BabyCenter.com | Pregnancy & New Mom Must Haves {review & giveaway}

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.
  • 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.”

My Thoughts

I was very excited to be able to share my thoughts on BabyCenter.com! I had used this site as a resource during my first pregnancy and with such great results, I am continuing to use it through my second pregnancy and of course well beyond as Baby Centers give  you the low down on your child up to age nine years old!

I was so excited to learn about the two brand new books offered by Baby Center! These books are wonderful resources for new, expecting, and well seasoned mothers! I’ve been reading them and learning so much from them. They’ve totally been a blessing to have!  If you at all are interested in the two books I mentioned, they can be purchased here.

I’d never been to a birthing class though I would have liked to attend one. The timing wasn’t right with our first child and being newly weds and new parents we couldn’t afford them at the time. I’m really excited about the Baby Center’s Online Childbirth Classes. I’ve been working my way through them in my spare time and in the convenience of my own home.  I’ve been learning so much and am feeling more confident in knowing so many things that could play out into the labor of my second child.  These classes are very affordable, well put together, and I would highly recommend them!
