Our Purpose

WOMB is a young 501c3 NH nonprofit with a mission to empower and enrich the lives of all women through information, resources and community during the journey into and through every stage of motherhood. WOMB believes no woman should have to navigate motherhood alone and has a vision that pregnancy, labor, birth and the postpartum be honored and respected as pieces of a sacred journey.The WOMB Initiative is slowly building capacity to offer all women/families access to highly qualified/trained educators & holistic practitioners at little to no cost. Including classes on pregnancy, birth, labor & delivery, and the postpartum, Prenatal Breastfeeding Courses, Lactation Consultations, Prenatal preparation, Nutrition & Body work, Birth Planning, postpartum depression support, classes for teens and preteens, and general women's health topics (pre-conception, fitness, nutrition, stress management, menopause, & more).WOMB will build our community through the time-honored tradition of joining with other women and being supported to learn and grow. We will foster connections and empowerment through our birth story circles, breastfeeding circles, pregnancy loss support groups, traveling nursing nook, doula course, and community events, because when women feel connected and informed, it leads to healthier outcomes for them, for their babies, and for all of us.
