“Pregnancy by Design uses research-based (also referred to as evidence-based) medical information to provide parents with the most valid, well-conducted and relevant research. This allows parents to make informed decisions regarding their pregnancy care that is best for their family, baby, and unique situation.” – Tara G.
“I gave birth to my second child just a little over a month ago and this course helped me achieve the natural birth I always wanted. After a bad birth experience with my first I knew I wanted something completely different. What I love about this course is that it was specific to my personality, my needs and even my fears. It was incredibly informative, clear and practical. I recommend it to any mom to be!!” – Catalina

We are proud to announce our first in a series of maternal health articles being featured on Samaritan Ministries website and member newsletter.
SM is a healthcare sharing ministry in which members take care others healthcare needs through the direct sharing of financial, emotional and spiritual support.
SM is supportive of physiologic birth, putting decisions about care into the hands of the patient. They do so by eliminating the constraints of in-network requirements so that members are free to birth where and with whom they feel most comfortable (whether at home, birthing center, or hospital under the care of a Doctor or a Midwife). SM is a shining example of how healthcare should be! We are excited to be working them in helping more families receive quality healthcare.
