FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Fort Worth, Texas – June 13, 2017
In direct response to a call for action, Birth Texas has opened a Facebook discussion group, as well as removed the cost associated with their online resource guide. The newly formed Facebook Group, “Birth Texas – Discussion Group” will be open for the community. The group will be a resource for Texans in need to reach out to one another for free and low-cost resources as well as to support one another. In addition to the Facebook group, Birth Texas’ “find a pro” section will also undergo some changes.
“Now anybody can advertise their birth business in our online guide, and with the help of our new Facebook group those that need it most will have access to free resources in multiple places,” said Board Member Tiffany Carra. Once open the Facebook group will allow the community to talk openly about the issues surrounding birth in the entire state of Texas. Resources that are free to the community can be posted and shared to the group without restriction. Direct referrals from past clients will also be allowed. “We need to get people talking about what is going on in their community. We are hoping this group will raise awareness as well as connect people to the services they are needing,” said Carra.
Since 2010 Birth Texas’ flagship chapter, Birth Texas – Tarrant County Birth Network has produced a once a year print guide as well as an online guide provided as a perk of membership. Going forward these guides will exist but in forms much different than past versions. In June of 2017, Birth Texas removed the membership restriction from the online guide, “find a pro” resource guide on their website at: www.birthtexas.org/directory
