How Your Birth Experience Here Will Differ from a Hospital Birth
Peacefulness & Privacy
Our birth center is designed to promote privacy and intimacy for each couple. A small number of care providers and the absence of beeping machines and technology, provide a peaceful space that makes for a more relaxing and memorable birth experience.
Our certified nurse- midwives will listen to you and respect your wishes providing individualized, specialized care. They will help you feel confident, prepared, supported, and encouraged throughout your prenatal, birth, and postpartum days.
Discharge after 4-6 hours allows you and your baby to rest and recover without interruption in the comfort of your own bed. You will receive post-partum checks, teaching, and support in your home by a registered nurse on the first and second day after baby is born.
You decide who and how many family members or friends you want to invite to share your birth experience. You may choose the privacy of just you and your partner, or you may include other family members and friends, including children.
