Why Mothers & Babies First?  

Over time, it seems that we have lost our way in supporting new families. As health care becomes more of a profit driven business, the well being and care of new mothers and their babies are not necessarily the first priority at many birth facilities. In fact, instead of the United States having the best outcomes and the lowest maternal and infant mortality rates, we rank far below most other countries in the world. 

Mothers & Babies First advocates for the improvement of maternity care 
as well as the empowerment of women in their journey to motherhood,
