The Northern California Birth Collective is a non-profit community organization dedicated to helping families find supportive care throughout their pregnancies.  We strive to join people together and improve the birthing experience through education.

We sponsor monthly educational nights and numerous other events including "Meet the Doula", a local International Cesarean Awareness Network (ICAN) chapter and much more.
