Description

We love to support new parents and we want you and your support partner to have access to the most up-to-date childbirth information, so you are empowered to make informed choices, for both yourselves and your new family. At birthEd we know the importance of how crucial support is when we have a baby. We also know the friendships, that you will develop from sharing this experience,and being at a similar stage in life as others, will be treasured.

We want you to give you an opportunity to meet and join others beginning their parenting journey. Your birthEd childbirth class is the perfect place to start new friendships. Join your group’s closed Facebook group, where members can continue conversations, and share experiences. Be part of a network to help guide and support each other.
