Helpful Resources for Your Birth Journey

Building Your Team of Support

Are you looking for resources and referrals but don't know where to start? As a community builder and birth worker, I make it a priority to network and work in collaboration with other perinatal professionals locally here in Portland, OR and beyond. Check out the incredible list of resources and information below.

New Parent Group AT Brave Care Cedar Hills

Connect & Find Community

I'm exicted to be partnering with Brave Care Cedar Hills to bring you a weekly parent group for parents and their babies (1- week to 1-year).

 

This is an opportunity for you to connect with other families, build community and get support. Bring your parenting and new born card questions. If you're newly postpartum, let us help you through your recovery time.

 

 When: Wednesdays from 10:30am - 12pm
Where: Brave Care Cedar Hills in Beaverton, OR

Craniosacral therapy (CST) is a form of bodywork or alternative therapy that uses gentle touch to palpate the synarthrodial joints of the cranium. The use of CST can have positive effects for both you and your baby. Schedule a visit with Teresa of A Healing Approach. Teresa offers services in your home or in her Portland-based clinic.
