What is a Birth Center?

What is a Birth Center?
The Intimacy of Home | The Reassurance of Medical Facility

Our Willow AZ birth centers offer the intimacy of a home-like environment in a fully equipped medical facility. While in labor, you can eat what you want, move as you want, and bring whomever you want with you. We trade traditional hospital gowns and beds for plush robes, deep soaking tubs, and queen size beds with luxurious linens. Water birth, nitrous oxide, and many other comfort measures are available to manage your labor in your own way.
