Embrace Birth Center
We are Open &
Welcoming New Families!
With plenty of parking, you are able to be at our front door in just a few steps. As you enter, you are greeted by our friendly office manager, Amy, who will be sure to point out our tea bar or offer you some fruit infused water.
We pride ourselves on our clients never waiting for more than a few minutes for their appointments,so your midwife will be with you quickly.
The next birth room is Mermaid Cove, in blues and browns, and feels much more Quiet and Secluded. Both rooms feature private bathrooms, extra deep birth tubs, queen beds, luxury linens, aromatherapy, music options, and of course, midwives.
As you head to the warm and friendly midwife office, you will pass by the first birth room. The Serenity Suite is decorated in greens, with lots of windows and natural light, making it feel bright and cheery.
The birth center also has an exam room, a family lounge, a kitchenette
and all facilities to meet national standards for the cleaning and handling of equipment and laundry.
A birth center offers low-risk women expecting healthy babies the opportunity to birth
in a safe, gentle, compassionate manner that honors their right to be in control
of their bodies, their births, and their babies
Do you want to push your baby out underwater? We love waterbirth!
Often called the “midwife’s aqua-dural”, nothing seems to help mothers as much as getting into birth tub. Almost all of my clients use the tub for comfort during labor, and close to actually have their babies underwater.
Placing a pool of water in a birth room changes the atmosphere immediately. Voices get softer, the mother stays calmer and everyone becomes less stressed. We also offer birth pool rentals, even if you are not a midwifery client.
“When a woman births, not only is a baby being born but so is a mother. How we treat her will affect how she feels about herself as a mother and as a parent. Be gentle. Be kind. Listen.”
