2021 - 2022

We are reimagining what community support care can be, a reimagining rooted in ancestral healing, anti-racism, gender expansive frameworks and rematriation.

We are reopening membership with a robust program envisioned, launching Skillshare recording sales and together,  relaunching our #everyondeservesadoula fundraising campaign as we build our capacity for reinstating full doula matching and SRJ service.

We are eager to embrace and root in a new structure of care work sustainability that centers our own thriving.

Let's build this together.

Everyone Deserves a Doula

Roots of Labor Birth Collective (RLBC) is committed to reproductive justice, and believes that everyone deserves a doula, regardless of one’s ability to pay. When you hire an RLBC doula, you are investing in the wellness of the greater Bay Area birthing community.

We partner with Santa Rita Jail and Bay Area clinics who serve low-income and Black, Indigenous and people of color communities (BIPOC). We offer compassionate physical, emotional, and informational support to those members of our community who are most vulnerable to systemic oppression.

When you choose to hire an RLBC doula, your decision to work with us provides quality doula care to all birthing people, including those who are incarcerated, immigrants (regardless of their documentation status), survivors, low-income, trans*, queer, and/or people with disabilities.

Our member space & skillshare replays are hosted on Collective & ROOTS member Ajira's platform.
Ajira offers her space in the spirit of collaboration and community.
