Pacific Birth Institute

– Birth Assistant Training Program –

We bring safe maternity care training into the homes of students across the world who are the next generation of home and birth center providers.

Right now, the United States is one of the wealthiest countries and yet it has some of the worst maternal and neonatal outcomes in the developed world. At the Pacific Birth Institute, we are committed to reducing the impact of the maternal mortality and physician crises on families by training the future community nurse and professional midwives and birth assistants in the safe and evidence-based routine and complication care management of community birth now. It is our mission to reduce mortality in birth in the USA by championing the training and education of 100,000 Professional Birth Assistants (Pro BAs) by 2050 to safely welcome the influx of families choosing to give birth out of the hospital.
