How It Works
Our Birthing Center was built upon the belief that childbirth is not an illness and should not be treated as such. We strive to provide a labor which is safe, comfortable and drug & intervention free. We wish to offer another alternative to hospital and home birth. Our Birthing Center will deliver care in a spa-like setting where care providers, usually midwives, will provide family-centered care to low risk pregnant women. Our midwives and staff subscribe to the "wellness" model of birth, which means that they provide continuous, supportive care and interventions will only be used when medically necessary. At Our Birthing Center we wish to empower women and make them partners in the decision making process of their birthing experience. For example, at Our Birthing Center women are encouraged to eat if they are hungry, move about and spend time in a tub or shower as they wish, and push in whatever positions they find most comfortable. Our Birthing Center recognizes that the mother knows what her body needs to give birth. The midwives and staff attend to her needs, while diligently watching for signs that are outside the realm of wellness.
