A Global Network of Midwifery Centers

collaborating to provide respectful care and optimal health outcomes in resource poor communities

GoodBirth is an advocacy and educational network of birth centers in resource poor settings. The centers support each other to bring high-quality care to women and infants who are unserved by government and private healthcare services. Most centers are community-based and midwifery-led. Their goal is to improve both quality of care and women’s experience of care. Since 2016, the GoodBirth Network has been defining best practices and models of care to provide respectful care and optimal health outcomes for women and infants in the most challenging social contexts.
