We can't wait to have our next baby there!
My husband and I could probably write pages about how incredible our experience with the Birth Center has been. I began receiving prenatal care there in August shortly after they opened. Each appointment was something we looked forward to as we felt cared for and listened to. All of our questions and concerns were heard and addressed. This is our first child so we appreciated all the time that was spent helping us to feel confident. The experience was so personal, and we felt like everyone there actually cared about us instead of just caring for us. We also really appreciated that they included my husband in the process. He was treated like an integral part of my care and birth instead of just a bystander. That was so important to us, and it is something we had yet to experience before going there. My maternity care and birth became an intimate, personalized, family event instead of a medical event. We were honored to be the first birth to take place there, and we honestly couldn't be happier with how it went. We are some of the lucky few who actually had the birth experience we hoped for and dreamed of. They took time to create relationships with us beforehand so we felt secure when it was time to go there during labor. It felt as natural as going home. We had originally planned for a home birth but realized that wasn't going to work for us for this baby, but after our birth at the Birth Center, I honestly don't know if a home birth would have been more intimate. We were so genuienly supported throughout labor and delivery. There was such an atmosphere of love and comfort. Everyone was so attentive and encouraging. Best of all, they gave us space and allowed my husband to be the "lead" but they were always there whenever we needed anything. Any time they did check on us or help me, it didn't feel like an intrusion but welcomed. I knew they believed in me. Our daughter's birth felt like a celebration, and genuine joy, excitement, and pride was felt by everyone involved. My postpartum care has been so personal. They have tenderly cared for our daughter and patiently answered all of our questions which is so reassuring as new parents. The facility itself is amazing. It is so comfortable and provides such a feeling of home. We had a very private, comfortable place to spend our first night as a family. There wasn't anything we felt we needed or missed by not being at home. We really can't think of anything we would change about the experience if we could. We can't say enough good things about the people and the facility.
