One of the most exciting things about the movement to empower women through childbirth is seeing new moms’ options when it comes to delivery. For so long, childbirth was treated as some clinical thing where the mom had almost no autonomy. Thankfully, this is no longer the case! More mothers are choosing birth centers when it comes to unmedicated childbirth. San Diego Birth centers offer the perfect option for mothers who choose not to have home births but are still apprehensive about hospitals. They allow you to walk around, eat a snack, and feel in control of your delivery. Choosing the right place can be a bit daunting, however. Not only are you deciding where your next chapter of life will begin, but you’re also choosing a team who will walk you through this transition. Here are some of the birth centers around San Diego that my clients love. 

Three Fantastic San Diego Birthing Centers To Welcome Your Little One

Family Affair Birth Center

Family Affair Birth Center is dedicated to strengthening families through the process of delivery. So often, partners are entirely left out of the equation. Family Affair prevents this by involving your partner in the process. They’ll learn how to best aid you throughout delivery and in the postpartum stage. Family Affair puts the power of childbirth back in women’s hands. In the months before delivery, your midwife will help you create a birth plan and prepare you to make it a reality. When labor begins, you’ll be placed in a cozy room with a luxurious bath and a private terrace, and your dedicated team will be there through it.
