It matters how we give birth and how we are born. Birth matters.
Women deserve care that protects their physical and emotional integrity; care that ensures not just the birth of a healthy baby, but also fosters pregnancy, birth and parenting experiences that are conscious, satisfying, and memorable.
We value both the individuality and diversity of women and recognize that each woman's experience of pregnancy, labor and birth is hers’ alone. Birth is normal. Nurturing the intrinsic normalcy of birth is important in recognizing that each woman and baby has parameters of well-being unique unto themselves.
