December 2021: Central Coast Childbirth Network Newsletter

We are always so thankful to connect with YOU, our CCCN Members and local community members.


Wishing you and your family a wonderful holiday from the CCCN Team. We've made it! Our 12th and final newsletter of 2021!

In 2022, we are looking ahead to an eventful and connected year! Moving forward we will continue Coffee Connection, #CCCNMember Connections, a Central Coast Expo, Professionals' event series, and next CCCN Board of Director election.

It has been a 🎁 to serve families and birth and wellness professionals on the Central Coast alongside and in collaboration with community partners, #cccnmembers, volunteers, and interns.

It has also been a 🎁 to receive the support of service, in-kind donations and financial contributions to grow and strengthen our Mission and impact here at CCCN.

Thank you for taking the time to stay connected with CCCN. Join us in the Spring for our next publication. Stay connected with us through our social media pages and website.


Thank you for supporting CCCN on Giving Tuesday! Because of generous members, businesses, neighbors, friends and family, we were able to raise over $3,600 towards the $20,000 we need to fully fund our programs in 2022. YAY! We are so grateful for the kindness and community spirit.

As a nonprofit, we rely on generosity, donations, and volunteerism to lead and operate the CCCN including hundreds of hours from unpaid student interns. Contact us to find out ways to continue giving year-round. Email:
