One of Rochester Area Birth Network’s major goals has been to supply the Rochester area with information and referrals on different options, specialty areas, and community resources in pregnancy, labor, and birth. Through our Community Resource Brochure families can find the information and resources they need on topics that can be difficult to find in the mainstream. Below is a list of topics available, including lists of doulas, midwives, and independent childbirth educators.   If you don’t see what you need please email us!

Printed information is available on the following topics:

Breastfeeding benefits

Information on other topics related to childbearing is available by contacting RABN. The topic list is updated on a regular basis, so please call or email for more information. If we do not have anything in print on a particular topic, we will do our best to help you find the information you need.

The lists of recommended professionals are all members of Rochester Area Birth Network and adhere to the Mother Friendly Childbirth Initiative .  If you are a professional who would like to be included on these referrals please join RABN and send us an e-mail with all of your information.
