The BELIEVE Team is working with mothers, birthing people and healthcare workers to learn how collaboration can help us to work together better. We want to make healthcare workers and healthcare systems safer and build trust between birthing people and healthcare workers. We want to understand how these complicated problems in the health system harm pregnant people and healthcare workers and we want to help fix them. 

The goal of all this work is to make the healthcare system better so that every birthing person and healthcare worker is treated with respect and care. Learn more and get involved:
