Whether you’ve lived in NYC for years or just arrived, it can be daunting to process having a baby in the context of the big city. Birth Matters NYC is here to help smooth the transition, building foundations for parenting with confidence.

Birth Matters NYC provides childbirth education classes and labor support for women and their families in NYC's five boroughs. It is our belief that every woman deserves a safe, respectful and fulfilling birth experience. Most women can have a healthy, natural, intervention-free birth if they desire and plan for it. With the philosophy that--just as every woman is beautifully unique--there is no one "right" way to give birth, we exist to equip women with the evidence-based information needed toward birthing with confidence and making informed decisions in pregnancy, labor, birth and beyond.
