A Labor of Love Natural Resources, currently transitioning to a non-profit 501c3 model, was founded in 1988 to serve new families through education, empowerment, and community. While specializing in natural and conscious parenting, we ultimately advocate for informed decisions that support the optimal development of each unique new person and their family. Some folks argue about what’s best for baby; we believe what’s best for baby is the health and well-being of the entire family. Parenting is often a negotiation of competing emotional, mental, and physical needs. Deeply rooted in evidence-based best practices for pregnancy, labor, birth, and early parenting, Natural Resources offers holistic classes, the safest, most effective products, and a warm and inclusive community.
