For moms

How do I know which services I need?

We encourage you to read the service descriptions, research online and offline, talk to other moms in our group, read some of our recommended books and websites, and come to your conclusions about which services will be best for you.

How do I find available providers?

Browse through the directory and click on the service for which you want to find local providers. Then go through the list and contact the ones you think and feel could be the best fit for you. You can also use the search function at the top of the page.

For birth workers

I own a homebirth related business. How can I get listed in the directory?

To list your business, you will need to do the following steps:

  1. Create an account.
  2. Add a business to your account.
  3. Optionally, add contact information to the business, such as phone numbers and addresses.
  4. Click "List services" button on your business page and select in which categories you wish your business to be listed.
  5. Click "Publish" button to make your business visible to visitors.

How are the listings sorted? Can I have my listing appear higher on the lists?

The listings are randomly sorted so that each visitor will see them in a different order. There is no plan to allow businesses to be shown with preference. The algorithm is designed to give each business equal opportunity to show up among the top results.
