After 15 years of working with new and growing families, and 10 years in Portland's West End, Birth Roots had become ROOT BOUND! We've moved to a new home that is easier to find, easier to get to, friendlier parking, more space, toddler-friendly class space and the most amazing yard for our new OUTDOOR CLASSROOM for our Baby Roots parent-toddler programming.
The transition to parenthood and family life continues to be an incredibly vulnerable one. Study after study shows that when pregnancy and the first three years of life go well, children are set up for lifelong benefits. Birth Roots' Community Supported Parenting programming is a powerful safety net that supports parental development, creates opportunities for rich peer to peer support, and connects parents with local businesses and resources to support them along the way. Isolation, anxiety, overwhelm, and depression can all be prevented or mitigated with Community Supported Parenting programming.
