ASAC was formed in 1979 to help women and their families have better birth experiences. A positive and satisfying birth experience will help a women transition more easily into her role as a mother, bonding with her baby will be easier and she will have a better chance of avoiding postpartum depression. The cost to families and society are high when mothers are depressed and not functional. ASAC’s mandate is to educate women about childbirth, regardless of the caregiver and location of birth that they choose.
Birth Issues is ASAC’s biannual magazine, full of birth stories, birth and parenting information, health information for the whole family and much more. The magazine emphasizes choice, awareness, and a natural, healthful approach to these topics. It is unique in that it is the only magazine written by women for women, by consumers for consumers.
As a consumer-based, not-for-profit, volunteer-run organization, ASAC relies on donations and money raised through various fundraising methods. Funds are required to keep the Birth Issues magazine in print, and for their many other programs including lecture series, movie screenings, conferences, resource library, trade show displays, and play group.
