Founded in 2000, BirthNet is a non-profit organization whose mission is to educate the public about maternity care in order to improve it.

BirthNet’s goal is to encourage all women and families to learn about their rights and options during the childbearing year. Birth options, such as where, with whom, and how to give birth, are reproductive rights.

We work to improve maternity care for women of all ages, ethnic backgrounds, races, religions, abilities, sexual orientations, and socio-economic circumstances.

BirthNet coordinates programs with our Speakers Bureau. Our primary programs include:

  • education in the classroom (middle school through college)
  • community forums or workshops
  • media outreach
  • gathering and distributing information about maternity care
  • networking with professionals and policy makers
BirthNet has endorsed the evidence-based Mother-Friendly Childbirth Initiative, developed by the Coalition for Improving Maternity Services. BirthNet also supports the Midwives Model of Care.
