Overall, women in America think the quality of maternity care is good. (According to Listening to Mothers III Key Findings) However, mothers are increasingly aware of media attention over the last twelve months highlighting the high rate of maternal death in the US. A rate higher than any other high-income country in the world, yet the US spends more money on maternity care than any other country and experiences worse outcomes. It is estimated 700 women die each year from childbirth related events, and over 50,000 women per year experience a near miss event. Consumer awareness about this growing crisis should not scare women and families, but activate those considering growing their family to learn about many issues that contribute to poor outcomes.
Grow Midwives is committed to educating consumers to engage in their care, and make best choices for their provider, place of birth, and engagement before, during and after childbirth. We are committed to education through free distribution of infographics and resources to guide learning. We are also nationally renowned speakers, willing to speak at venues that you believe could advance the role of safety, quality and improved outcomes in maternity care, particularly by scaling up midwifery.
