The Pregnancy Project is a constellation of providers based in New York’s Capital District, offering a wide variety of services to pre-pregnant, pregnant, and postpartum women, their babies and families. We represent the best in our respective fields, and we are made up of devoted individuals who have a sincere interest in educating the area’s families on the many local services available to them.
Our vision is to promote the awareness and availability of Mother-Friendly maternity care and holistic birth and baby services in the Capital Region. To facilitate this vision, we created this website to help women and families find birth professionals that believe in the normalcy of the birthing process and who empower families with knowledge so that they can make educated decisions about their care.
The Pregnancy Project was established in 2009. In 2012 we grew to become and all encompassing group of dedicated professionals that support mothers, babies, and families during the prenatal, birth and postpartum period.
Preparing for motherhood is a powerful endeavor that transforms lives. The contemplation of conception, the expectant days of pregnancy, the labor of birth, and the adjustments of the postpartum period are all milestone events in the continuum of life. These experiences profoundly affect women, babies, fathers, and families, and have important and long-lasting effects on society.
The Pregnancy Project mission is to help families find the services and birth professionals that believe in the physiological birthing process and who empower families with knowledge so that they can make educated decisions about their care during pregnancy and beyond.
Empowerment & Normalcy of Birth
• Childbirth is a normal, natural and healthy process—NOT always a medical event.
• Women’s bodies are made to grow babies and give birth.
• Both women and babies have the inherent wisdom necessary for birth.
• Birth can safely take place in hospitals, birth centers, and homes.
A woman’s confidence and ability to give birth and to care for her baby is enhanced or diminished by every person who gives her care, and by the environment in which she gives birth. Finding and choosing the right provider can impact the entire experience and outcome.
