    Find a Birth Network

    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.

    If you know of a Birth Network not listed here, please contact us.  If there is no Birth Network in your area, consider starting your own Birth Network!

    To be listed on this site, Birth Networks must meet the following standards:

    • Not simply a referral service
    • 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)

    Not sure what a Birth Network really is?  Find out more about your local Birth Network.
