Who We Are

When Plumtree Baby was founded in 2011, we recognized that existing resources for birth professionals were not keeping up with current research and practices. Many materials also lacked polish and professionalism. That's why we decided to take our years of experience as childbirth professionals and create modern, diverse, evidence-based resources. 

That's how Plumtree Baby was born.

Since our founding, we have published nearly 100 titles which have been consistently rated five stars by our customers. In addition, we have designed and published dozens of branded resources for organizations and hospitals. Designed to be affordable and user-friendly, our products and services consistently receive five-star ratings.

As team of women who are mothers, educators and professionals, we believe deeply in what we do and understand the needs of childbirth professionals and expectant parents.

We look forward to working with you!

Expectant parents may be unprepared for their first moments with their new baby, or they don't give it much thought in advance. Educators and healthcare providers play an important role in informing parents about what to expect at birth and supporting them at this pivotal moment.

Education is often needed to address lack of knowledge, misinformation and misconceptions about newborn care topics, and skin-to-skin contact is no exception. Use your listening skills as an educator to identify your client's current understanding of skin-to-skin contact. Then, help them understand the benefits and the do's and don'ts of this practice. Education helps calm fears and encourages this beneficial practice in new families.
