Dar a luz is the Spanish phrase for giving birth. The literal translation means "to bring to the light." We chose this name for its two meanings because Dar a Luz Network is about pregnancy, birth and early parenting, and also about bringing new light to our often unconscious ideas about these topics.
Because pregnancy and birth have the potential to be such powerful and life-changing events for women and their families, we believe every woman deserves access to the broadest range of evidence-based information and unconditional support in the choices she makes for her pregnancy and birth.
Dar a Luz Network does not promote a specific style of birthing or parenting. Our mottos are simple: "PRO INFORMATION" and "PRO SUPPORT."
If you are looking for information or support, we invite you to explore our website, especially our Pregnancy/Birthing Info page, join us at a local meeting (to find a Chapter near you, please go to Locate a Chapter), or call us with any questions or concerns (845-282-0177).

We would love to include one of your birth stories on our birth story blog! We include ALL types of birth stories and also welcome pictures. If you would like to share yours, or just want to be inspired by some wonderful stories, please visit WeBirth.
