1. Developing Birth Centers on a Journey

This week we highlight a few of AABC's Developing Birth Center Members as they work to pioneer birth centers in their communities.

Seven Sisters Midwifery & Community Birth Center (Florence, MA) is working to open the first midwife-owned birth center in Massachusets. Located in western Massachusetts they want to provide families of the Pioneer Valley the option of birth center care. Check out their YouTube channel for great videos on the birth center experience and midwifery care, and follow them on Facebook to keep up with their progress.

Birth Detroit (Detroit, MI) is a team of midwives, doulas, entrepreneurs, and birth and public health advocates working to open Detroit's first birth center. They won top prize at Bumble Bizz and Detroit Grows Women's Entrepreneurship grant competition. And, just this month they held a successful Launch and Learn event.  Stay up to date with their latest news - visit BirthDetroit.com and sign-up to receive their newsletters and/or follow them on Facebook.

CHOICES Memphis Center for Reproductive Health (Memphis, TN) is building a state-of-the-art reproductive health center that will include the first midwifery birth center in the city. In August they were featured on the television show "Full Frontal with Samantha Bee" where they gave a tour of their new healthcare center and talked reproductive health and reproductive justice. Follow them on Facebook or visit MemphisChoices.org to learn more.

 

2. Birth Centers Earn CABC Re-Accreditation

Congratulations to these AABC member birth centers who have achieved re-accreditation by the Commission for the Accreditation of Birth Centers (CABC).

 

3. Birth Centers Build Relationships with Community Drills

Quarterly drills for emergencies are an important part of a birth center's continuous quality improvement improvement (CQI) program.  They are also an excellent opportunity to build relationships with first responders in your community to assure a seamless transfer of care for birth center families.
