BirthWays is a volunteer run, non-profit organization that provides education and resources for pregnancy, birth and early parenting. Our services include classes, a newsletter, an online resource database, a birth and parenting resource center with a lending library of books and DVDs, a referral line and community events.  

BirthWays believes that pregnancy and birth are natural processes. Our mission is to educate women and families in the East Bay about choices and decisions they will face in pregnancy, birth, postpartum and parenting to help them have a safer and more satisfying birth and parenting experience. We strive to create a supportive environment that empowers women and families to make informed decisions that best reflect their own values.
