BirthNetwork National began in October 1999 when five mothers began brainstorming on how to improve maternity care in their local community. They formed a non-profit organization to support anyone seeking information, resources and support for healthy, respectful maternity care. Soon after, they discovered the Mother-Friendly Childbirth Initiative (MFCI), which was created by the Coalition for Improving Maternity Services (CIMS), and realized that it was the evidence "backbone" to support the intuition behind their mission. BirthNetwork National is based on the MFCI, which outlines the principles of Mother-Friendly care in order to promote the safest, healthiest and most cost-effective maternity care. BirthNetwork National has evolved from one chapter in Southeast Michigan into a national organizationwith many chapters across the country. We are part of a growing movement of birth activists striving to bring peace and dignity to birth by helping empower women to make informed choices about their maternity care.

A birth doula provides uninterrupted emotional, physical, and informational support throughout labor. She helps the client develop a birth plan and meets with the birth team before labor. During labor, she provides support at home and/or in the hospital until a few hours after baby is born.

A postpartum doula comes to your home after the baby is born to support the new mom and new family.

Postpartum doulas are trained to assess for signs of postpartum depression.
