Created in 2019, the San Francisco Birth Circle has met regularly at a residential location on Dakota Street in Potrero Hill's Terrace and Annex Housing Complex. Due to the global pandemic and spread of COVID-19 in California, the group has met outdoors since the spring of 2020. The Potrero Hill Neighborhood House (NABE) has also offered to host SF Birth Circle meetings now that its social distancing requirements allow for indoor meetings.
Anna Hennessey and Catrina McKneely met in 2016 and have daughters who are the same age. They have worked on several other projects outside of the San Francisco Birth Circle and are dedicated to their friendship and to building community.
