Frequently Asked Questions
Is this safe?
Absolutely. Women who choose a birth center decrease their risk of needing a C-section to only 6%. Minimal intervention, a comforting environment, and multiple advocates for your birth mean you have a much higher chance of giving birth vaginally without complications.
Can I afford it?
Yes, you can. We want every woman to have the chance to give birth on her terms. We can work with you to develop a financial plan that works for you and your family so the birth you want is available.
What about pain?
Pain is part of this journey. To manage it, we have birthing tubs, birthing balls, and dedicated staff to help you focus and persevere. You can do it!
