A Bumps2Babies (B2B) contact provide support to all members who are expecting throughout pregnancy and after the baby arrives. There is a B2B contact for each Message Community. You are free to contact your B2B with questions at any stage of your pregnancy and early parenthood journey. To be assigned a B2B when you are pregnant, you need to be included on the Message Expectant Parents List. For this, simply update your account to indicate that your family is growing and include your due date. For moms of young babies that join us after the baby was born, you can still have a B2B contact just contact your assigned B2B contact in your area.
