Pregnancy Resources


The library is no stranger to babies, toddlers, moms and dads. For many expecting parents, right after leaving the clinic or doctor's office the very next stop is the public library, where resources abound on studying the stages of pregnancy, the essentials of parenting, and sharing with other moms and dads the joys and anxieties of childbirth.

The following list is by no means exhaustive, but should be considered a general guide on well-trusted books and websites known for credibility on pregnancy, mothering and child care.
