Our BEE Birthing A Community Coalition is a multi-generational network and Community of Practice for birth workers in South Carolina. We exist to reduce maternal and infant mortality and morbidity in the Lowcountry of SC. We recruit, train, and support a new generation of birth workers that honor the wisdom and traditions of the many elder and ancestor granny-midwives in that have served and protected our communities.
Our vision is to build upon the assets of our hardest-to-reach pregnant and birthing people, children, and caregivers so that we can co-create beloved community in early education where everyone is treated with dignity.
Please consider making a donation in support of our work. You can also purchase an item for our

Reimaging Funding Partnerships
Vital Village Networks of Opportunity for Child Wellbeing (NOW) is built upon pillars of equity, dignity, and community-centered leadership. As NOW’s work has grown over the last several years, there has been an intentional focus on how to build and support local capacity to drive the transformation they want to see in their community. In the late spring of 2021 NOW partnered with 15 community champions, including members of the BEE Collective to reimagine cooperative funding structures.
Check out “A Dignity-Centered Guide to Reflecting on Cooperative Funding Structures”, a new resource that encourages funders and their potential partners to think intentionally about the goals and outcomes of their relationship, drawing on elements of successful #cooperative and #collaborative structures.
“Be aware that the other children of the world are your responsibility as well. You must learn to see them, to feel them, as yours. Until you do, there is no way you can make your own child feel safe.”
