There are so many ways you can help Improving Birth continue to advocate for respectful, evidence-based care for women.
Become a Member
Joining Improving Birth is one of the easiest ways to support our organization and the work we do. Membership fees support our general operating budget -- we are a non-profit, California 501(c)(3) -- and in return Members receive:
- 10% discount in the shop
- Access to our private Facebook group, made up of other motivated members creating change in their communities—with each other’s and our support
- Exclusive “10 Steps to Improve Birth in Your Community” (PDF)—a general guide for IB members, created by our executive team, with our suggestions for local community action to improve birth
Invest in Our Cause
We are a slim organization. Contributions and proceeds from sales go straight back to running our education, awareness, and advocacy campaigns, and paying the people who make them happen—all of whom volunteer at least ¾ of their time. Make a Tax-Deductible Contribution by check, credit card, or PayPal
Participate in Improving Birth
Attend a Rally near you or help to coordinate a rally; volunteer your social media, community organizing, or legal skills; or help expand our cause right in your area. Contact us here and let us know you’re interested.
Sponsor one of our Rallies
Sponsorship packages get your brand or organization on thousands of t-shirts, printed materials, and media materials that will be seen by tens of thousands of people. In 2012, over 2,000 healthcare providers received literature from Improving Birth, almost 10,000 people participated in our rallies, and over one million were reached through social media.
