The SB Birth Center is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing complete midwifery care to women with low-risk pregnancies who seek a safe alternative to birth in the hospital.
The Birth Center provides a comfortable, family-friendly environment and offers private rooms with queen beds and birthing tubs, large bathrooms with walk-in showers and a fully-equipped kitchen.
Women are attended by the same midwives throughout their pregnancy, labor, birth, and postpartum, assuring the highest-quality continuity of care.
The Santa Barbara Birth Center midwives are licensed and certified women’s health care practitioners, trained to care for healthy women with low-risk pregnancies. They work in consultation and collaboration with obstetricians, neonatologists and pediatricians. We have a wonderful group of doulas and birth assistants to complete our team.
The midwifery model of care focuses on client education, informed consent, evidence-based practices, and time-intensive, individualized prenatal care. Midwives have very low rates of medical intervention and cesarean sections.
