Maryland Pregnancy, Birth, & Postpartum Resources

I’m excited to say I recently found a very good friend of mine is expecting!  As this is their first and they are fairly new to the area, I thought I would start compiling a list of local resources for them, and I figured why not share it with my community?   I sincerely hope others will find this helpful.  Please feel free to share and let me know if you think there’s anything or anyone that should be added!  I will end up expanding this to include more Baltimore and DC support so please send any helpful resources my way.
