More and more families have come to realize the tremendous benefits of midwifery care. As society begins to change its views on the modern approach to birthing, it has become more acceptable to use midwives for low risk pregnancies. Some people however, are not yet comfortable with an out of hospital birth and for those women we offer prenatal and postpartum care only. The advantage of this approach is that families can receive the benefits of having a midwife, yet still deliver in the hospital with an OB/GYN.
A birthing center birth offers you the ultimate midwifery birthing experience. A safe, natural approach to your delivery, coupled with personalized attention and support is our goal for you at The Birth Place. Healthy women, experiencing healthy pregnancies are encouraged to use our birthing options such as birthing balls, birthing stool, squatting and other positions for delivery and of course water birth to enhance their experience. Family involvement is always welcomed and encouraged. You are part of the decision making process with a full understanding of what is happening at all times. The avoidance of interventions keep your chances of a cesarean delivery to a minimum. Our OB backup and hospital transfer arrangements ensure safe care for every woman.
We encourage you to research the benefits of natural birth, there are many resources available.
