Chattanooga BirthNetwork is an official chapter of BirthNetwork National, a 501c3 nonprofit organization.
We strive to bring awareness and education to the local Chattanooga community based on the Mother-Friendly Childbirth Initiative (MFCI). “This evidence-based mother-, baby-, and family-friendly model focuses on prevention and wellness as the alternatives to high-cost screening, diagnosis, and treatment programs.”
We believe all mothers, babies and families deserve respect during pregnancy, birth and postpartum period. This includes being told accurate information about the benefits and risks of all care, with the right to informed consent and informed refusal.
Birth is a natural and normal process that does not have to be scary. When supported and respected, birth can be a beautiful and empowering experience for all involved!
