News Flash! AABC Foundation has received a $5,000 anonymous matching gift - so any donations made to the Birth Centers Rock Campaign before November 15, 2012 will be doubled! (up to a maximum of $5,000)
Why do we need more Birth Centers?
Shannon wants to give birth at a birth center, but her local birth center is so busy, they cannot take new clients right now.
Mikayla wants to go to a birth center, but the closest birth center is 150 miles away.
Anna would love to go to a birth center, but there are none in her state.
Rachael wants to go a birth center and have a midwife, but her health insurance won’t cover it.
Carla wants to go to a birth center, but her family thinks birth centers are dangerous and that she has lost her mind.
Jennifer has heard of birth centers and is curious, but most of her friends had cesarean sections and none of her friends had a natural birth.
The AABC birth center model is safe and strongly supported by clinical evidence.
Yet across the United States, less than 1% of childbearing families get to receive the extraordinary care of a birth center.
In order to ensure that every expecting mother has access to a birth center’s holistic, family-centered, evidence-based care, we need hundreds of new birth centers across the country.
This is the future we imagine …
Every expecting mother starting with a midwife at a birth center
Every family connecting at birth
Every community enjoying a birth center on main street
Please help us reach our $5,000 matching goal by November 15!
Your gift to grow more birth centers will go twice as far because of our matching gift.
Sponsored by the AABC Foundation in partnership with the American Association of Birth Centers.
