If you care about improving maternity care by increasing access to midwives in all birth settings (at home, in birth centers, and in hospitals), FAM deserves your donation. Since 2003 FAM has given more than $1,000,000 to projects in research, public policy, public education, international access, birth equity using the midwifery model of care.
Our supporters determine our grant making.
Birth Trustees know we need to fix our maternity care crisis. Our rates of maternal and infant mortality, cesarean sections, and unnecessary medical interventions must change. Greater integration of midwifery care in hospitals, birth centers, and at home is the solution.
You can join the Birth Trust with a minimum monthly contribution of $20 through PayPal. We will send you an electronic ballot every spring to vote on the best projects to advance midwifery. Please read about our past grantees to see where your money goes.
