San Francisco Diaper Free Collective
for all your Elimination Communication & Potty Transitioning needs
Monthly Support Group
This is a FREE support group for those that are Potty Training or doing Elimination Communication (infant potty training).
The support group is meant to help troubleshoot any problem areas, find encouragement, get to know one another in the community, and maybe even share some tips to other parents. As certified Go Diaper Free Coaches, we moderate and offer these free support groups to our community based on a gentle non-coercive approach to EC and potty training.
All are welcome. If you are just starting out, thinking about starting out, or already in the midst of it, please come and join us.
Join our FREE support groups and be apart of the SF Diaper Free Community. Connect with other families and share ideas. The journey is always more fun with friends along the way!

SF Diaper Free Collective is a community of parents and educators committed to early potty communication and potty independence.
Through our workshops, meet-ups (online and in person), and social media groups we spread awareness and normalize early potty learning as an alternative to modern diapering.
Diapers can be a useful tool, but only if we learn to use them in parallel with a child’s early potty communication.
We aim to connect families with resources they need for their potty learning journey, no matter the age or stage.
Commitment to our Community
While we are first and foremost an EC and potty learning resource, we recognize our obligation as teachers, parents, and community members to uphold certain standards and ideals. As such, the San Francisco Diaper Free Collective does NOT tolerate racism, anti-semitism, homophobia, transphobia, or bigotry of any kind. Our community, whether on video calls, on social media, or in-person classes, aims to be a safe place for persons who identify as BIPOC or LGBTQI+, as well as persons of ALL religious or cultural identities.
As white identifying women teaching a philosophy rooted in traditional indigenous and non-white cultural practices, we are committed to using our platform to amplify BIPOC and traditionally marganalized voices. As such, in addition to advertising our own classes and services, we have a directory on this website for anyone in the Bay Area who teaches Potty Learning and/or Elimination communication, with priority given to any teachers who identify as BIPOC. It is our belief that all families deserve access to culturally congruent care and we hope to use this website to make that just a little bit easier.
At the moment our directory is limited to the Greater Bay Area, but with technology making remote learning ever more popular, we may consider including teachers from other locations as well.
If you or someone you know would like to be included in this directory, please see our Community page to get in touch.
