The Natural Birth & Women’s Associates practice is based on a philosophy of client education, participation and choice. Our beliefs are deeply rooted in the knowledge that birth is natural and that respect for nature and the laboring woman and her family is essential.

Our main concern is that birth be a safe, loving and joyful event. We believe that a pregnant woman needs information, support and gentle guidance.

Our care is provided by licensed midwives who are experienced and qualified to independently manage the care of healthy women throughout their childbearing years. Women in need of more specialized care are collaboratively managed with our physicians.

 

Parents were asked about their experiences at the Natural Birth & Women's Center during our annual Mother's Day Picnic. ***Watch what they said HERE! ***
