Support our Work

The Marin Family Birth Center provides excellence in midwifery and perinatal care for all women. Our staff has decades of experience in providing families with a safe birth in a beautiful home-like setting.


We are also part of an innovative health care model that is making important strides in reducing disparities that Black mothers face in the U.S. Did you know that an African American ​woman is nearly four times more likely than a White or Latina woman to loose her life, or her baby's, in the 12 months around childbirth? African women who come to the U.S. experience maternal health outcomes comparable to White women, but their daughters will face this same disparity, regardless of socio-economic status. Lack of access to quality maternal healthcare, often because of race, plays a role.

MFBC is one of a handful of birth centers across the country partnered with a Federally Qualified Health Clinic (FQHC). We are a nonprofit organization (part of Marin City Health & Wellness Center, federal tax ID  06-1787661), committed to quality care and health equity. Please support our work with a tax-deductible donation!

“What a wonderful concept and a great organization...You will be a tremendous resource to your community! We (Bili Blanket Baby, LLC) are excited to work with you keeping newborns safe!”

"We decided that at a birth center we'd have more control over the birth experience than at the hospital...Kiki asked us in our first conversation why we wouldn't want a home birth as she pointed out that a birth-center birth is basically a home birth, just not in your home. Which is exactly what we wanted”
