Who is eligible to join?

Anyone who wants to help protect the natural rights of birthing families to enjoy the maximum possible safe options for where, and with whom, they give birth. Who might that be? Everyone, since birth is the one single experience that all people have in common, which serves as a pivotal event setting the tone for the life of each baby, and the well-being of each family. Parents who want more and safer options, midwives who want to protect and advance their profession, other health care providers who truly want to see the health of the next generation improved, students who desire greater levels of education and training opportunities, child advocates who want to see families have a greater opportunity to bond…in short – everyone who cares about the future. There is a membership option suitable for you, either as a professional, associate, supporter, donor, or sponsor for one of our educational events.
