Who We Are

Families look a lot of different ways, and we want to make sure they’re all represented and celebrated at The Perinatal Foundation. We are working to build a board, staff, and community of supporters who will reflect and represent the wide diversity of families in Wisconsin.

Know someone who should serve on our board or think you’d be a great fit? Let us know. 

Our Board of Directors provides stewardship of the Foundation’s assets and sets our funding priorities. Our staff is shared with our partner organization, Wisconsin Association for Perinatal Care, and provides board and administrative support. We appreciate the expertise and guidance they offer in helping us ensure excellence in perinatal care.
