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 provides both group and private childbirth education classes for women and their families in NYC's five boroughs and labor support in Manhattan, Queens, and Brooklyn. 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, Birth Matters exists to equip women with the evidence-based information needed toward birthing with confidence and making informed decisions in pregnancy, labor, birth and beyond.
