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.
