Review for Birth Roots, Portland, ME, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I attended a prenatal class at Birth Roots that was by far the best class I have taken anywhere, ever. I thought I had read every book and was prepared for labor, but the prenatal class took birth preparation to a different level. It was a very powerful educational experience that impacted the participants as individuals, parents and couples. The newborn class was also amazing. I don't know how I would have survived the first three months with my very fussy daughter without the tools, laughter and wisdom that emerged from that group. Birth Roots is an incredible community builder. Our group is still getting together weekly nine months later to support each other as hard working, new moms. These are friendships that were born at Birth Roots and are here to stay.

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

my skills and attitude as a parent. By being a more confident mom, I am also able to reach out and be a more supportive and active partner, friend and community member. Birth Roots strengthens individuals, partnerships and creates communities.

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

the magic that is created through their classes and the women who teach and attend them. That magic affects me every day as a new mom.

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

informed, warm, down-to-earth, healing, supportive and overall wonderful human beings

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

revolutionize the parenting experience for our generation, save thousands of partnerships and heal our fragmented communities
