BIRTH PROFESSIONALS EMPOWERING A HEALTHY BIRTH COMMUNITY THROUGH SUPPORT,SERVICE, EDUCATION AND ADVOCACY
First and foremost Indy Birth Alliance is a resource group for expecting mothers and families. We hold several community outreach events each year and are focused on creating a healthy birth community.
Our membership is comprised of birth workers ,Lactation Consultants, Birth Doulas, Placenta Encapsulation Specialists, Postpartum Doulas, Home Birth Assistants, Physical Therapists...and the list goes on!
A birth professional is first responsible to his or her client and then to her fellow workers. We support our clients through our birth work. We support other Indy Birth Alliance members through our words and actions.
Members are dedicated to help any family find services within the community, even when they cannot afford our services. We work toward serving the community at large by planning and/or attending fairs, educational events, conferences, as well as any other event that can aid in spreading our message.
The Indy Birth Alliance first works at educating ourselves, and then reaches out to educate the community around us. The main purpose of our meetings is to help birth professionals gain the skills and information to aid them in their successful pursuit of their work.
We work to bring our message of evidence-based birth choices to other professionals in any way that will help create a positive dialogue. As birth professionals, we will always advocate for our clients first and for our group or personal goals second.
