The Evansville BirthNetwork promotes the awareness and availability of Mother-Friendly Maternity Care, based on the Mother-Friendly Childbirth Initiative. We do this by holding bi-monthly meetings and through various projects.
- Birth is a normal, healthy process, not an illness or disease.
- Empowering births can take place in birth centers, hospitals and homes.
- Women are entitled to complete and accurate information on their full range of options for pregnancy, birth, postpartum and breastfeeding.
- Women have a right to make health care decisions for themselves and their babies. This right includes Informed Consent as well as Informed Refusal.
We are an official chapter of BirthNetwork National, a 501c3 nonprofit organization.
