the ROOT

Midwifery. Community. Care. get back to the root.

The ROOT is a space for midwifery and the shared wisdom that’s inspired by women gathering. It’s home to four San Francisco midwives who chose to weave their individual and dynamic practices into collaborative space. Our mission is to create opportunity for women to connect, normalize, re-wild and initiate the blueprint of birth, and to feel the collective power and grace of an ever expanding community. Get back to the ROOT of it all: beauty, birth, and love.

Comprehensive information on homebirth and homebirth midwives in the Bay Area.

Sanctuary Leopi

Her practice of orthobionomy, Sanctuary Leopi, is the most transformative experience any of us have ever had the pleasure to enjoy. Having had every type of body work under the sun and routinely relying on chiropractic, acupuncture, massage and the like, we have never had any work that felt as good to receive or whose benefits lasted as long.
