Serving the communities of San Luis Obispo County and Northern Santa Barbara County.
Central Coast Childbirth Network surgió del deseo de conectarse. Un grupo de más de 60 profesionales inició una conversación en un foro privado y decidió que nuestra comunidad de nacimiento necesitaba crecer JUNTOS. Como profesionales y defensores del parto, queríamos una mayor conexión entre nosotros. Más importante aún, queríamos construir conexiones más sólidas con las familias de la Costa Central.
Sirviendo a familias en el condado de San Luis Obispo al norte del condado de Santa Bárbara y a todos los demás.
Aquí en Central Coast Childbirth Network, el apoyo a las familias desde preconcepción hasta el primer año de crianza de los hijos está a la vanguardia de nuestra misión y visión. Junto con nuestros miembros, proveedores y defensores, queremos crear programas y servicios que aumenten el acceso a los recursos, apoyen la toma de decisiones informada y mejoren la salud y el bienestar de nuestra comunidad.

Programs and Services
Professionals to Community "PtC"

The CCCN aims to connect professionals to the community through programs and events by reducing barriers to support and encouraging a deeper community experience. This program produces and distributes educational materials and infographics hosts the Expos, and leads the CCCN presence in community-based events. This program serves individuals and families on the Central Coast in person and virtually.
CCCN to Professionals "CtP"
This program has a focus to inform, educate and advocate for CCCN birth and wellness professionals who serve preconception through the first year of parenting clients. The CCCN aims to connect, support, and inspire these diverse professionals through membership benefits/services, and programs such as coffee and member connections, CCCN newsletter and podcast, and business/educational events such as inclusive language workshops, and mission, vision and/or values or tools workshops. This program serves birth and wellness professionals and CCCN members on the Central Coast in person and virtually.
This program is focused on student interns mainly from Cal Poly, who participate in the CtP and PtC programs to inform, educate and advocate for Central Coast families and professionals in preconception through the first year of parenting. The CCCN connects the interns to the community and birth and wellness professionals through shadowing opportunities, planning, and supporting programs & events, and reducing barriers to entry and awareness of different industries benefiting the community. Often these shadowing and deeper learning opportunities, highlight gaps in birth and wellness care in our community and we offer mentorship and support to understand what is being advocated for on a local, state, and federal level to reduce this and how they can make a difference in their professional and educational paths.
We offer individualized “Learn-by-Doing” opportunities, mentorship, mission, vision, values, and skills assessments to help them with their resumes, grad school applications, and continue their learning about themselves and where they fit into the professional realm in birth and wellness. This program serves the student's educational and personal needs to grow into the next generation of birth and wellness professionals to serve our community by valuing language, empathy, and shared experiences.
