Our mission is to promote respectful maternity care by equipping the childbirth community with evidence-based resources.
Could a greater miracle take place than for us to look through each other’s eyes for an instant?
Henry David Thoreau
Of all the forms of inequality, injustice in health care is the most shocking and inhumane.
Martin Luther King Jr
Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
The circle traditionally represents wholeness, unity, balance, and the cycle of life. The three circles of our logo stand for the three aspects of evidence-based maternity care: the provider's expertise, the scientist's research, and the parent's values and preferences. All three should be given equal weight.
I keep thinking what a great class this was! Lindsey's enthusiasm and passion for the subject make her a natural teacher. I would feel so in the dark without having done this - it's easy as the husband to feel a little disconnected from the whole process of pregnancy and birth, so I appreciate how much more I understand everything now. I feel much better prepared to help. I wish this kind of education were the norm, and I hope that over time more and more people are able to make the kind of informed choices we've been prepared for.
We felt totally prepared going into our birth. The practices and exercises encourage you to discuss your priorities and really brought my husband into the process. Both he and I thought it was really nice to have that time together in a totally different context than we normally would. Lindsey's just plain awesome and you can tell that she's so, so passionate about what she does. She's extremely knowledgeable and approachable and makes it fun. We had an amazing drug free birth that resulted in the happiest, most alert baby we've ever seen!
I couldn't recommend Lindsey as a teacher enough. This class was a blast - we made friends and laughed a lot, but most importantly, we learned a ton. Even through a really difficult labor, my husband and I were prepared and able to make decisions based on our knowledge, instead of knee-jerk reactions to a scary/unfamiliar situation. I am so grateful to Lindsey for being such an excellent teacher. I truly don't know if I would've been able to have a natural childbirth without her!
