We all have a role to play in supporting growing families

Each day in the United States:


families welcome a new baby


pregnant people hope for a safe, supportive, empowering birth experience


parents hope their children have the opportunity to thrive

Our Mission

To elevate our shared expectations of the care and support people deserve when they are growing their family.


In this video series hosted by Dr. Neel Shah, we highlight the realities that birthing people face. The people most affected by the injustices of the existing system share their experiences with those working to create change.

Dr. Shah reflects on his experiences as an obstetrician and an advocate in these letters and articles.


Diverse stakeholders across maternal and child health share their voices through narratives and interviews.
