Hello CCCN Community! We are so excited to welcome you into 2022 as we are back with our first newsletter of the year! This year we have a year of fun and educational events planned for CCCN Members and Community. We will be publishing our CCCN Newsletter quarterly this year.

Thank you for taking the time to stay connected with CCCN. If you are new to our website, we welcome you! Our newsletter is a great way to get introduced to who we are, our mission, vision, programs and exciting community updates! We invite you to keep reading to learn more.

And if you are returning, thank you! We appreciate the support from our community members and #CCCNMembers.


We have so many exciting events planned for this new year, including the Central Coast Birth, Baby, Family & Wellness Expo on May 14th from10am-4pm at the Women's Club in Arroyo Grande. Hosted by Central Coast Childbirth Network, INC. Sponsored and funded by First 5 SLO County, Children's Resource and Referral of Santa Barbara County, Central Coast Breastfeeding Coalition and the City of Arroyo Grande. Check out our Expo webpage where you can learn more about this event and see vendors who will be there!

There are many ways you can support CCCN and this upcoming event with vendor and non-vendor opportunities.


Great news! We received two grants from @WalmartGiving to support our mission here at Central Coast Childbirth Network. At the CCCN, we believe that every individual and family should have access to diverse birth and wellness providers and resources on the Central Coast. By bringing education, respect, collaboration, and community spirit, we can make an impact today to create a brighter future.

This is a group effort, and everyone has a unique ability to make a difference. Thank you, Walmart Store # 2507 and #5659 in Santa Maria, for joining the movement! You’re proving that generosity can bring our community together in times of need. Together, we can ensure the CCCN mission: To provide a diverse network of birth and wellness professionals who are committed to inform, educate and advocate for the individual needs of Central Coast families from preconception through the first year of parenting.

Thank you, From all of us at the CCCN TEAM

The #CCCNTeam had the wonderful opportunity to join the South County Chambers luncheon last month as we listened to CCCN CFO/Treasurer, and Secretary Susannah Brown speak on behalf of Spokes for Nonprofits. Spokes has a tremendous presence for our organization and continues to be a great resource for our Board of Directors. We had a wonderful afternoon networking and connecting with local businesses. We are so proud of you Susannah 🎉🎉

We are grateful to share this opportunity with #CCCNInterns Morgan and Alana!
