Contact us on 88848 64036 to make an appointment for a paid, private counselling session. BBN has some of the best offerings in childbirth education, lactation counselling, physiotherapy, mental health counselling, online midwifery consultations, and other modalities.

BBN’s highly experienced team members strive to understand each woman’s and family’s situation and help from finding a caring doctor or hospital, to supportive care covering pre-conception through early childhood (including mental health).

BBN has years of feedback from Bangalore women regarding the care they received during childbearing. Based on their experiences and our interactions with obstetricians, gynaecologists and paediatricians, we have compiled a database of providers supportive of normal physiological birth and holistic postpartum and newborn care. We’d love to talk to you about how we can help you make informed and empowered decisions that are right for you.
