What Is A Birth Center?


Why Choose a Birth Center?

Freestanding birth centers provide the opportunity for families to take a holistic and engaged approach to their birth experience with supportive, professional and highly trained licensed midwives.

Birth centers can be a fantastic middle-ground option for many families that would like to have evidence-based, culturally competent and fully informed holistic care.

Can I have a waterbirth?

Absolutely. And waterbirth is not all that we're about! We want you to drink during labor, eat during labor, move during labor. You'd be surprised at how soothing and pleasant water can be during your labor and birth.


We put a tub in your birth room for your convenience and we have an amazing shower that you can labor in as well. Partners, bring your suit!
