Village Birth & Breastfeeding Circle & Clinic
"It takes village...."
Birth, breastfeeding, parenting - they may be 'natural', but they do not come naturally for many
Because we no long live in villages, watching the generation before us do it, so when it comes to our turn we are not quite sure what to do
And this is why we have created the Village Birth and Breastfeeding Circle - a team of mothers, health professionals, and doulas who want to help new parents through pregnancy and into their new roles
We have all been before - confused, feeling alone. But you don't need to be - join us
(Facebook Page name is Perth Pregnancy and Parenting Circle)
