If you are expecting a baby or planning for a new baby, this meet up group is for you!! Come and join us for excellent prenatal support and information. Having a baby is one of life's biggest milestones and is such an exciting time for moms and dads to be! Though exciting, it can be overwhelming, and there is so much to learn!!

We will help answer questions and explore things like: How do I choose a care provider and birth location? Do I want to have a hospital birth or a home birth? How do I know if my pregnancy is high risk? Is there anything I can do prior to conception to have a healthy pregnancy? What do I do if I have trouble breastfeeding? What do I need to do to baby proof my home? What kind of exercise should I do during pregnancy? What kinds of foods should I be eating during pregnancy? Should I have my baby circumcised? Do I want to have a natural or medicated birth? What kinds of things can I do to help ensure a healthy pregnancy? What can I do to avoid an unnecessary C-section? Should I breastfeed or bottle feed my baby? Do I want to have a water birth? Should I hire a doula? What are the benefits of placenta encapsulation? And the list goes on......... We talk about anything pregnancy/baby/birth/breastfeeding/parenting related, so have your questions ready!!
We will have multiple varying local birth professionals available at each meet up that are passionate about birth and care very much about helping moms to have the best possible birth and pregnancy that they can!
