The Birthing Place (TBP) is an organization passionately committed to addressing the maternal health crisis in the United States by creating and implementing solutions and services to fulfill community needs throughout the reproductive lifespan, while actively taking steps to create a safe, serene, and deeply supportive birth center.
The 2018 NYS report on pregnancy-related deaths called 78% of all maternal deaths and 100% of deaths from hemorrhage, mental health conditions, and cardiomyopathy “preventable.” These startling statistics highlight the urgent need for improved maternal and infant care in our community.
NOW New York must  not only acknowledge our maternal health crisis but invest substantially in proven solutions.  The Birthing Place offers these solutions, with our team of exceptionally experienced BIPOC maternal health professionals and stakeholders in NYC - midwives, doulas, educators, and engaged organizations - working together to advance a maternity care system that centers and responds to the community. Our team of maternal health professionals, along with collaborative wellness providers, offer extensive reproductive health support to families in the Bronx, the poorest congressional district in New York City, to reduce maternal and infant stress and ensure family support well beyond what is traditionally available in hospitals. TBP is committed to build a lovingly-designed, supportive space for families who want safer, more holistic experiences of childbirth, through individualized prenatal, birth, and postnatal care.
Since 2020, The Birthing Place has taken intentional, critical steps to meet the needs of our community through comprehensive educational and wellness offerings: 
    • In 2022:  Womb Bus was launched! This mobile wellness hub and perinatal safe spot provides education, resources and support to families throughout many underserved Bronx neighborhoods.
    • In 2023, the core team of TBP’s medical practice came together. 
    • In 2024, Maryam, a clinical care center, was opened! A key milestone towards building a birth center! 
The Birthing Place’s exquisitely designed facility will offer personalized, comprehensive support for the planning, expectant, and newly blossomed family, providing:
    • Full Spectrum Midwifery and OB-GYN care - to include family planning and contraception, breast health, STI testing and treatment, menopause care, and additional health and wellness services 
    • Comprehensive Maternity care – including preconception and fertility counseling, prenatal care, family building and fertility counseling and services including IUI  
    • Postpartum care including lactation support, pelvic floor health and mental health services 
    • Newborn laboratory screening tests and lactation consultation services
    • Supplemental Bodywork including Acupuncture, Reiki, Yoga, and so much more 
Birth intersects with us all. Improving birth in NYC will have a profound positive impact on the health and wellbeing of all birthing people, their families,  and our future generations.
