About Us

ExpectNY was created by Northeast Business Group on Health using a grant awarded by the New York State Health Foundation (NYSHealth). NEBGH worked closely with Every Mother Counts, Choices in Childbirth, Childbirth Connection and Ovia during the creation of the content and metrics.




NEBGH is an employer-led, multi-stakeholder coalition with a mission to empower members to drive excellence in health and achieve the highest value in healthcare delivery and consumer experience. NEBGH.org

Choices in Childbirth




Choices in Childbirth is a non-profit organization that works to ensure access to maternity care that is safe, healthy, equitable, and empowering. Our mission is to promote evidence-based, mother-friendly childbirth options through public education, advocacy, and innovative policy reform. ChoicesinChildbirth.org.


Every Mother Counts’ mission is to make pregnancy and childbirth safe for every mother, everywhere. We engage communities, thought leaders, and partners in efforts to achieve quality, respectful, and equitable maternity care for all. We educate the public about maternal health and invest in community-led programs to improve access to essential maternity care. everymothercounts.org

Childbirth Connection



Founded in 1918 as the Maternity Center Association, Childbirth Connection is now a core program of the National Partnership for Women & Families. For nearly 100 years, we have helped develop and advance many forms of care that are now critical components of the nation’s maternity care system. More recently, we launched a long-term program to promote evidence-based maternity care through policy and quality initiatives. We will continue working to improve and transform the nation’s maternity care system so that childbearing women and babies consistently receive high-quality, woman- and family-centered care. childbirthconnection.org
