Birth is a magical miracle, a rite of passage, especially if you get to choose where, how, and with whom you are entrusting your care.
Unfortunately, maternity care has also become a business. From rushed 15-minute appointments with OBGYN, dealing with paperwork, deductibles, to dealing with fees covered or not covered by insurance premiums, sometimes you end up feeling more like a cog in the system than a mother to be.
We believe in cultivating connections and trust. We listen deeply.
At GraceFull, we are the opposite of forms and bureaucracy. We respect your vision for your birth. From the first time you work through our doors, you have our support 24/7 through postpartum care to set a plan for success. No question is too small. Which non-toxic cleansers to use in the house? What foods are harmful during pregnancy? Videos about water birth? We’ve got you covered.
Think in-house concierge care vs. googling online for insurance information. Receiving expert midwife care from someone you trust, vs. short prenatal office visits. GraceFull birth center is a safe, nurturing place where questions are welcomed, and you are empowered to create your own birth journey.
At GraceFull, we believe transformation goes hand in hand with birth, a discovery of who you are becoming.
Some women find it easy, while others go deep into the physical, mental, emotional, or spiritual realm. Whatever your needs may be, our team of Certified Nurse Midwives and Licensed Midwives are here to expertly guide and support (without reading from a script or a list of things you are “supposed” to do).
Imagine birthing in a premium hotel environment intentionally set up to feel homey with cutting edge technology behind the scenes. (Downstairs for your family and friends if needed). During labor, there are no clocks to check, no other deliveries for your midwife to rush off to. Our midwives work holistically, attuned to the natural wisdom of your body. You are surrounded by those who love you, birthing in whatever position feels right for you.
Deep birthing tub? Birthing chair? Ice chips? Massage? You get to choose.
Post-birth, it’s all about soaking up the fabulous oxytocin. We are known in town for going slow after one of the most intimate moments in your life. You have plenty of time to bond as a family while we make sure mom is stable and baby has passed the newborn exam. Before heading out, we make sure you have postpartum instructions and other needs checked off. Your care continues after you arrive home, with check-in’s, classes, and resources available online and at the center. More than a client, we think of you as a part of our GraceFull family.
