Having a baby at the birth center is often seen as the best of both worlds!
Alma Midwifery is located in a lovely hundred-year-old, three story home in inner South East Portland. We have four beautiful birth rooms with birth tubs, large comfortable beds, and postpartum doulas to nurture you through your stay.
Women choose to birth at Alma instead of at home for a variety of reasons. Sometimes it is the appeal of the postpartum pampering, sometimes it is an insurance billing choice, and sometimes it’s the fact that being at Alma is more appealing than their particular home situation. Often, mothers of older children love the idea of having a “babymoon” at the birth center to enjoy some special alone time with their newborns.
