Review for Birth Roots, Portland, ME, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

After giving birth to my son, I realized I was not at all prepared to care for an infant. I don't think you can be truly prepared. But fortunately, I stumbled upon Birthroots. The weekly classes I took provided a place to talk, laugh, and learn with other mothers. We commiserated over our sleepless nights and learned that we weren't alone in raising our newborns. I finished taking my classes seven months ago but still meet for weekly playgroups with the friends I met at Birthroots. I feel truly lucky that I found Birthroots when I did.

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

I still meet for weekly playgroups with the mothers I met at Birthroots.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

make sure all new mothers know about and have access to the newborn classes at Birthroots.

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

how it helped me survive the sleepless of raising a newborn.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

empathatic and knowledgeable.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

provide support to every mother and baby.

Ways to make it better...

I had learned about Birthroots sooner.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

maintaining their funding so they can continue offer great classes.
