Your Certified and Licensed Midwife Supports Labor Your Way
When you choose care from a licensed midwife at Alba Birth Center, you will receive an experienced specialist who is comfortable with all variations of normal birth. We encourage women to deliver in positions that are instinctive and natural to them. We encourage squatting, use of birth stools, and water birth. Women in our care are not confined to beds on their backs during delivery. Women in labor at Alba Birth Center walk freely, unencumbered by monitors and IVs. Laboring women eat and drink throughout labor and enjoy many comfort measures found in no other place in the Fox Valley area.
