BirthLink was founded in 1996 by Jo Anne Lindberg, educator – entrepreneur – and Asian medicine practitioner. Our network has provided thousands of Chicago area birth referrals to guide parents’ efforts to build strong, healthy families. 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 Birth Options Consultations. There is more information on this service on our web site.
Keep in mind that I can refer you to services for people of all ages and stages. The wellness model for care considers the health concern and then matches it to the least intervention oriented type of practitioner.
Not sure how to do this? We can help in two ways.
Call to see if we can refer you to a practitioner or if you need a wellness consultation.
Our organization was supported through membership in the past. We are not taking new members or renewing memberships as we are winding down the membership part of the organization. Birth options consults and classes will be the main revenue going forward. BirthLink seeks to empower families to have healthier, happier births.
