We believe that:

  • Women are asking for—and deserve—choice in childbirth.
  • Midwifery is a woman-centered, culturally sensitive model of maternal care. For many, this is also a social justice issue.
  • Midwifery is a low-cost, safe approach to birth that reduces the risk of unnecessary interventions and surgery.
  • Midwifery improves maternal health by providing comprehensive perinatal care, which includes longer pre- and post-natal visits, education and respect for women’s choices in childbirth.
  • All women should have the birth they choose, whether they pay through Medi-Cal, private insurance, or private/sliding fee scale. (The birth center accepts all payments.)
