Partners of Oakland Birth + Wellness
At Oakland Birth + Wellness, we have created a gathering place for our community to come and be well. In our space, we offer comprehensive midwifery care, host support groups for growing families, and call in collaborators to offer their services.
We welcome perinatal professionals to teach classes, host events for artistic expression, lead movement, facilitate learning about newborn and child development, and we also rent out exam room space for complementary professions. If you are interested in using Oakland Birth + Wellness for your offering, please reach out.
Our location: 5735 Shattuck Avenue, Oakland, CA, 94609

Friday mornings from 10am-12pm any family with pre-crawling babies is welcome to come hang out and socialize. Drop-in style, come as you are. Tea and water are always available. Suggested donation of $1-10.

Bodywork for Babies Clinic
On the 1st Friday of each month, Anna Whalen offers her services in a donation-based clinic.
Anna is extensively trained in applying therapeutic touch to support infants with healthy development, digestion, breastfeeding, and birth recovery. Anna's approach is gentle, precise, and delicately attuned to each infant.
