Facilities—Freestanding Birth Center

BirthCare's midwives can attend your birth in our safe, comfortable and homelike Birth Center. With the skillful attention of the midwives, the mother can be supported to birth in our low tech environment. The mother can invite as many or as few family members and friends to lend their help during the birth. If hospital intervention becomes necessary, a transport mechanism is in place. Approximately 25% of our clients give birth in the birth center.

BirthCare offers a labor and birthing area with two private rooms. Both access a bathroom with a large Jacuzzi tub which helps many women relax during labor. Both also have private bathrooms. A kitchen is also easily accessible so that you can bring your favorite nourishing comfort foods for you and your loved ones.

We provide a place that gives you a caring, warm, and homelike setting where you are supported and respected as well as safe and secure. You will have a private room for giving birth where you can make yourself comfortable, take a warm bath/Jacuzzi, wear your own clothing, play your favorite relaxation music and have nourishment when you feel hungry.

We welcome your children, your parents, and friends so you can decide who will be with you or near you when you give birth.

BirthCare—for continuing support and information on prenatal care, out-of-hospital births, infant care, breast feeding, parenting, gynecological care, and family planning.
