Ashland Birth Center

Welcome! Ashland Birth Center is dedicated to providing parents and families with quality midwifery care during pregnancy, labor, delivery, and postpartum. Our practice follows the philosophical cornerstones set forth by the Mother Friendly Childbirth Initiative which states in part, that:

  • Birth is a normal, natural, and healthy process.
  • Women and babies have the inherent wisdom necessary for birth.
  • Babies are aware, sensitive human beings at the time of birth, and should be acknowledged and treated as such
  • The midwifery model of care, which supports and protects the normal birth process, is the most appropriate for the majority of women during pregnancy and birth.

About us

We have more information now than ever before about how to have a safe and healthy birth. It is our goal to help women and families access information, make sense of issues, think about their values and preferences, and put their care plan into place. It may take time and effort; but it is worth it!
