Area Birthing Centers

The Birth Center

1508 W 7th St, Wilmington, DE 19805

"At The Birth Center, pregnancy and birth are treated as a natural process, not a medical procedure. We encourage our laboring mothers to move, walk, eat, drink, shower, get on a birth ball or in the tub— whatever their bodies tell them to do! You may even birth your baby into the water birth tub.

The CNM stays with the family throughout labor providing labor support, comfort measures and medical monitoring. The result is a relaxed, empowered woman laboring effectively to birth her child naturally and safely. At The Birth Center, we appreciate and celebrate your individual birth choices. We provide education, information and personalized care to help you learn about your body, its various stages and your individualized needs during these important times. We work with you to learn about natural birth, individualized birth plans and encourage you to develop the trust in yourself to give birth and transition into parenthood. The rewards of learning to trust your body’s innate ability to birth are deep and will have a lasting impact on your family.The midwife stays with you for a portion of your postpartum stay; the Registered Nurse stays with you for your entire postpartum stay. Infants are never separated from mothers. They stay skin-to-skin and nurse during the first couple hours."
