“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed citizens can change the world;
Indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.”
– Anthropologist, Margaret Mead

Our Mission: To promote equal access to evidence-based maternity care during pregnancy, birth, and the postpartum period in our State and beyond. We believe this access is a human right. We aim to promote good outcomes for mothers, babies, and families, and the larger social system they exist within. The Iowa Birth Organization works to connect individuals, businesses, and other organizations in order to provide information and support resources.

There is significant evidence to suggest that there is a need for social change when it comes to how birth is conducted in this Country. It is our intent to sow those seeds of change.


We are a grassroots volunteer run organization. Any financial support you provide helps us continue to reach out to families in our state and help make a positive impact in their lives. We are grateful for your thoughtful consideration.
