Our vision is to develop an interdisciplinary research agenda among basic science, clinical, social, epidemiologic, and health services researchers that will catalyze research, training, and practice and policy aimed at promoting physiologic birth.

Interested in joining us? We welcome inquiries from faculty, early career researchers and learners who are conducting research related to the promotion of physiologic birth. We also welcome users of research, for example academic clinicians, and policy and decision-makers. 

We offer collaboration and networking with an international and interdisciplinary group of physiologic birth researchers, the opportunity to present or attend innovative webinars, activities and networking for trainees, and a profile of your work on our web pages and newsletter. Email us at
