History


Molly Arthur is a native San Franciscan; she graduated from UC Berkeley and has had extensive experience working with startups and growing networks in her professional sales career. She and her husband of over 43 years have raised two children in Marin County and happily her new twin granddaughters live close by in San Francisco! She is the inspiration behind EcoBirth whose vision is -Relating earth and birth- caring for one natural life so we will all be well. She has a fierce desire to protect all our children and grandchildren and fully appreciate the freely given gifts of our Mother Earth. She sees birth as the metaphor for transformation and creation that if honored, will create a paradigm shift in our culture’s consciousness. Her focus is on inspiring women to change our culture’s story to compassion for the environments of Earth and Birth and to impel social change to sustain healthy, caring humans and a healed earth home. "I am a mother and grandmother. I want to leave my legacy as a Beloved Ancestor. But right now I am responsible for the bad shape the world is in. I want to try to change that as much as possible, as quickly as possible. I have a fierce desire to protect my children and grandchildren and make a better world. So EcoBirth inspires me to tell the stories of love and compassion and work with women to tell those stories so we understand our unbroken lineage to all life on earth and connection to future generations."
