Babble Blogger Favorites: Top 20 Pregnancy Fan Pages on Facebook

Top 20 Favorite Pregnancy Fan Pages on FacebookI have no idea how I survived pregnancy without Facebook. I still remember the day my siblings finally got me to sign up — it was just a few weeks after my second child was born, and I was at home and bored.

First it was fun seeing all my old friends and keeping up to date with their lives through status updates and pictures. As time went on and more and more businesses started joining, the use of Facebook has gone up exponentially — it’s not just friends showing up in our feeds, but favorite websites and blogs, too.

There is so much amazing information being shared on Facebook every day. Now that I am trying to conceive my fourth child, I am finding a lot of the fan pages to be of great use to me. I get information on the latest research, new studies on how to increase your fertility, and of course, a lot of humor and gorgeous pictures to boot.

I have some pages that I like to visit more often than others and for you, I’ve compiled my favorite fan pages on Facebook. From trying to conceive, through finding tips on infant feeding, each one of these pages offers something I find very valuable and think you should check them out!
