Learn more about implementing TeamBirth


Washington State Hospital Association is proud to introduce a collaboration with Ariadne Labs’ Delivery Decisions Initiative to implement TeamBirth across Washington State birthing hospitals. This work would not be possible without funding provided by Ballmer Group.

Failures in teamwork and communication are frequently reported as root causes of sentinel events. TeamBirth aims to target poor maternal and newborn outcomes that occur as a result of those failures by providing a framework for shared-decision making and amplifying the birthing person’s voice. Shared planning boards, TeamBirth huddles and utilization of decision and support aids help to provide all team members, including the patient, an opportunity to participate equally.


Over the next three years, Washington State birthing hospitals will participate in one of four cohorts. Each cohort will receive personalized training, support and materials for implementation in their facility.
