Pregnancy & New Baby Event: BabyCenter is the #1 Global Interactive Parenting Network



Whether you are expecting for the first time or up-teenth time, pregnancy education and resources are important for a healthy pregnancy. Even though I am not taking any traditional classes at the hospital or other facility this pregnancy, I am still referencing books and online resources to refresh my memory, look up my various “symptoms” and to make sure I am on the right track to ensuring my bun in the oven is baked to perfection. BabyCenter is a leading online resource and community that also offers online courses, phone applications and books to make sure you have the information you and your loved ones need to aid you in this journey of motherhood. 


Since my phone or laptop are always close at hand, the free iPhone application and online class option are great resources for me, although I would recommend traditional books like the ones they just released to access more detailed information. Their new Pregnancy and Baby books are coffee table worthy and well organized, full of gorgeous color photos and easy-to-read. The website is great to search for quick questions, find support from other moms, and they even have a place where you can keep track of milestones (really slacked on this one with my daughter!). 


More information about BabyCenter:
Last year, 7 in 10 babies born in the United States were BabyCenter babies and more than 8 million moms in the United States turn to BabyCenter each month for information, advice and guidance.

As the world’s partner in parenting, BabyCenter offers moms trusted advice from hundreds of experts around the globe, medical advisory board-approved information, friendship with other moms, and support at every stage of your child’s development.

In an effort to be there for mom during her pregnancy and parenting journey, wherever and whenever she needs it most, BabyCenter continually strives to offer valuable parenting tools. Among the latest and greatest include:

  • BabyCenter My Pregnancy Today App
    This new, free application for the iPhone and iTouch, guides expectant moms through their pregnancy journey, offering award-winning, medically reviewed health content; advice from obstetricians, midwives, nutritionists, and other experts; daily activities and reminders; and conversation and connection with other moms-to-be in BabyCenter’s community.

  • BabyCenter “Preparing for Labor and Birth” Online Class
    The BabyCenter Class is a convenient, at-home option for moms who can’t attend hospital childbirth classes due to hectic work schedules or being put on bed rest. And the price is right, too! For only $39.99, the all-new 2-hour instructional course lets you hear from doctors, ask your questions, and build confidence for your big day. Preparing for Labor and Birth includes: An explanation of the signs and stages of labor; What to expect during labor; Labor and birth stories from new moms; An overview of your pain-management options; A tour of a delivery room; Suggestions for creating your birth plan; A checklist to help you prepare for the big day and more.

  • BabyCenter Parenting Books (BabyCenter® Pregnancy and BabyCenter®Baby)
    These two new practical and reassuring books provide pregnant women and new mothers with all of the information and support they need during this exciting new time in their lives, with a blend of expert advice and true “mom wisdom.” Both are great, highly visual, reference books to keep on the nightstand for that nagging question or concern that inevitably pops up in the middle of the night.

  • Mom Answers
    This new interactive tool gives BabyCenter moms an emotionally supportive environment where they can ask questions and get answers straight from other moms who’ve had similar life experiences. It’s like having access to 8 million best girlfriends 24/7.

  • Milestones
    The new Milestones tool provides BabyCenter moms the ability to quickly and easily record important pregnancy and childhood milestones and share them with friends and family via e-mail, Facebook, and the BabyCenter Community. It’s a fun way to create an online “baby book.”
