Pregnancy

Congratulations! Whether you’re expecting your first child or your fifth, pregnancy can be a joyous, anxiety-inducing, exciting time (often all at once).

 

Surely you’re getting advice about your pregnancy and raising kids from countless sources—including strangers on the street!—but here’s the case for adding NPN to the chorus of recommendations: Our community of parents has experienced many of the same challenges you’re facing now, from choosing a pediatrician to picking the perfect name, and they’re here to support you every step of the way from pregnancy to new mom and beyond. 

 

Don't miss our Expectant Moms Groups, a meeting for women in all stages of pregnancy to talk about the unique challenges and joys you face as moms-to-be. Check the NPN calendar for upcoming groups.


New! Check out our All About Baby Directory to find Chicago-area pregnancy resources such as doulas, estate planning and childcare.
