Birth Philosophy is a place to informally learn about, share, and discuss resources, books, films, media, articles, research and current events about comprehensive sexual education, birth control, family planning, birth, midwifery, childbirth education, doulas, perinatal mental health/postpartum depression and anxiety, breastfeeding/chestfeeding and related topics such as disparities in maternal, child and infant health, and public policy.

Our aim is to to provide a forum for study and exploration of the culture and politics of birth and breastfeeding in the US and beyond. Visitors are encouraged to comment and discuss current issues, policies and hot topics.

Being pregnant or planning a pregnancy is not required! Interested college students (or any 18-25 year olds) are encouraged to join the conversation. Birth professionals, maternal and child health researchers, clinicians, social workers, policy makers and advocates working to effect positive change for birth and maternity care are also welcome.
