About Us

North American midwives have been collecting strategic birth-related data for over 20 years. The service is open to all practicing midwives. Now, we are introducing more ways for our members to support the project.





First introduced as a paper-based research initiative focused on community-based births attended by midwives, the Midwives Alliance of North America (MANA) Stats project online data registry was developed by the MANA Division of Research, Harris-Braun Enterprises, and Bruce Ackerman in 2004. Relaunched in 2022, MSP continues the project mission to collects comprehensive data on birth and associated perinatal care outcomes. Data are intended to support research and practice with the goal of improving care for women and babies and increasing choices available to childbearing families. Midwives who consent to participate in the project can access the basic service at no cost and will immediately benefit from the professional services offered on the platform. These include:

  • Research-validated birth records
  • Comprehensive statistics
  • User management for practices and collaborations
