Join us on the Capitol steps as we march for moms and rally to improve birth!
While consumers, health care professionals and diverse stakeholders gather in the nation’s capital for the March for Moms, the annual Rally to Improve Birth will take place simultaneously in states and communities across the country.
One in every three Americans is born through major surgery and we have the highest rates of maternal death and injury, the lowest birth weights, and the widest disparities in the entire developed world.
We believe that birth can be better and that it matters for the lifelong mental health and well-being of the entire family.
We believe that women are the ultimate decisions makers in childbirth, and they have the right to be treated with dignity and compassion.
We believe that the U.S. maternity care system is decades behind what we know is best for mothers and babies and that there is no real motivation for the system to change.
But most importantly, we believe that when consumers and health care professionals have the tools to inspire change, they will take action.
