Babymoon Inn

A birth sanctuary tended by midwives

Personalized midwifery care in a freestanding

birth center.

Babymoon Inn birth center was born out of the passion of families who wanted to provide access to midwifery care in a freestanding, out-of-hospital setting.  Our birth center allows low-risk women to experience birth in a comfortable, home-like setting where natural birth is the focus.

Full-scope Midwifery

We offer full-scope midwifery care including annual exams, family planning, testing for infections, and pregnancy testing for women throughout their life span.

N

Prenatal Care

Our prenatal care program, which we refer to as enhanced prenatal care is based on the Midwives’ Model of Care that recognizes pregnancy and birth as normal life processes.

N

Childbirth Education

Our classes teach parents birth practices that promote a safe and healthy birth for moms and babies.  Our educators provide evidence-based information so you can make the choices that are best for your family. 

N

Water Birth

 Known as “the midwife’s epidural” water can be one of the best ways to manage pain during childbirth; reducing stress and promoting relaxation.  

N

Shared Decision-Making

Shared decision-making is crucial to birth center care.  You and your midwife work together as a team, with your preferences and values.

Snacks

And of course….snacks.  You wouldn’t leave your mom’s house hungry, would you?  We feel the same way about visiting Babymoon Inn. 

Birth centers are safe.

Two national birth center studies of more than 30,000 planned birth center births uniformly reported outcomes equivalent or superior to those of comparable women giving birth in the hospital.

Birth centers are personalized.

We don’t believe in a cookie-cutter approach to care. What is right for one person isn’t necessarily right for someone else. At Babymoon, you play an active role in your care and are always a part of the decision-making process. Your appointments with a midwife will last 30-60 minutes so you have time to ask questions, feel heard, and establish trust with your care provider.

Birth centers are necessary.

Birth centers continuously have outcomes better than the national average, including a 6% Cesarean rate and a non-existent maternal death rate.  In the national birth center studies, 98% of women said they would choose birth center care again.

Giving Birth at Babymoon Inn

Birth at Babymoon Inn is characterized by options.  Under the care of your midwife, you are able to move, labor outside in our garden, float in the birth tub, and freely use our birth props (labor balls, birth stools, etc.).  You can bring in food and beverages.  Your family and friends are welcome if you want them to be there. 

We see birth as a normal life event that requires minimal intervention. Our role at your birth is to facilitate, not to dictate. You won’t be hooked up to unnecessary monitors or subject to unnecessary interventions. You will be supported in birthing the way that feels right to you, by people who believe in personalized and evidence-based care.

Why choose a birth center

The National Birth Center Study II, which included more than 15,000 people planning to give birth at a birth center, found:

No maternal deaths

A Cesarean rate of 4.4%.

A low overall intrapartum and neonatal mortality rate of 1.3/1000 births

98.8% of women would recommend birth center care to friends and/or return for a subsequent birth

What our clients say

“”Babymoon treats birth like the rite of passage it is. You encourage families who come to you to be fully involved in their care and to become experts in the things that most other care providers leave mysterious – like breastfeeding, and the pros and cons of different birth interventions. It is truly holistic care and you make it FUN!

My midwife cares about me and my family. Midwifery is her job. It pay the bills. She has caught hundreds of babies for hundreds of women in her lifetime. We were just another family. Just another mom and another baby on another August morning. Nothing remarkable, except another little life barging his way into the world.

And yet. There she is, rooting for us, cheering for us – genuinely, truly happy for us. For me. Quietly holding the space with immeasurable warmth. This is midwifery.”
