The Friends of the San Francisco Birth Center (FOSFBC) is dedicated to ensuring that all Bay Area women have financial means available to plan out-of-hospital births and access high quality midwife-led prenatal and postpartum care at the San Francisco Birth Center. As a fiscally sponsored project of the Social Good Fund, FOSFBC is focused exclusively on fundraising and grant-making to cover the gap between what lower-income families can afford to pay, and what it actually costs the Birth Center to provide the full suite of prenatal, birth, and postpartum support services.  By making need-based grants available upon request, the Friends of the San Francisco Birth Center strives to guarantee that lower-income women seeking care at the Birth Center can have equal opportunity, access to community, and choices in care, just like their peers of greater means do.


Join the Friends Today

Birth is an opportunity to transcend. To rise above what we are accustomed to, reach deeper inside ourselves than we are familiar with, and to see not only what we are truly made of, but the strength we can access in and through birth.
— Marcie Macari
