Home Birth and Birth Center in Richmond, Virginia
Safe, simple birthing with experienced midwives grounded in community, connection and science.
Our home birth clients enjoy prenatal care at home and at the birth center. In labor, two experienced midwives come to the home and provide continuous care throughout labor, birth and the hours following birth. Home birth families often choose water birth, using our inflatable portable birthing tubs. Home birth families enjoy the comfort and familiarity of home.
Our Birth Center is located in Lakeside, Virginia, right outside of the city of Richmond. Nestled in this historic home you will find peaceful birth suites, comfortable waiting and clinical areas, classes, community events and more. We built our birth center in a house because we wanted a space that felt warm, welcoming and home-like. Our birth suites offer complete privacy and the amenities of home - a private kitchen, bath, and birthing space. We think you will love our tubs!
We offer community based, holistic support to families from birth through menopause. We offer well care including STI testing, PAP smears, holistic and medical birth control including IUD insertion and removal. Contact us for fertility consults, IUI, ICI and more. If we don't have the answers we will help you find someone who does.
“A woman in birth is at once her most powerful, and most vulnerable. But any woman who has birthed unhindered understands that we are stronger than we know.” – Marcie Macari
