BirthMatters reduces teen pregnancy through reproductive health education and empowers expectant young adults to raise healthy families through doulas utilizing the community health worker model. There are various ways BirthMatters reaches the larger Spartanburg community through their mission with their programs Celebrating Families and Breastfeeding Friendly Businesses.

The Breastfeeding Friendly Business is an initiative that labels businesses around Spartanburg as breastfeeding-friendly. Both of these initiatives along with volunteering and fundraising events allow for the community to collaborate with BirthMatters in spreading awareness of reproductive health and family preparation with Spartanburg county.
