Birth Center Birth
We are privileged to use Center for Birth near lake Union in the Eastlake neighborhood and Puget Sound Birth Center in Kirkland. These freestanding birth centers are not attached to or affiliated with a hospital. However, they are closely located near several hospitals in the event hospital transfer is needed.
Reasons you may choose to deliver at a birth center:
- You plan an unmedicated birth, and want an environment that is supportive of this decision.
- You want to labor and/or give birth in a large tub, that your partner could fit in to offer support.
- You have thin apartment walls, housemates, big pets or just general discomfort with giving birth at home.
