Birth Roots is to the perinatal phase (9 months before and 9 months after birth) what a doula is to the hours of labor and childbirth, an advocate for acknowledging and meeting a birthing woman's non-clinical needs to feel safe and central to her process of becoming a mother, both physically and emotionally. Women who participate in the Birth Roots Community gain increased self-awareness about their transition and are much less likely to feel traumatized by the birth process and are more able to employ skills and resources for preventing postpartum depression.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

watching a community of mothers/families learn to rely on each other, benefiting from my own "Flock" of parents to grow with, helping first time mothers feel confident and competent through this vulnerable time.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the level of connection I feel to other women during a time [early parenting] when many women are most likely to feel isolated and alone.
