Welcome to the Birth Place Lab.

The Birth Place Lab, in the Division of Midwifery at the University of British Columbia, facilitates multi-disciplinary and community-based participatory research on high quality maternity health care across birth settings. Learn more here.

The Birth Place Lab is pleased to introduce The Access and Integration Maternity Care Mapping (AIMM) Study, which explores the relationship between access, integration, and density of midwives in the United States and key birth outcomes. You are invited to get an overview of the project here, review the key findings here, explore the maps yourself here and see how your state ranks here.

The Birth Place Lab also recently released tools to measure respectful maternity care. Click here to learn more.
