Online Support Communities
Solace for Mothers - Solace for Mothers is an organization designed for the sole purpose of providing and creating support for women who have experienced childbirth as traumatic. Birth trauma is real and can result from an even seemingly “normal” birth experience.
KellyMom - Evidence based information on breastfeeding and parenting.
Birth Without Fear - Birth Without Fear began as a simple passion to let women know they have choices in childbirth. It then evolved to become an inspiration and support to women and their families through their trying to conceive, pregnancy, birth and postpartum journeys.
Evidence Based Birth - For decades, the vast majority of birth research evidence has been locked away in medical journals. EBB believes in putting the non-biased evidence on pregnancy and childbirth back in the hands of the people who need it the most: women and families.
