About Us

Our Mission

The mission of the Beloved Early Education and Care Collective is to ensure that every child enters kindergarten socially and emotionally ready to learn, that every pregnant person, parent and early educator has positive well-being and the tools to navigate maternal health and early care systems, that families are resilient,  and that our community reduces mental health stigma for all ages.

​Our Vision

Our vision is to build upon the assets of our hardest-to-reach pregnant people, children, and caregivers so that we can co-create beloved community in maternal health and early education where everyone is treated with dignity.

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 South Carolina.

  • The function of freedom is to free someone else.

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 that have served and protected our communities.
