About us

We are a group of dedicated birth professionals formed Bay Area Birth Information with the vision of creating a stronger community of support and education for birthing families in the San Francisco Bay Area. With a network of providers in the Silicon Valley and Peninsula — reaching from Morgan Hill to Burlingame — BABI provides a centralized resource, making it easy for Bay Area parents to learn how to have a healthy and positive birth experience. BABI is the only non-profit, non-affiliated pregnancy and parenting resource of its kind  in the South Bay and Peninsula.



Our Mision

Bay Area Birth Information (BABI) promotes awareness of informed choice and evidence-based care in order to reduce unnecessary birth interventions, improve breastfeeding success rates, and preserve healthy mother/baby/family attachments.  

BABI’s mission is based on the Coalition for Improving Maternity Services (CIMS), a nationwide effort to promote healthy, natural childbirth.

BABI is a labor of love. Each member of our team, from the Board of Directors to the webmaster, volunteers their time and our supporting membership includes parents, providers, and concerned community members.   


BABI Board of Directors



Stephanie Freeman

President


Stephanie began her career in the birth world by becoming a LLL Leader when her daughters were babies.  Realizing that the most rebellious thing is to empower people through education, she went full on rogue and became a Certified Childbirth Educator as well as a Doula.  Now she rounds out her support to families by also encapsulating placentas.  Making sure that families understand and have awareness around their choices in the world is a subject that she passionate about!



Nicole Reginelli

Secretary/Treasurer


Nicole is a Birth and Postpartum Doula and Lamaze Certified Childbirth Educator. After moving to the Bay Area, she spent eight years working for a large woman-owned design firm in Mountain View. In 2010 her first son was born and her world changed forever. A deep passion for supporting mothers through pregnancy and birth took root! In 2015, after five years of being part of the birth community in the South Bay, her family moved to South San Francisco. She is excited to help expand BABI’s influence and build a stronger network among birth workers on the Peninsula -- to better support each other and the families they serve!




Roxane Thompson


Roxane is a Birth and Postpartum Doula focused on the success of every birth vision and desire. She’s earned a degree in Natural Health; is a Reiki master and continues coursework in Epigenetics and Microbiomes. Her knowledge of acupressure, aromatherapy, feng shui, plus a spirit of love adds to her experienced support for the birth mother and her family. With a career background in non-profits, she brings a depth of management and professional support to BABI. She also has given birth to four dynamic children and is a very engaged grandmother of seven.




Carrey Ward

General Board Member

Carrey is a Birth Doula and Certified Childbirth Educator. She found her passion for birth work in 2013 after the birth of her first daughter and decided to leave the corporate world and become a doula. She believes that every birthing person should be treated with love and respect and have the information to make the decisions that are right for their family. She enjoys playing with her two daughters, sewing, and all things Disney.
