Monthly Series: Resources for Pregnancy, Childbirth and Parenthood

In the age of digital media, it seems as though everyone has a website and is blogging. The overload of information can be overwhelming for birth workers or expecting/new parents. For this reason, I have decided to feature my favorite websites and journals related to birth and parenthood each month. 

As a doula, I spend a lot of time researching the latest evidence-based studies on pregnancy, labor and birth and the postpartum period as well as blogs from fellow birth workers, birth activists and moms. For the month of November, I decided to start with my favorite evidence based websites.
