Birth in a birthing center caters to the healthy, low-risk mother. Some risk factors do not prohibit you from giving birth at the center, and some risk factors must be closely monitored by your midwife and/or by her consulting physicians. You are probably eligible for a birth center birth if you are healthy and without any chronic medical conditions. Your midwife will carefully screen you before admittance to the birth center and continuously evaluate you throughout your pregnancy to promote a safe and satisfying birth experience.
We offer preconception appointments if you are interested in talking with a midwife about eligibility, conceiving and overall health for pregnancy.
