BORN Collective 

At the root of our collective practice is belief. We believe that birth is transformative. We believe that birth is sacred and yours alone. We believe that birth is individual and connects us all. We believe in birthing families to make informed choices, the right choices for their body, their baby, and their birth. We believe in your right to be heard. We believe that the way our culture treats birth reflects the way we treat the human condition. We believe in you and your baby.



What is a Doula?

A doula is a trained birth professional who provides continuous, emotionally engaged support to birthgivers and their families throughout pregnancy, labor, and postpartum. A doula’s role draws on a model of birth wisdom traditionally provided by family members and community healers. For many this ancestral knowledge has been disbanded and disrupted by diaspora, generational dynamics, and the growing popularity of the medical model of birth.

As doulas we strive to support our clients in accessing their inner strength and connecting with their intuition while providing physical, emotional, and informational resources to support them on their individual journey. We empower people to connect with their baby and birth, advocate for themselves with informed choice, and prepare for the expansive possibilities that come with this life changing transition.



BORN Collective is a trio of experienced birth workers providing conscious, client-centered care to Bay Area families throughout the childbearing year and beyond.
