The Central Coast Doula Association (CCDA) would like to thank the following businesses and individuals for their generous donations of products and/or services.

Every year, CCDA successfully raises money through auctions or raffles to fund its outreach, programs and services. CCDA could not be successful without these wonderful donations.

Through these fundraising efforts we are able to sustain our mission: to provide a strong communication link between practicing doulas, the childbearing public, maternity caregivers and others interested in learning more about labor and postpartum support, and to facilitate continuing education for our members and the community. We will continue to offer outstanding educational conferences and workshops, movie screenings and classes for central coast families, doulas, and other birth professionals, thanks to these donations.

If you are interested in donating to future CCDA auctions and raffles, please leave a message at 805-202-3001 or email

Important disclaimer:
The Central Coast Doula Association is happy to pass along the names of doulas and
other providers who have given us permission to release their names for referral. Please
understand that CCDA is an alliance of doulas and other perinatal professionals, and is not a
credentialing agency or a regulatory body. As such, we cannot be accountable for the competence of members of the organization. CCDA urges all parents to take responsibility for their birth experience by informing themselves regarding the competence of local practitioners. This can be done by asking questions, obtaining local references and knowing that good perinatal care entails thorough reading and discussing care with other parents and care providers. CCDA wishes you a happy and healthy birth experience in the environment of your choice.
