Resources

Ocean Fresh 48-19.jpg

I am a huge advocate for mamas making informed decisions regarding the care given to them and their baby during pregnancy, childbirth, and the postpartum period. I have put together a wonderful collection of resources that have either been of great personal value to me during my own pregnancy and journey through motherhood or have come highly recommended to me by others.

Also included are resources available locally to the Tri-Cities & surrounding areas, as they relate to pregnancy, natural childbirth, mamas, babies, etc.

 

I hope the things on this list come to hold as much value to you as they have to me! I will continue to add to the list as more resources become available/ known to me. Any suggestions appreciated!
