Welcome to the Revolution!

Informed Birth Preparation begins here.

Whether you are heading off on your own Journey or supporting others as they navigate the modern maternity landscape, The Birth Map boldly goes where no birth plan has gone before.
Created by Catherine Bell, this website serves as a hub of research, support and opportunity.
The process of creating a Birth Map is called Birth Cartography®. Birth workers can train in the way of the Birth Cartographer, and very soon parents-to-be will be able to participate in Mapping Your Birth and Beyond.
