I want to start a "business" per say - I just completed my Bradley instructor training, and in about 8w should get the "ok" to start provisional teaching - I want to get the word out about my classes, and I think I want to start a webpage or blog of sorts.


We're also going to teach a cloth diapering class from our home (a few people have asked us, so it seems simple enough )



so I need ideas about what to call my business - Bradley Method & Cloth Diapering. Sam will be teaching with me as well. We live in Iowa....ummm we will be marketing to small towns all over our area (within an hour drive)...hmmmmm I duno what else, I'm exhausted

they didnt give us any guidelines at class - they just said we're responsible for our own marketing. I just want a "name" for something, and then it can be like "Bradley Natural Child Birth Classs" and "Cloth Diapering" and eventually post partum doula

I offer childbirth classes that I did with Childbirth International, my name is Peaceful Birth Services because that's how I think birth should be is Peaceful. I hear a lot of Believing in Birth or Mother Nature Birth Services. Things like that.

Sorry, I know that this won't be helpful at all, but I just snickered out loud at my train of thought:

"Bradley Childbirth and Cloth Diapers in Iowa... hmm... Iowa has cornfields... cornfields, cloth, and childbirthbirth - the Three C's Birth Preparation... Cornfields... can't get those cornfields out of my head... ok, back on track - cornfields and childbirth - Children of the Corn - she could call her business Children of the Corn"...

Yes, this is Nicole needing another cup of coffee with her lunch.

Let's try a more productive business name, lol.. I don't think Children of the Corn will fly....

What about Cloth Baby Birth Services... or... Green Baby Birth Services.... or... Natural Family Beginnings...

I would double check, though, about the AAHCC guidelines for marketing, though... I know that, in 2004, you could get a slap on the wrist for combining more than one method or service with Bradley in your marketing materials/business information. A lot of people got away with it, but many others got in trouble.

Okay, so I'm back... (ended up doing more than running out to the bus). I am really bad at creative stuff, so I dunno if I'm gonna be much help!

I would say maybe make it something totally different that way as you add things or change what you actually do it doesn't effect the name. I like Nicole's idea about Natural Family Beginnings. I know a woman in my area and her business is called "Mothering Grace" and has a cute logo of a child's profile while sitting with wings/leaves from his/her back. Turns out her daughter is named Grace! Cute! She sells cloth diapers. Plus if Bradley is going to search you out it isn't in the name, you might be easier to catch if you include Bradley in the business name and they might make more of a stink about it.

This literally made me LOL! My mom is over and we were sitting on the couch watching TV in silence and I just burst out laughing. She thinks I'm nuts!

In all seriousness - I suck at this kind of stuff, but I really like Nicole's idea of Natural Family Beginnings.
