Homebirth Family Resources
As an expectant parent you may get a lot of advice about birth and parenting from well-meaning friends and family. One of the goals of our practice is for our clients to be well informed consumers of pregnancy and birth. One of the best ways to accomplish this is through self learning. We give you these suggestions as a starting point in your research as you begin your journey towards parenthood. Many of our families who have positive, empowering births attribute it to their ability to take responsibility for their labor and birth experiences. Through these pregnancy and postpartum resources our hope is that you will develop your own set of values and ideas surrounding your pregnancy and birth experience.
Rising Moon Community
Rising Moon has an active Facebook presence, using two ways to communicate. The first is simply a public page called Rising Moon Midwifery. The other is a private group called Rising Moon Midwifery Community and is for clients only. In order to become a part of the RMM Community group you must “Ask to Join” from within Facebook. Both the public page and the private group can be found by doing a search while logged into Facebook.
The RMM Community Facebook group is an excellent resource, providing a forum for mother-to-mother support as you journey into homebirth and parenthood. Feel free to introduce yourself, find mothers close to home, and ask questions about products or baby care. You will also find recipes to keep you eating healthfully and in season, as well as listings for events such as mom’s meetings, gatherings, and classes.
