Don't even bother contacting them unless you fit a very narrow profile of patient. I'm in perfect health, no complications at all, fully insured, but I was turned away because of my work schedule. I travel out of state for my job, so I would have had to have one of my prenatal exams at another facility, and I would have had to take some of the classes at another facility, most of which I already had lined up, but still I was told "you're not a good fit for our facility." Apparently their classes are so unique, so rarefied, that no other facility could possibly be up to their standards. So I'm left with the options of a facility without a single CNM on staff, or a hospital birth at Christmas time (the rates of C-sections go up during the holidays). Home birth is out of the question, It's too risky and if anything goes wrong I don't live close to a hospital. Basically I'm just screwed, simply because they can't be bothered to work with a working mother. They wouldn't even see me for a preliminary appointment. I found out I'm pregnant just as we started the process of moving to Austin from North Carolina, and I was so comforted to see there was a well regarded, well staffed facility in the city. Now I'm rethinking our move to Austin simply because I don't know where I can have this baby. To sum up, working mothers beware, they have no sympathy for the fact that some of us still have to earn a living while pregnant.

I agree with the previous review that it's very important to interview several doctors/midwives before choosing someone to help deliver your children and we're very fortunate in Austin to have a large pool of midwives and doctors to choose from. Childbearing is a wonderful time but also a very v…

Austin Area Birthing Center is a fabulous alternative for a low risk pregnancy. After learning about all the interventions and high c-section rates on normal births, we decided to look into alternatives. I have experienced both my pregnancies as well as well-women care at the south location. All of the midwives are caring and very knowledgable. We completely trust them with my health and the birth of our children. My first labor was 8 hours and they allowed my husband and I to really complete the birth together, only monitoring and encouraging, but not interfering. My second labor, happened to be only 40 minutes. We didn't end up making it to our car, let alone the birthing center, so we had an unplanned, unassisted home birth! Oops! They sent a midwife as soon a it was clear I wasn't going to be making it anywhere. Meg was here within 15 minutes of the birth and stayed and monitored us just as they would have at the birthing center. She was fantastic! They are opening a home birth branch which will be well received! The price is extraordinary and includes birthing, breastfeeding, sibling prep, and baby massage classes, yoga, at home visit from a lactation consultant and beautiful facilities. The front staff and nursing staff is prompt, considerate and on time. They are just as excited as you are! If you are even considering them, go for a free tour and visit and you will be converted.

The mom who wrote this review was a patient at least 3 yrs. ago since "Faith" has not worked here since Oct. of 05. The first time I read this negative review was 3 yrs. ago on a different site.The only time a refund would be withheld as in her case, might be when the insurance had not paid us yet so there was no money to refund. Our new financial lady, Denise can answer all billing, refund, and insurance questions and is here from 8am to 2pm daily.Otherwise ANY concerns about billing OR care can be addressed with our staff or myself at any time, my door is always open and I am willing to try and solve any concerns that arise.Our clinical director is Joan Smith, RN CNM MSN and is available for clinical concerns at 346-3224.My email is email@example.com We are always sad and a bit disappointed when someone leaves our care but we realize that even though the vast majority of our families are very happy we may not be able to please everyone and some may not be a good fit for our center.
