Since 2006 we have helped thousands fall in love with their birthing journey while providing advanced-level clinical care. More than birth and delivery, we are changing the landscape of birthing with radical transparency, and by connecting people to information and education.
Whether you want to birth at home, at the birth center, or hospital, our Certified Nurse Midwives and Licensed Midwives are here to support you every step of the way.
Located in Silver Lake, GraceFull is Los Angeles’s first Accredited Birthing Center.
Our birthing center is filled with cutting edge technology and everything you’d want from the best hotel suite. Extra-large birthing tubs, state of the art birthing swings and chairs, Nitrous Oxide should you need a puff for pain relief, every last detail has been accounted for to create a nurturing space for your baby to be born.
Globetrotting influencer? Living in Paris for the next 6 months? We are available worldwide for births outside Los Angeles with our GraceFull enhanced care.
We’ve put our hearts into creating a holistic environment in which anyone can & should have access to universal birth options.
From community classes in our loft-style classrooms to online courses, it’s available with the click of a button.
Question about back pain, water births, and anything in between, we understand knowledge is critical (including finances). Yes, finances! Wrestling with insurance can be frustrating, we work with billing, so you don’t have to. Our onboarding team works with your insurance, so you know exactly where you stand.
At GraceFull, we take care of all the details, so you can focus on the magical journey of birthing, discover you, and birth your truth.
Coronavirus update: At GraceFull, nothing is more important than your health and safety. We continue to follow universal precautions, including hand sanitizer stations throughout the center, each room sanitized with hospital grade green cleaner and anti-viral wipes before and after each prenatal and birth, tubs with an anti-bacterial coating. Our filtered water goes through a UV filter that is both anti-bacterial and anti-viral. Our team of Licensed Midwives, is standing by to advise you on how to keep your immune system healthy, with nutrition and herbal recommendations. Know that you are not alone, we are in this together, to keep you and your baby safe.
INFOSESSION – If you would like to see if GraceFull is the right fit for you and your growing family, join us on Sundays
If you are curious about our care, the first step is to sign up for the info session. We hold an info session with our owner, Elizabeth Bachner, (almost) every Sunday 1:30-3:15pm, virtually over Zoom where she explains the difference between home, hospital and a birth center birth, our care, how we work, who our midwives are, and our philosophy. This Info Session is the starting point for our care. Because it is on zoom, feel free to be in your car, on a walk or wherever you need to be to listen.
Once you sign up for the Sunday Session you will automatically receive an email from our Client Concierge within 72 hours with instructions on how to fill out our insurance form and also sign up for a 1 on 1 consultation with our Client Concierge. During that private session Christa will discuss your individual costs based on your insurance and answer any detailed questions. If you would like to see our pre-recorded virtual tour CLICK HERE. In-person tours can be scheduled after attending our FREE info session.
Take our Five Senses Quiz to Customize Your Birth Plan!
There is no book, website, or social media influencer who knows you and can tell you what to do in labor to experience efficient labor. Each birth, with each different child, will be its own unique experience, as unique as the family you are creating. To have a Grace-Filled birth, it is important to not only know how to ask for support but to know yourself as well. This quiz will help you get to know who you are in relation to the 5 senses or somatic body. Everyone responds differently to the somatic body (or the 5 senses) of See, Hear, Smell, Touch, and Taste. Our somatic body can either support us to feel safe in labor so we can open up efficiently or trigger us, and we will find ourselves closed off, shut down, and our labor will stop. This quiz finds out who you are and what senses should be emphasized and recommendations for what to make sure you pack for the hospital or birth center or have nearby in your home for your best birth experience.
