Welcome to Our Home

Holistic Birth Center

Take a tour of our baby birth center and learn what true care looks like. Our unwavering attention to detail provides a custom birthing experience that’s perfect for you and your family.

Birth Center

Our birth center offers low-risk women expecting healthy babies the opportunity for natural and water birth in a safe, gentle, compassionate manner that honors their right to be in control of their bodies, their births, and their babies.


Ample, free parking means you are just a few steps for our front door. As you enter, you are greeted by our friendly office manager, Amy, who will welcome you into our warm, comfortable waiting. Please feel free to visit our tea and snack bar, use our free Wi-Fi, check out a book from our lending library, and make yourself at home.


Our licensed, certified midwives pride themselves in being on time for your appointment. Your time is as important as ours! We’ll be with you quickly, so you should rarely have to wait for more than a few minutes.


As you head to the warm and friendly midwife office, you will pass by the first birth room, the Serenity Suite. Decorated in greens, with plenty of windows and natural light, the atmosphere is bright and cheery.


The next birth room is Mermaid Cove, in blues and browns, provides more quiet and secluded space.


Both rooms feature private bathrooms, extra deep tubs for water birth, queen beds, luxury linens, aromatherapy, music options, and of course, a licensed, certified midwife and a doula.


The birth center also has an exam room, a family lounge, a kitchenette, offices, storage and all the necessary facilities to meet national standards for the cleaning and handling of equipment and laundry.


Take a look at our beautiful birth center located in Richmond, VA. We offer plenty of parking and two spacious birthing suites: The Serenity Suite & Mermaid Cove.

“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.”

Ruth Ehrhardt

Water Birth

At our birth center, we love water birth.

​Often called the Midwife’s Aquadural, nothing seems to help mothers as much as getting into birth tub.  Almost all of our clients use the tub for comfort during labor, and nearly 70% choose to 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.

Home Birth

Sometimes, there’s just no place like home. Your kitchen, your bathroom, your bed. At Embrace, we know that some women feel safest and most comfortable in familiar surroundings. Our home birth package is just like our birth center’s package…same care, same supplies, same midwives. We even bring a birth pool! There’s nothing quite like your own home. Contact us today to find out if Homebirth is the right choice for you.
