OBI supports vaginal births and safely reducing cesarean deliveries for            “low-risk” pregnancies in Michigan hospitals.



The Obstetric Initiative (OBI) is an interdisciplinary quality initiative led by healthcare providers dedicated to improving Women’s Health. OBI seeks to engage maternity care providers and hospitals in a collaborative effort to safely reduce the use of primary cesarean delivery and to improve health outcomes of Michigan women and infants. 

OBI provides a community of maternity providers, educational webinars, evidence-based resources, and actionable data to improve the quality of obstetric care for the women and families we serve. 

Join us as we work together to improve safe delivery practices across the state.
