BirthLink was founded in 1996 by Jo Anne Lindberg, educator – entrepreneur – and Asian medicine practitioner. Our network provided thousands of Chicago area birth referrals to guide parents’ efforts to build strong, healthy families. We now reach out to parents who want to learn more and need help finding midwives. Not all midwives have web sites so knowing where to look is important. Understanding how midwives are licensed and certified is also key. Remember midwives practice in hospitals, birth centers and homes.
BirthLink promotes the values of parents’ rights including undisturbed nonintervention-oriented childbirth, immediate uninterrupted infant bonding and long term breastfeeding and stay at home parenting. She provides childbirth information and promotes the midwifery model of care through Informed Birth Consultations. There is more information on this service on our web site.
