Birth Roots is deeply committed to elevating and amplifying supportive perinatal resources in Maine. Research shows that access to providers like counselors, pelvic floor therapists, and doulas improve health and well-being outcomes in families, and yet, awareness of these options is often dependent on one’s prenatal care provider, cultural background, and/or family belief systems.

In 2006, we began producing Free resource guides that detail more than 125 perinatal providers and family supports in southern Maine. Last year, we printed our 17th Birth Roots Guide and 3,000 copies have since been distributed. We will begin gathering resources for the 18th printing in Winter 2024-25.
