© 2008 BirthNet
BirthNet organizes events for a wide variety of audiences covering a broad range of topics.
Our goal is both to educate the general community about pregnancy and birth as normal, natural events and to provide specific information families can use to make informed choices about their maternity care. BirthNet has sponsored presentations by renowned speakers in the field of maternity care, convened gatherings of maternity-care consumers to discuss current issues, presented birth videos and information to college classes, participated in conferences, and more. Below is a listing of upcoming events as well as all of the events BirthNet has sponsored to date.
