JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Duling Hall in Jackson was to place to be Saturday for new and expectant mothers.

The Improving Birth Rally was held to bring awareness to the importance of maternity care.

Organizers wanted to gather all birth related organizations to change the face of the current state of maternity care. There was everything from activities for the little ones to prenatal yoga.

"Today's event is for the whole family, and our belief is that maternity care impacts the whole family not just mom," said Birth Justice attorney Jacqueline Hammack. "So it's something dads, siblings, the whole family should be concerned about."

This is the second year the event had been held.

It was hosted by Improvingbirth.org and the International Caesarean Awareness Network.
