Collective Wings Perinatal Project
-Katsi Cook, Mohawk Midwife
Formerly the Santa Cruz Bilingual Doula Collective in 2012 and the Janus Perinatal Doula Program in 2015, Collective Wings Perinatal Project (CWPP) has been serving the community since January 1, 2016. We prioritize bilingual, people of color, queer, and childbearing families in recovery who are interacting with institutions such as Child Welfare, Recovery Centers, Probation, Immigration System, and others. We offer trauma informed and culturally appropriate doula model of care services across the full spectrum of pregnancy experiences, including: abortion, miscarriage, stillbirth and adoption. We also provide advocacy, wombyn’s health, childbirth education and postpartum wellness groups. We work with each family’s vision and do our best to meet their needs or connect them to resources in the community. In addition, we offer belly casting, MotherBaby Blessings, pregnancy photography, herbal medicines, postpartum sealing ceremonies, placenta rituals and encapsulation.

Collective Wings Perinatal Project prioritizes women and families in recovery programs, farmworking, homeless, youth, queer and others with minimal support system. Low income families and other families can receive services on a sliding scale basis.

We are a cohesive unity rooted in the vision of birth and reproductive justice for all. Through human interconnection and presence, we hold space for childbearing families in their process of reconnecting to their inner wisdom and strength. We believe that birth medicine and honoring the cycles of life can help heal our communities.
