TeamBirth Description

TeamBirth is a care process innovation involving a series of team huddles between the patient and their care team, designed to empower each team member to contribute information, reliably structure communication, and help the team arrive at shared plans together. It focuses on eliciting the patient’s preferences, symptoms, and subjective experiences and integrates this with clinical data to inform patient care plans and promote safe, dignified childbirth care for every patient.
