Online Pregnancy Resources

Archived Q&A and Reviews


The mailing list I am on is through . They send you a weekly update on the development of your fetus/baby (it continues after your baby is born.) It is not like this digest though. In order to talk to others at the same stage of my pregnancy I used the babycenter bulletin boards and chat rooms. The bulletin boards are organized by the month you are due, and the chat rooms are organized into pre-pregnancy, pregnant and baby sections. In addition there are weekly scheduled chats for more specific groups... for example everyone due in July can come chat at 3 on Wednesday. I don't know if this set up meets your needs, but I found it was pretty fun and actually met three women with whom I became e-mail pals. The site lets you pick a user name and your e-mail address is not displayed unless you authorize it so you can stay annonymous if you like. They do not sell thier subscriber lists either. The only problem that I have is that from home it can take a while to load the site since the campus server uses the slow modems still.

You might want to check out They send out newsletters for babies, and might very well have them for pregnancy too. That said, it isn't a local community-based mailing list so perhaps it isn't exactly what you are looking for. But it's a great site/reference point for all things baby!

I believe which is hosted by ivillage (a women's network group) has on their website a pregnancy calendar and chat group program that goes by your due date. My sister-in-law used it and enjoyed it.

From: a (2/99) is not a pregnancy mailing list but you can go to bulletin boards by your due date and there are chat rooms for various interest groups.

Try for recent births and current pregnancies and or search for older kids and recent births and pregnancies.
