Birth and Parenting Resources You Can Trust

From car seats to colostrum, inquisitive parents can Google an “answer” to just about any child rearing question they might have. But Googlers beware. Not all online sources of information are credible. Who can you trust?

  4. hi there your new doula training sonuds awesome. I trained with Deborah Pascal-Bonaro long ago for both birth and postpartum. My life took a different path, and am now licensed professional counselor specializing in the emotions of pregnancy and birth, such as anxiety and depression during pregnancy due to sexual abuse, and caring for postpartum mood disorders such as depression and OCD. I am also the developer of the BirthTouch training for birth professionals. I’ve been thinking about taking another training and I’ll look around your site. Congratulations and good luck to you! Namaste, Kathy
