Our Mission


Ohio Families for Safe Birth (OFSB) is a consumer-driven effort to create a statewide coalition of organizations, professionals and families promoting legislation and policies grounded in the Midwives Model of Care which support families'  access to safe, appropriate, evidence-based care during pregnancy, labor, delivery and postpartum. 

Our purposes are: 

  1. Supporting legislation that licenses Certified Professional Midwives (CPMs) in Ohio;
  2. Raising awareness and support for families choosing an out-of-hospital birth as a safe, appropriate option;
  3. Supporting safe family and baby initiatives in all birth settings.
