Welcome to the Fresno Birth Collective - The central valley's ultimate resource for pregnancy, childbirth support, & postpartum care.
Fresno Doulas working together to improve and unify our birth community.
We are a diverse group of birth-workers and primarily represent multiple doulas in California's central valley.
Each of our Fresno doulas are professionally trained and running their own established and successful practices.
We also feature:
~placenta encapsulation specialists
~prenatal massage therapists
~ newborn photographers
~and so much more!
All members and featured partners of the collective are committed to working in harmony to supporting both each other and the families they serve.
Our community believes that each birth is as unique as each family and that diversity makes all of us stronger.

Fresno doulas with a BIG dream
Picture this ... two new friends getting to know each other while sitting outside sipping coffee and watching their kiddos run around and play. The conversation leads to "talking birth" (since they're both self admitted birth-nerds) and they realize they have nearly identical birth ethos and have experienced very similar opportunities within their local community. As the conversation continues an idea for something NEW emerges. What if instead of wishing that something bigger, better, more cohesive, less competitive and centered around mutual respect and cooperation existed they created it? What if there was a network of birth workers and women's health professionals who worked together? That little idea is exactly how The Fresno Birth Collective began.
"I decided to create the Fresno Birth Collective because I saw huge gaps in care in so many aspects of women's lives here in the valley. I truly believe that when Fresno doulas come together and pool our ideas and resources we have unlimited potential to improve birth outcomes for the lives of so many women."

"I decided to create the Fresno Birth Collective because I believe every woman in the central valley should have the support she desires and deserves. When birth professionals come together and support one another, we can better support families and that is an incredibly beautiful thing."
