Below are all of the known Birth Networks, listed by state. Birth Networks operate independently of Lamaze International. They address the issues that most affect the communities they serve. New Birth Networks are forming all the time.

  • Promotes the Mother-Friendly Childbirth Initiative and the Lamaze Healthy Birth Practices
  • Offers education and support to the public
  • Has some form of internet contact (e-mail address or Web site)
