Founded in March 2018, the Maternal Safety Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization committed to patient safety, transparency and education.
The Maternal Safety Foundation's mission is to continuously improve the quality and safety of maternal health care in the United States.
The organization was founded with a vision of safe, accessible, risk-appropriate pregnancy and postpartum care for all and a goal of collaborating with the organizations and agencies working together to improve patient safety in maternity care.
This organization relies on an advisory board of subject matter experts in consumer-focused research in maternity care, quality improvement implementation, health policy and public health. The board meets bimonthly and is responsible for consulting on carrying out the mission while maintaining an ongoing focus on health equity.
