Development & Research Intern Choices in Childbirth

Choices in Childbirth (CiC) envisions a world where every mother has access to maternity care that is safe, healthy, equitable, and empowering. Our mission is to improve maternity care by providing the public, especially childbearing women and their families, with the information necessary to make fully informed decisions relating to how, where, and with whom they will give birth. Our goal is to promote evidence-based mother-friendly childbirth options through public education, consumer advocacy, and pioneering policy reform efforts.

This is a wonderful opportunity for a candidate who is highly passionate about women’s health and wants to learn more about the field in addition to public health and non-profit operations. The intern will collaborate with all departments and focus on a range of projects, including longer-term and day to day/immediate tasks assigned by the team.
