Professionally Assisted Natural Birth

Around the Clock Pregnancy Care

Your midwifery team is available 24/7 throughout pregnancy and postpartum. We’re here for all your prenatal questions, diet and exercise recommendations, and even 2AM breastfeeding calls.

Personalized Approach to Maternity Care

Maternity care personalized for your unique needs — natural and water births in our home-like center or in your own home. Every birth is different and requires sensitive, loving, and customized care.

Listening to You is The Foundation for Care

Quality care begins by listening to our clients. Giving birth is a highly personal and emotional experience that should be surrounded by those who know your unique story and health history.

Our Team

Our team is comprised of a dynamic group of midwives and doctors working together to provide personalized, evidence-based, minimal intervention care. This unique combination of professional skills, perspective, and knowledge, benefits our clients by providing a balanced perspective on general health, maternity, and infant care.

“…I’m SO THRILLED I heard about this amazing place just in the nick of time! Stella Marie came in a 3 hour delivery and I’m more than ever convinced that a drug-free, water labor is one of the BEST ways to have your child enter the world. Family Birth & Wellness Center made it possible for me to have an awesome memory I will cherish for a lifetime.  A HUGE THANK YOU to all my new friends!”

“The care provided by Mary, Brenda and the rest of the staff at Family Birth and Wellness Center was above and beyond anything I expected. Every appointment I had was very relaxed & thorough, never on a time restraint or impersonal. I always felt that all of my questions and concerns were not only addressed but completely discussed and answered, and I always felt respected. It’s a beautiful place filled with such welcoming individuals encouraging you the entire way.”
