Long Island BirthNetwork
Serving Suffolk and Nassau Counties
We at Long Island BirthNetwork find this unacceptable. Every birthing woman and her family need to know that there is a large and growing community of people and caregivers who support a woman’s right to the birth she desires. There are also a wide range of care options for pregnant or birthing women and their families.
Long Island is one of the most educated and affluent populations in the United States. At the same time, Long Island claims some of the highest rates of births with interventions and/or augmentations, as well as extended stays in Neonatal Intensive Care Units and postpartum depression.
The Long Island BirthNetwork is working to help make these options well known and widely available. With a desire to bring advocacy, education, and support to our local community, the Long Island Chapter of BirthNetwork National (est. October of 2010) plans to bring educational classes, networking opportunities for consumers and local providers, organize fundraising events and publish an annual provider directory.
