Your Mission Should You Choose to Accept it is to
Become a Healthy Birth Warrior and Help Make Birth Safer for All.

What is a Healthy Birth Warrior?

The term "warrior" is often associated with images of power, confidence, accomplishment, honor and integrity.

  • They are disciplined and arm themselves with the tools they will need for battle.
  • They develop mental focus. No one can develop essential skills of dealing with life, protecting one's self or facing a foreboding opponent with an unfocused mind.
  • They develop an attitude of persistence. They have to face difficulty, pain, discomfort, discouragement, fear and the prospect of failure without quitting.
  • They train both mentally and physically to have greater wisdom and strength

All of these traits apply to a Healthy Birth Warrior as well.


A Healthy Birth Warrior comes in many forms.

  • You are pregnant and gathering information to be better informed about your upcoming birth.
  • You are someone who supports pregnant families like a doula, childbirth educator, acupuncturist, chiropractor or yoga instructor.
  • You are a midwife, doctor or nurse.
  • You are a facility administrator.

There is a common thread running strong through us all: We believe in a pregnant persons right to autonomy, their right to respect and dignity during childbirth and their right to informed consent and right of refusal. We also believe that deeply embedded and outdated practice patterns need to be a thing of the past and that together we hold the power to make that happen.
