I recently had a baby at Better Birth. It was an amazing experience! The midwives were wonderful. I received excellent prenatal care. I loved the time they spent with me at each visit, talking about whatever pregnancy/birth issues I wanted. It was never rushed and I never had to wait more than five minutes for my appointment. Each midwife and student midwife was sensitive, caring, and knowledgeable. They were respectful and not intrusive. I was given a lot more privacy and dignity at Better Birth than at the OB I went to with my first child. The birth center felt like home (they also do home births). I loved the big bed and the tub where I had a water birth. I really appreciated the kitchen and being able to eat and drink as wanted. Everything was so clean and comfortable. I also appreciated their very reasonable prices (much much cheaper than a hospital birth!). My favorite thing about Better Birth: They focus on letting moms decide what they want for their birth—they don’t force you into following “standard procedure” like doctors and hospitals do. You are in control of your own birth—they are there to support you. I loved being surrounded by people I knew and was comfortable with during my labor and birth. It was so nice to never have anyone think I was crazy for wanting a natural birth. My birth was perfect…exactly how I wanted it. They took amazing care of me and my baby. I wish every woman could have as good of an experience with their births as I had at Better Birth. I totally recommend them!
I loved my experience with BetterBirth. This was my first baby, so I was a little nervous initially, but the midwives completely put my mind at ease. I always felt like my wants and needs were heard, and I was never forced into a procedure because that was what I was "supposed" to do. They always explained every process, and they answered every one of my questions expertly and patiently (and I had a lot of them!). When I finally went into labor, the midwives and students gave me such great support. They helped create a calm and quiet environment while making sure that my baby and I were always perfectly safe. I always felt like I was in such good hands. I'm so grateful that my first birthing experience was able to be as good as it was. I fully recommend them, and I know that I will be back with baby #2!
I gave birth to my first baby at Better Birth back in November and I couldn't be happier with my experience there! I was able to follow my birth plan and labor in a very peaceful birth room making it so special and unique. My husband was also very happy with his experience, he was very involved the whole time and was so grateful to be included in the birth process to the extent that he was. It was important for us both to be in an environment where my body and opinion was respected while still having the expertise of the midwives to keep me and my baby safe in and out of the birth center and Better Birth provides just that.
