Commonsense Childbirth Inc. (CSC) 501(c) 3 non-profit organization was founded in 1998 by Jennie Joseph who has dedicated her life to helping women and families have better birth experiences. Over the years Jennie’s work has grown beyond the birth room. She speaks nationally and internationally sharing her positive outcomes on low birth weight, prematurity, infant mortality, and maternal mortality rates that remain particularly high in minority and disenfranchised populations in the United States.
We believe that all women deserve a healthy pregnancy, birth and baby!
Our mission is to inspire change in maternal child health care systems worldwide; to re-empower the birthing mother, father, family and community by supporting the providers, practitioners and agencies that are charged with their care.
“When the front desk operates as an ‘open-door triage’ there is no barrier to prenatal care. You are eligible for all services simply because you are pregnant and you have expressed a need. NO ONE IS TURNED AWAY regardless of ability to pay” ~ Jennie Joseph, Executive Director
