It's Your Birth...Know Your Options

The Capital Area BirthNetwork is an organization of individuals and professionals committed to helping women and families in Mid-Michigan and the surrounding area have safe and fulfilling pregnancy and birth experiences while empowering them in their role as health care consumers. We promote an awareness of evidence-based care and informed decision-making through advocacy,
information and support.

We believe birth is normal, natural, and healthy.  We promote mother-friendly care through:

Advocacy: by leading a grassroots movement of individuals who insist on and support mother-friendly care, based on the principles developed by the Coalition for Improving Maternity Services (CIMS) and the Six Care Practices that Support Normal Birth outlined by Lamaze International;

Information: by providing facts about and contact for mother-friendly maternity care;

Support: by ensuring that families have a network of experienced, encouraging people to help them make informed choices and embrace birth.
