They do not have to sacrifice motherhood in order to be persons. Liberation was meant to expand women's opportunities, not to limit them. The self-esteem that has been found in new pursuits can also be found in mothering." - Elaine Heffner NMRG | 36 Table of Contents Activities to Do with Your Baby/Child6 - 8Acupuncture 9 Birthing Centers10 Breastfeeding Support 11 Breast Pump Rentals/Purchase12 Childbirth Education13/14 Chiropractors 16 CPR Classes - Infant/Child 17 Doulas (Birth & Postpartum)18 - 21 Herbalists 22 Homeopathic/Naturopathic Practices 23 Massage Therapy & Reiki24 Maternity, Infant & Toddler Related Products 25 Mental Health Support 26 Midwives27 Mothers' Groups/Wellness 28 Nurse Practitioners 29 Nutritionists & Holistic Health Counselors 30 Obstetrics & Gynecology 31 Pediatric Medical & Dental Care 32 Pediatric Rehabilitation Services33/34 Pelvic Floor Rehabilitation 35 Photographers 36 Web Resources (State/Local Services) *See NMRG website for direct links Yoga/Exercise 37 Your Childs Safety: Baby/Childproofing Services 37 Disclaimer:TheNewMother'sResourceGuideismeanttobeastartingpointfor womenintheirjourneythroughlatepregnancyandbeyond.Asyouenjoythe resourceswithintheNMRG,pleaseknowtheNMRGdoesnotendorsespecific providers or businesses.It is incumbent upon all of us to ask questions of, research, andlearnaboutthepeopleweletintoourpregnancy,birthandpostpartum experiences.
