Midwifery: The Natural Choice for You and Your Baby

Your Vision, Safely Orchestrated

How you deliver your baby is a highly personal decision. If you are a low-risk mother expecting a normal pregnancy, you may be a good candidate for an age-old option that’s making a modern comeback –midwifery. When you choose delivery at The Birth Center’s Midwifery Suites, you’ll get the hands-on encouragement of a certified nurse-midwife who guides you through a more natural birth. She is there to honor the birth plan you envision in a safe and personalized environment.

Meet Our Midwives

As you probably know, midwives have been around a long time. Our certified nurse-midwives are registered nurses who have undergone extensive training from a nurse-midwifery education program accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Midwifery Education (ACME) and have passed a national certification examination.

Your midwife is your advocate during your pregnancy through the delivery of your baby. She is there to care for you and your baby, ensure your birth plan is followed as closely as possible, and help deliver your child in a more natural manner with fewer medications and interventions.

Your Individual Plan in a Safe Setting

What makes The Birth Center unique is that we offer midwifery and natural birth in a home-like setting within the safety of a specialty hospital. That means you can have a home-like birth with immediate access to modern safety measures if they become necessary. We’ll honor your decision to have an unmedicated birth, but if you change your mind or certain circumstances arise, we can provide pain management and other services. Also, if it becomes necessary, emergency interventions such as cesarean birth can be performed immediately by an on-site obstetrician available around-the-clock. And, CHOC Children’s at Mission Hospital is steps away should your baby need special care.

Just Like Home, But Fully Equipped

The Midwifery Suites at The Birth Center offer a safe, home-like environment. You’ll find comfortable, family-friendly suites featuring a queen-size bed, spacious laboring tub, and spa-like amenities such as aromatherapy, massage, LED candles, and a sound bar to help you relax during and after the birth of your child.

Take a look at our Midwife Suites, an age-old concept with today’s amenities.

Should You Call the Midwife?

If you are expecting a low-risk birth, the decision is entirely up to you. Doctors and nurse midwives have the same goals –a healthy mom and baby –but their approach is different. Doctors focus on clinical care. Midwives strive for fewer medical interventions and medications, helping you have a natural birth.
