STATE RESOURCES

Across the nation, there are some amazing organizations, causes and businesses for women and families during pregnancy, birth, and postpartum. One of the steps to improving the maternity care and birth outcomes in the United States is to improve the transparency and recognition of the midwives, resources, organizations and services in each state or community.

I have found that most women don’t what their own community offers. This is a place to change that.
