About the Organisation

Organisation Name : Birth for Humankind

Established in 2014, Birth for Humankind is a not-for-profit organisation that exists to address a gap in the maternal health system whereby women experiencing socio-economic disadvantage are often journeying through pregnancy and labour alone, under-prepared and confused about their choices. This leads to poorer birth experiences and outcomes. Birth for Humankind exists to help close this gap and ensure all women, regardless of their socio-economic circumstances, have access to support, education and care during their pregnancy, birth and early parenting.

We do this through offering free one-to-one birth and early parenting support, education programs, and information, networking, referrals to other support services and advocacy. Informed decisions, loving care and continuous support can help to reduce birth complications and support more positive birth outcomes for mothers and babies.
