    2023 Impact Report

    Reflect on another year of transformation and growth with the Birth Center Equity 2023 Impact Report, where our bold and thoughtful strides towards a just and inclusive birth care system are described and celebrated. Over the past year, we’ve taken significant steps forward, infusing $1.1 million into community birth centers.

    We’re proud of our collective accomplishments, including the launch of Birth Center Week, which significantly raised the profile and understanding of community birth centers as safe, culturally-reverent, and midwifery-led spaces. Through the powerful efforts of our network, we’re not just witnessing change—we’re driving it, fostering a future in which we continue to grow birth centers, nurture community connections, and create thriving futures for families.
