Affiliations & Community

DONA International

Lamaze International

Lamaze International is a non-profit organization, a trusted global leader, with a mission to advance safe and healthy pregnancy, birth and early parenting through evidence-based education and advocacy.

The Lamaze Vision is to be the trusted global leader in ensuring all parents make confident and informed decisions with the support and resources to have safe, healthy births.

Our goal is simple: We want all parents to feel confident, supported and powerful as they ask questions, make decisions, and navigate their path through pregnancy, birth and parenthood.

Spinning Babies

Spinning Babies® is a unique approach to birth created by midwife, Gail Tully.

Spinning Babies® offers a third perspective to the “natural vs. managed” childbirth today. In reality, we don’t pick all one or all the other. Technology and Nature aren’t teams in a sport to which we must be loyal. Medicine and Midwifery are professions developed to serve Nature when the body needs support.

So, rather than increasing technology or medication to help childbirth, we activate nature within the body by working with the body in new ways. We begin with physiology and move to interventions if and when needed.

The VBAC Link

At The VBAC Link, we have a deep passion for empowering parents and birth workers. Our goal is to make YOUR birth after Cesarean better, No matter how that looks. We understand and respect that VBAC is not the right way to give birth for everyone but hope to educate and empower you to have an active role in your pregnancy and birth experience.

We believe in making birth after Cesarean better by providing education, support, and a community of like minded people.
