Rally to Improve Birth

  • Lykes-Gaslight Square Park 410 N Franklin St Tampa, FL 33602 (map)

This Labor Day join Improving Birth and the Community Roots Collective at the 2016 Rally to Improve Birth! 

We are rallying to bring awareness to a problem and a solution. Many people are unaware that the US maternity care system is in crisis and just how much room for improvement there is: of how much of a gap there is between “routine” or typical care and care that is based on scientific evidence and known best practices. So many women are unaware that respect and compassion in childbirth aren’t just luxuries; they’re a human right. We are taking those messages to the streets, to the general public. Because we are the solution–-the mothers and families whose business drives the maternity care system.

This event will include tables of professionals exhibiting and educating about their products and services, raffles and give-aways, free goodie bags on a first-come first-serve basis, kids' activities and more! Join us!

If you are interested in becoming a sponsor or vendor or would like to donate an item for our raffle/giveaway, please visit our fundraising page at or email 

The Rally to Improve Birth is an awareness campaign but it’s also the annual signature fundraising event for The money raised as part of the Rally is used to support the ImprovingBirth mission and promote ImprovingBirth strategic initiatives throughout the year.
