Our Mission and Creed
We are a non-profit resource network comprised of Southern Nevada providers who offer
FREE monthly meetings promoting choices in pregnancy, birthing, parenting, and beyond. Our mission is to provide women
and families with the information they need to feel empowered about their birth year. We promote a high level of care
and encourage…Education, Support &Informed choice.
Birth Year Network or BYN was conceived in a small library room in Henderson, NV in December 2002 by several women involved
in the birthing community. The idea of BYN was to bring together professionals associated with the birthing year that also
believed in informed consent and informed choice. The founding members spent 6 months planning the next move and in June 2003
Birth Year Network gave life to their first monthly meeting at the Summerlin Library. As the word spread the people came and
learned about their birthing and parenting choices. Today BYN has grown to over 35 members which include midwives, doulas,
childbirth educators, chiropractors, lactation consultants, massage therapists, essential oil specialists, and Photographers,
just to name a few. Meeting topics cover ‘Holistic Care for your Baby’, ‘To Induce or Not to Induce’,
‘Birthing Without Drugs’ plus postpartum and breastfeeding information. These events would not be possible without
the support of our community, our members who volunteer their time to help you in your Birth Year decisions, and the generous
donations given by our guests. If you are trying to conceive, pregnant or a new mom/family, please visit us at one of
our monthly meetings.
You’ll be glad you did!
