Review for Birth Roots, Portland, ME, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Last March I gave birth to an amazing little man. He was healthy and happy, we were truly blessed. I felt so prepared for motherhood. I assumed breast feeding would be a natural, wonderful bonding experience for me and my young son. Yikes was I wrong! We struggled a great deal in the first week. An amazing lactation consultant came to my house to assist us and she reccommended Birth Roots to us. After week 2 and cleared for driving I bundled up my little guy and made my way across town in search of anwsers, help, reassurance... something. After that day we did not miss a monday @ Eat, Sleep, Nurse. The program is free and facilitated by very knowledgable woman. The environment was so warm and inviting, we loved snuggling up and listening to others dilemas and sharing our own. We then moved on to taking the Buds class. I met some amazing moms and had found my" Flock". Then came the sprouts class and my flock grew. We would meet and share stories and just enjoy adult conversation. As the babies grew and developed we would watch them interact. It was an amazing 5 months... then back to work I went. It was so hard on me. Thankfully my flocked stayed together and we just celebrated our one year birthdays together as a group. I thank BirthRoots for bringing us together and being there to lend support to so many new mothers. It is such a scary and vulnerable time and I am so greatful I found Birth Roots. I reccomend them to every pregnant woman I meet... or see in the grocery store :)
