Birthing Magazine was born of the heart back in 1997. The goal has not changed since: to provide Calgary families with information about pregnancy, childbirth and beyond. Our goal is to educate women on the unlimited birth options available to them. We emphasize alternatives for which information may not always be as easy to find, topics such as midwifery care, homebirth, full duration breastfeeding and attachment parenting.
