Meet Our Team

Our Birth Care Services

When the big day finally arrives, we’ll be here to make sure your birth is an unforgettable experience! As soon as you walk through the doors of our center you’ll be greeted by your birth care team and led to a private suite for just you, your partner, and whoever else you choose to include. We’ll help you get comfortable, answer any questions you may have, and make sure you have everything you need to feel safe and supported.

Once you’re settled in, we encourage you to listen to your body by switching up positions and walking around to learn what feels best for you. You’re encouraged to eat and drink during labor. We want you to feel completely supported in your choices, so we are trained in a number of birthing techniques. 

Water Birth

Giving birth in water can help relieve pain and encourage relaxation. Each of our birthing suites is equipped with a large hydrotherapy tub for water birth featuring ozone cleaning technology, an ever-warm heating system, and underwater lighting so you can watch the special moment your little one is born. 

Natural Birth

Choosing an unmedicated birth can be a powerful and spiritual experience. Our natural birthing center specializes in a range of comfort measures and techniques to minimize pain and discomfort. Your birth team will also prepare you for an unmedicated birth at your prenatal visits by answering questions, explaining natural pain management, and inviting you to attend our childbirth classes.


Yes, a vaginal birth after cesarean (VBAC) is possible for many women! Our midwives are VBAC specialists who have guided dozens of mothers through a safe vaginal birth after previously receiving a c-section. If you’re considering a future VBAC, we encourage you to schedule a free consultation with our team to discuss your previous c-section.

Comfortable Birthing Suites

Alba Birth Center offers luxury birthing suites designed to provide a home-like environment for your labor and delivery. Each private birthing suite is equipped with a large bed and a hydrotherapy tub for water births. You’ll also have access to essential oils, candles, and warm towels, along with complete control of the room’s lighting to ensure you’re as comfortable as possible.

Immediate Postpartum Care

Right after delivery, we’ll help you get cozy with your little one and make sure you have everything you need to rest and recover. We’ll keep an eye on your vital signs, your baby’s health, and help you with breastfeeding and newborn care. But don’t worry, your baby will stay with you and won’t receive any medical procedures without your clear consent. Our team recommends delayed cord clamping to help your little one transition to breathing on their own and encourage blood volume completion, but every choice is up to you!

We also facilitate the “Golden Hour,” an hour of uninterrupted bonding and skin-to-skin contact directly after birth. This special time will be one of the most memorable and important hours of your life. We’ll be nearby in case you need anything, but these moments are just for you and your family. 

Preparing for Birth

To help you better understand and prepare for your birth experience, our midwives offer childbirth classes that are open to everyone in the community and free for patients. Our classes teach you a wealth of expert knowledge including pregnancy health tips, pain management and positioning for labor and delivery, lactation advice, and so much more! Check out our schedule of classes and reserve your spot.

Frequently Asked Questions

When should I go to my labor and delivery center?

There are a number of signs to look out for that can tell you when you’re ready to head to your chosen labor and delivery center! However, if you think you’re going into labor it’s important to first call your midwife and determine whether it’s truly time for you to come in.

Some of the most obvious signs that you’re in labor include your water breaking, which can feel like a gush or a trickle, and regular contractions that are about 5-10 minutes apart. You may also feel like your baby has “dropped” down in your uterus and experience pressure in your pelvis. 

How should I prepare for labor and delivery?

To prepare for labor and delivery you can take birthing and parenting classes, make a birth plan, and consult with your birth team to answer any questions or ease concerns. In the month leading up to your birth you should pack a bag with all the necessities you and your baby may need including clothes, medication, nursing bras, pads, a book or magazines to keep you entertained, chargers, snacks, and headphones.

What should I wear during labor and delivery?

When giving birth at Alba, we recommend wearing a nursing bra and a birthing gown. Clothes should be comfortable and easy to remove for delivery.

How long does labor take before delivery?

Timing for active labor varies from mother to mother! On average labor from start to finish can last anywhere from 2-24 hours. Often women find that their first labor experience takes longer than later births.

What happens if there is a complication or emergency during labor and delivery?

Our birth center has excellent outcomes and we monitor the health of our mothers and babies at every visit through labor and delivery to ensure every pregnancy remains low-risk. In the case that a complication occurs our midwives are trained to identify them early and quickly plan a solution. We have strong relationships with a number of hospitals and physicians in the area, which allows for seamless transfer of care. Midwives accompany mothers to the new facility and continue to provide support, security, and comfort.

What are the benefits of a water birth?

Water births have a number of potential benefits including relaxation, easier positioning for delivery, higher endorphins for natural pain management, less perineal tearing, and greater feelings of control over birth.

Can you have a natural birth after a c-section?

Depending on the previous c-section, it can absolutely be possible to have a natural birth. For many years the medical field firmly believed that a vaginal birth was not safely possible after a c-section. But today we know that delivering vaginally is considered a safe process for many women. Schedule a free consultation with our team to learn whether a vaginal birth after cesarean (VBAC) is right for you and your body.
