Birth Center Birth
Birth Center birth is an alternative for families not comfortable with home birth, yet not wanting to give birth in a hospital. This provides many of the same advantages as home birth, such as greater client control, non-intervention care, freedom to eat and move during labor, the option to give birth in any position, and choice to have any number of family and friends attend the birth.
You wear your own clothes. We monitor the baby with intermittent waterproof dopplers or a fetoscope. Because it is very unusual for there to be more than one woman giving birth at the birth center at any given time there is maximum privacy for you and your family. Discharge time after birth is measured in hours, not days and while you are there, you and your baby are never separated.
