Realbirth Named Best Parenting Resource
New York's premier pregnancy and parenting education center Realbirth has been named New York City's Best Parenting Resource in New York magazine's annual Best of New York edition, published on March 10.
The magazine described Realbirth as "a touchy-feely haven for new and expecting parents" providing "engaging childbirth education."
Realbirth founder Erica Lyon commented, "Our community has been growing steadily ever since we opened in 2003, and it's great that Realbirth has now been recognized as a true haven for expecting and new parents. Everyone needs a haven during the shift to parenthood, and it's an honor to be able to offer that service to New York's parents."
In March 2007, Erica Lyon's book The Big Book of Birth was described by the New York Post as "reassuring, humane and endlessly useful." The book has become the first must-have manual specifically designed for those giving birth.
Launched in December 2003 at 54 W22nd Street, Realbirth has changed the face of pregnancy, birth and postpartum classes by creating supportive information-packed classes and groups that clients trust enough to recommend to friends. Teaching pregnancy nutrition classes, green nursery classes, sling workshops and infant massage, Realbirth offers a range of support for adjusting to new parenthood.
