Research and resources for perinatal professionals.
Childbirth educators and other perinatal professionals work hard to share evidence-based information and resources in a culturally sensitive manner. They also strive to strike a balance with families’ expectations and the accurate realities faced during the transition to parenthood with a young infant. This webinar, “Lullabies and Lactation: Navigating Breastfeeding and Safe Sleep” presented by Lyndsey Hookway, Bsc, RNC HV, IBCLC, is an amazing resource for childbirth educators and other perinatal professionals who want to provide families with resources grounded in research while acknowledging the challenges that having a new baby brings.
Trusted resources, stories and answers for parents.
Miscarriage is the thing no one wants to think about during pregnancy and yet, it's almost always somewhere in the back of your mind. It's a quiet worry for some and a major source of anxiety for others. Signs of a miscarriage aren't always completely clear, but it's a good idea to be aware of signs that miscarriage could be happening, and what you should do.
