Local support prevents immediate closure of MA Birth Center, for now

Community members' efforts to preserve the more than 20-year old option of birthing at the North Shore Birth Center (NSBC) are paying off.

Last week, while the Board of Trustees of the Northeast Health Corporation considered closing NTSB nearly 200 people rallied in the bitter cold advocating for the birth center’s future. All major Boston TV stations, newspapers and radio stations covered the rally. The Trustees have decided to deliberate further. To learn more and to offer words of support, check out The Campaign to Save the North Shore Birth Center.

Here’s hoping NSBC remains in service and that Massachusetts women continue to benefit from the option that Lane County women enjoy: birthing in a home-like setting in proximity to an affiliated hospital.
