Summary

Birth Matters aims to improve the culture of birth in Virginia by promoting an evidence-based model of maternity care and supporting care providers who practice mother friendly care.

About

Birth Matters is a statewide organization with local groups of parents and professionals who share information, offer support, and affirm the rights of women and families to make informed choices throughout the childbearing years. They educate our communities through birth circles and classes, video viewings, library displays, guest speakers.

They provide support with online yahoo group (for members), website, and resources to help women and their families.

They network with the birthing community by supporting caregivers who provide evidence-based care, distributing a statewide newsletter, holding events that bring people together to discuss birth.
