The Mother Lode for All Parents
For almost two decades, Pregnancy & Newborn has brought a bounty of thoughtful and trustworthy resources to moms and their budding broods. From positive pregnancy test to prepping for labor to (finally!) meeting your baby and stepping into real-life motherhood, we have what you need to make informed decisions from where you sit now, in the home you’re lovingly building for your unique family.
New parents, single mothers, households with two mamas (or dads!), and every parent in between: We’re here to help, to celebrate, to advocate, to embrace change and challenges, and to offer solidarity for all the many moments of pregnancy, postpartum, and parenthood.
And because life doesn’t come with a manual, perhaps the breadcrumbs of other mothers’ lived experiences—many from seasoned Pregnancy & Newborn editors and our medical expert contributors—can be your go-to guide for support (and a few belly laughs, too). It’s those little bits and pieces of authentic stories that you’ll find here at Pregnancy & Newborn. The bigger picture is our mission to empower every parent in their present moment and become a trusted companion whenever needed. So, please, stay a while, and know we’re so happy you’re here.
