Another whole floor is dedicated to families in labor, with three beautiful and spacious birth suites with private bathrooms and birthing tubs, a relaxing family lounge and a kitchenette equipped for light food preparation for the laboring mom and her support team.
Our midwives provide high quality, one-on-one, evidence based care with a deep commitment to safe practice standards, informed decision making, and respectful and nurturing care. The care women receive before, during and after birth is very personalized and tailored to meet a client’s individual needs. Our practice is characterized by careful risk screening, enhanced education and support to help prevent complications from arising, and minimal intervention in the natural process of pregnancy and birth. We believe that every woman deserves a healthy pregnancy and recognize that for most women, this is a time of intense personal growth for her and her family!
