The Birth and Women’s Center in Dallas employs experienced midwives and nurse-midwives dedicated to providing unique home-like birthing experiences. Located near a major Dallas hospital, the Birth and Women’s Center is a modified birthing center that provides women, couples, and families with the opportunity to experience natural births that are safer than complete home births.
Birthing centers are a great alternative for women and couples who do not want to have their babies in hospitals but are not completely comfortable with home birth. The staff at these centers typically includes highly skilled midwives who work hard to create relaxing atmospheres for laboring mothers. The centers offer women the opportunity to enjoy natural and healthy births with more private and personalized care for patients. They also accommodate family members and friends more effectively than hospitals.
Compared to hospitals, birthing centers provide much more flexibility in a less rigid atmosphere. Most allow for physical activity and eating during labor, and women may give birth in any position they wish. Patients at birthing centers usually have the opportunity to meet the entire staff before giving birth, and they often go home sooner in the event of normal births without complications. Additionally, the cost at a birthing center is significantly less than hospital and physician charges.
