Parenting & Pregnancy Links

Hello, here you will find links to other birth and parenting related pages, information sites, and places where I am listed.  I am also featuring my Etsy shop where I sell handmade gifts for babies and children.  This section is always under construction with updates and new additions.  When my former site was lost due to hosting error in 2013 the parents page with links and lots of info was the main content area that was irretrievable.  It also had been regularly updated and added to.  So, this page isn’t well developed yet, but check back often.
