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.
