Bay Area Midwifery Fund

The Bay Area Midwifery Fund (BAMF) was established in 2008 by Bay Area midwives, former clients and others with the goal of making midwifery care available to families with limited income. BAMF is funded entirely by tax-deductable donations and is administered by an all-volunteer staff of midwives; the Fund is managed through The Circle of Life Foundation.


As midwives we strive to serve all pregnant people regardless of class or income. Unfortunately, we are finding it increasingly difficult to meet this goal without the help of the wider community. BAMF provides loans and/or grants to eligible MediCal recipients for midwifery care. A minimum 25% reduction in fees is provided by all participating midwives. Loan recipients are responsible for paying back 50% of the loan by their baby’s first birthday.


Please consider making a tax-deductible donation and encouraging other members of your community to contribute to the Fund so that midwives may continue the work of serving all women. All donations are tax-deductable and receipts are issued upon gifting.
