Review for Birth Roots, Portland, ME, USA
Birth Roots is so wonderful it feels too good to be true. It's a warm, welcoming, supportive, sympathetic and informative community and space for new (and established) parents. I was SO grateful for the prenatal classes, which answered so many questions and helped to take the fear out of labor and childbirth, and also for the Blossoming Newborns series which provided a friendly and structured space to chat with other new mamas about the challenges and joys of being a new parent. It's been so good to share stories and listen and know that other folks are going through the same things as me! Everyone at Birth Roots has been incredibly thoughtful and careful about providing a supportive, positive environment where folks share experiences without feeling judged, or feeling that there is a right and wrong way to parent. I really appreciate the work that Birth Roots does to support new parents and new families! I'm in a few Facebook groups with other new mamas from all around the country, and I've seen that very few of them have anything as supportive as Birth Roots to help them through the whirlwind of being a new parent, and it's a lot harder to navigate alone. It seems like Birth Roots is a really special and unique organization!
