Zuzana Stromerov is transforming the birthing process from the expensive hospital model to a more personally tailored residential model that affords choice and greater comfort to mothers and families.

About Project

Solution: What is the proposed solution? Please be specific!

Zuzana is instituting radical changes in the birthing process, affecting the relationship between mothers-to-be and obstetricians and public attitudes about pregnancy in general. As a result of Zuzana's work, pregnant women's perception of childbirth is shifting from one of risk, endangerment, and passivity to one of ownership and empowerment. Zuzana uses a model "birth house" as a means of promoting best practices in obstetrics, focused on full-care and family participation in the pregnancy, birth, and postpartum periods of the mother and child's life cycle.
