The mission of Birth in the Know is to inspire birth workers and their clients to challenge and transform fear-based beliefs about childbirth, to produce better outcomes for mothers, babies and families.  We are committed to building relationships with individuals and organizations with the same mission.  We provide education through our courses online, live experiential workshops, and an educational board game, Down the Canal.
