AABC Achievement Awards


Do you know someone who has championed birth centers and should be recognized for their contributions? Now is the time to make this happen. We are seeking nominations for the AABC Achievement Awards.

The awards honor those who are exemplary in their support of birth centers. You may want to nominate a writer who has given your birth center exceptional media coverage, a consumer who has contributed to the growth of birth centers in your community, a politician who has supported legislation for safe, quality care in birth centers, or a professional peer or collaborating physician who has labored hard in the birth center movement.

The AABC Achievements wards will be presented at the 2022 AABC Birth Institute, September 15-18, 2022 in San Diego, CA.

Nominations for achievement awards will be accepted in five categories: Professional (includes providers and administrators), Collaborating Physician, Public Advocate, Community, and Media.

Note: The professional category now includes administrators. Previously this award category was limited to practitioners.
