Four million children are born in the United States each year. Pregnancy, birth, and the post-natal period are critical times in the life of a child, a new mother, and their family in terms of physical, mental, and emotional health. Childbirth outcomes thus have tremendous public health consequences. Join us in trying to understand what's gone wrong and how we can fix it.
UnBreaking Birth is a collaborative project of Maryland Families for Safe Birth and Unbreakingbirth.org.
