The Grand Junction Birth Collective is a group of birth workers that have joined together to offer you a one-stop-shop for all the services you could ever want for your birth!


GJ Birth Collective's mission is for families of Western Colorado to have access to supportive care and evidence based education in the childbearing years. We strengthen the community by connecting families to services that are in line with their goals and philosophy. We also provide a network of local birth professionals to work together and support one another through fellowship, encouragement, education, and community relations. 



Please contact all individuals directly if you would like to learn more about their services.
