About the Perinatal Education Associates, Inc.

Perinatal Education Associates is an international company 
dedicated to promoting positive pregnancy outcomes through education, promotion of evidence-based research, family centered care, maternal/child health advocacy and awareness.

We embrace the focus of mind-body-spirit birthing and treating the woman as a whole human being...

We believe in providing expectant and new parents with the most up to date information so they can make the best decisions for themselves, those who rely on them and their families. Education is a key component in being pregnant and raising a family.

Our staff take great care in researching topics of interest to maternal/child health professionals. It is vital professionals have access to current research. When professionals have the most current research, their care meets and exceeds the expectations of the families for which they care. 

Our customers and clients include hospitals throughout the US and Canada, medical centers, universities and university nursing departments, medical schools, Healthy Start Coalitions, childbirth education organizations, physician groups, midwifery groups, home health care, postpartum support groups, childbirth educators, doulas, lactation educators/consultants, pregnancy yoga instructors, massage therapists, and of course, expectant parents.
