Empowering Natural Birth Experience

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 allow women to deliver in positions that are instinctive and natural to them. We encourage squatting, birth stools, and water birth.

  • A skilled team to support the whole family
