Childbirth Connection

Cold and Allergy Remedies Compatible with Breastfeeding

There are a great number of websites designed to help you calculate your due date, track the baby’s development week by week, and meet up with other parents online.  Some of them are really terrible, most are just sort of awful, and at this point we have found none that we can recommend because of the plethora of ads for unnecessary products and the lack of information on natural and alternative choices in pregnancy and childbirth.  If we find a site we like, we will update this page.
