Guide for New Parents in Huntsville Alabama

Alabama’s first English-speaking city is arguably better known for its space and rocket museum than it is for its birth options. But there’s a reason families are falling in love with the Rocket City.  

Expectant moms can choose from many doulas offering services including birth support, placenta encapsulation, and postpartum support. Huntsville is also home to a vast array of breastfeeding support groups, mommy and me classes, and mom groups. 

For families with toddlers ready to explore, there’s no shortage of fun activities, including museums, farms, gyms, and botanical gardens. Bridge Street Town Centre is a real gem, featuring restaurants, shopping, a carousel, performers, and kid’s activities.
