DONA International Partners
DONA International proudly recognizes our partner organizations – the organizations that have missions that align with our own. Our strategic partners, Coalition for Improving Maternity Services (CIMS), Lamaze International, and Childbirth Connection (formerly Maternity Center Association-MCA), are making significant impact for better health outcomes for families.
Childbirth Connection, formerly Maternity Center Association, is a national not-for-profit organization that has been a leader in maternity care quality improvement since 1918. Their mission is to promote safe, effective and satisfying maternity care for all women and their families through research, education and advocacy.
The mission of Lamaze International is to promote, support and protect normal birth through education and advocacy. Lamaze International envisions for the future a world of confident women choosing normal birth.
Lamaze International believes that women who are fully informed, confident and supported will want normal birth. Lamaze International believes that caregivers should respect the birth process and not intervene without compelling medical indication.
Coalition For Improving Maternity Services
CIMS is a coalition of individuals and organizations with concern for the care and well-being of mothers, babies, and families. Its mission is to promote a wellness model of maternity care that will improve birth outcomes and substantially reduce costs.
