The meeting that was scheduled for today with the Beverly Hospital officials has been postponed until the 15th of December. The goals for the meeting is to learn as much as possible as to why the hospital is considering closing the Birth Center and to encourage the hospital to take advantage of the different opportunities available that might aid them in keeping the Birth Center open, e.g., meeting with a representative from the American Association of Birth Centers for ideas on how to keep the Center open, considering participating in community fundraisers and/or grant writing.

Thus, for the next two weeks, we are continuing to collect research about how to support Birth Centers, information on Birth Center liability, and on ideas of ways to support our Birth Center here on the North Shore. Send your ideas, research, and/or information to To join the NSBC research email discussion list (an excellent way to stay up to date on everything that is happening!), send an email to with “NSBC Research List” in the subject to request an invitation.

Help us reach our goal of 1000 signatures (or beyond!) before our meeting on Dec 15th with Dr Ramini, the Interim CEO, and Chip Payson, the Vice President by signing this petition. And then please send a message to your friends asking them to sign too!

Do you know someone who could serve on the new steering committee? Nominate yourself or someone else you know! Send the nominee’s name and phone number and/or email address to Nominations are being accepted until Friday Dec 5th. Nominees will hear from the elections committee over the weekend and will have the opportunity to accept or deny the nomination. If the nomination is accepted, the nominee will be required to provide a brief bio and description of their vision/goal for the Birth Center. The date and location of the election will be posted soon!

Thanks again everyone for all your hard work so far! We are making a difference, let’s keep it going!
