Pacifica Family Fund
Improving access to midwifery care
ABOUT PACIFICA FAMILY FUND
The Pacifica Family Fund [PFF] was established in 2017 to facilitate what has always been part of the Pacifica Family Maternity Center's [PFMC] guiding principles. Since the very first birth at PFMC in 2012, the midwives have sought opportunities to provide sliding scale fee structures for families who needed it most. PFF enables current and past clients of the birth center, as well as community partners to join in supporting the midwives as they provide both education and care for the diverse populations of the Bay Area.
Our vision is a world where all people have excellent and equal perinatal health outcomes. In our community, we envision a future where all Bay Area families, regardless of socioeconomic status, have access to safe, respectful midwifery care at Pacifica Family Maternity Center.
The mission of Pacifica Family Fund is to provide those who face financial barriers access to education about birth choices, midwifery care, and community support at Pacifica Family Maternity Center.
PFF strives to deliver equal access and information for pregnant persons and families of the Bay Area with diverse socioeconomic status to receive safe, supportive perinatal health care and midwifery services. We prioritize underserved populations who may face societal barriers including: people of color, teenagers, those with low-income, single parents and trans/gender nonconforming people. PFF is focused on fundraising and grant-making to provide sliding scale support for lower-income families to access the full spectrum of prenatal, birth, postpartum and newborn care at Pacifica Family Maternity Center.
