Our Mission


Support, Educate, Care & respect

Birthworkers of Central Ohio is a non-profit organization committed to supporting families through education, community outreach, and professional services offered to expectant parents and parents of newborns. The BWCO referral network is comprised of a diverse group of birth professionals including doulas, childbirth educators, lactation consultants, massage therapists and others who provide high-quality services that integrate the needs of the whole family. We abide by the principles of the Mother-Friendly Childbirth Initiative(CIMS). To that end, the birth professionals who make up our network are committed to:

- approaching pregnancy and birth as a healthy, natural process;

- providing birthing families with supportive, respectful care; and

- empowering women to make informed decisions about their care during pregnancy and after their baby is born.
