- Tracking research and monitoring outcomes and measures related to childbirth education in an annotated bibliography
- Identifying data sources for childbirth education researchers
- Partnering with other groups and individual researchers who are making headway in improving childbirth and maternal outcomes such as Childbirth Connection, the California Quality Initiative, and the March of Dimes
- Collaborating with hospitals (i.e., Magnet designated), academic institutions (i.e. schools of nursing, midwifery, advanced practice nursing, public health, social work, physical therapy) to promote research into childbirth education research topics
