Let’s start with you.
Unfortunately, you are likely here because you have experienced or witnessed unnecessarily difficult or traumatic births that have left you feeling frustrated and angry. You may be seeking answers, healing, accountability and/or a strong desire to prevent this from happening to other families.
We typically all grow up with a “doctor knows best” mentality. It’s often difficult to understand that they too are working within a broken system that is built on fear of liability, a system that has significant financial motivators and ha system that has come to the conclusion that more interventions solve both of those issues.
Maternity care can and should be better. Birth matters, how we come into the world matters.

Our mission is to empower families, community leaders and care providers with the tools to improve maternity care from the bottom up where they live.
