One of the easiest ways to be a Birth Advocate is to become a Member of BirthNetwork National. Membership in our organization connects you to birth professionals and other advocates who are seeking to improve birth locally and nationally. Birth Professionals who join as members will be included in our national online Provider Directory. If there is a local chapter in your area, you may also be included in the local online and print directories (when applicable) unless we are notified otherwise. Parents and others in the community who believe in our mission and benefit from our services can join as a Birth Advocate to support the work we are doing.
BirthNetwork National is a non-profit organization that depends on memberships and the hard work of our volunteers to fulfill its mission. Please join us as we work to improve maternity care. All memberships and contributions to BirthNetwork National are tax-deductible under IRS Section 501(c)3.
