Childbirth Care

With multidisciplinary teams at over 70 hospitals, The Obstetrics Initiative (OBI) is changing the culture of healthcare, advancing equity, and improving outcomes for all after childbirth in Michigan.

What We Do

Data-Driven Insights

Rich, clinically-credible data inform and motivate QI initiatives

Quality Improvement Tools

Evidence-based resources to accelerate clinical practice change

Hospital Support

Personalized, one-on-one support when member hospitals need it most

Community Connections

Semiannual meetings, webinars, workgroups, and committees foster trust and collective problem-solving

The support our hospital system has received from OBI has had a dramatic impact on our maternity care. We have been able to track interventions, and then watch the transformation unfold in our data.
