The Truth About VBAC exposes the current challenges we face and why Maryland Families for Safe Birth is working so hard to make sure that all families have access to the birth options they deserve.

Unbreaking Birth is a must-see. Four million children are born in the United States each year. Pregnancy, birth, and the post-natal period are critical times in the life of a child, a new mother, and their family in terms of physical, mental, and emotional health.
