March 2023 - We Care Wednesday

The vision for Neighborhood Birth Center (NBC) is rooted in the belief that people should have access to a full range of pregnancy care and birthing options.

Most businesses do a discount code, we chose to donate 5% of the sale to the We Care Wednesday fund,...

Can't believe we are in the final month of 2022 and our last We Care Wednesday for the year. In 2017 we had no idea that the We Care Wednesday initiative would become a part of our business model, five years later and we look forward to continuing the effort next year. UPDATE: Thanks to your generosity we donated $1260! In November, Virginia and Noah were returning from a work trip in Hawaii and had a layover in San Francisco. What a pleasant surprise to discover the Welcome Blanket Project on display in one of the SFO terminals. Virginia immediately...
