Did you know that in our 95 year history, we helped found the first nurse-midwifery school, opened the first urban birth center, and even showed the first birth movie on the big screen? Find these and other amazing accomplishments in the interactive timeline of our rich and robust history.
And we’re certainly not slowing down after 95 years.
2013 will be a landmark year, and we need your help to make the most of it. In the first few months of the year, we’ll issue a series of reports on addressing the liability crisis in maternity care, a major report on the costs of maternity care, and the results of Listening to Mothers III, our long-awaited third national survey on women’s childbearing experiences. These landmark resources, like so many previous Childbirth Connection publications, will spark change and drive transformation.
And there is no better time for this work than now. In our nearly century-long history, we’ve never seen so much political will from leaders, so much passion from grassroots advocates, and so much collaboration among clinicians and other stakeholders. We’re at the tipping point. Help us take advantage of this incredible opportunity with your pledge of support. Give $95 for our 95th birthday, and help us transform maternity care before we turn 100!
