Special upcoming Events:
The Birthing Circle is organizing a community Baby Shower for 10 newly arrived and pregnant Refugee families in a local refugee community in Maryland. We will be providing a meal, childbirth education, and baby boxes for safe sleep, filled with essential infant items. The estimated cost of this event will be $1,000.
Please help us welcome our new neighbors to Maryland with all of the love that we have! Donate and find out more info on the link below.
The Birthing Circle Overview:
The Birthing Circle believes that community is crucial, and makes a huge difference during birth. We are committed to providing support to families through the birth process, and to improving the health and well-being of our community by expanding the local birthing options available.
- The Birthing Circle strives to improve the health and well-being of our local community, one family at a time
- We provide peer-to-peer support in person and online to families through the childbirth process
- We believe that knowledge is a key step in empowering families, and work to hold a space where information can be shared. Our goal is to provide encouragement and support for families making informed choices for their birth and babies
- We work to connect our families with respected community providers, expanding the options that are available to choose from
We hold multiple in person group meetings each month, in three different counties. Check out our Calendar tab to find more information on these meetings, as well as a list of all upcoming birth & baby classes, and local events.
Families and women deserve choices in pregnancy, childbirth, and postpartum. This is only possible if families know what all of their options are. We are passionate about sharing all of the wonderful local resources available, and supporting families in whatever choice they make. Check out our Local Resources tab for more information on your local options.
Find us on Instagram @TheBirthingCircle, on Facebook for Frederick County , Montgomery County or Carroll County. Each County also has it’s own private Facebook group; information is on that county’s FB page.
We love talking with families, and if you are currently pregnant, we’d love to set up a Meal Train for after your delivery. Please let us know if there is any other way we can support you! You can also head over to our Lending Library tab and find books to borrow for free.
