There are few events in a woman’s life that will influence and transform her like the birth of a child. Its profound effect will last a lifetime and impact many of her attitudes and perceptions throughout her life. That special moment in time will give her a lifetime of memories.

What is a birth center?
The American Academy of Birth Centers (AABC) has defined birth center as a health care facility for childbirth where care is provided in the midwifery and wellness model. The birth center is freestanding and not a hospital.
Birth centers are an integrated part of the health care system and are guided by principles of prevention, sensitivity, safety, appropriate medical intervention and cost-effectiveness. While the practice of midwifery and the support of physiologic birth and newborn transition may occur in other settings, this is the exclusive model of care in a birth center.
The birth center respects and facilitates a woman’s right to make informed choices about her health care and her baby’s health care based on her values and beliefs. The woman’s family, as she defines it, is welcome to participate in the pregnancy, birth, and the postpartum period.
Here at BioBirth we are a family-centered birth center that is easily accessible and respectful of cultural differences. We want to build a partnership with you to strengthen and empower the family unit and therefore the community. You get professional licensed midwifery care in a facility designed with you in mind to feel like home.
What is a midwife?
The Midwives Alliance of North America (MANA) defines a midwife as the traditional care providers for mothers and infants. Midwives are trained professionals with expertise and skills in supporting women to maintain healthy pregnancies and have optimal births and recoveries during the postpartum period. Midwives provide women with individualized care uniquely suited to their physical, mental, emotional, spiritual and cultural needs. Midwifery is a woman-centered empowering model of maternity care that is utilized in all of the countries of the world with the best maternal and infant outcomes such as The United States, The Netherlands, United Kingdom and Canada.
BioBirth Birth Center is the vision of midwife Darlene Dorries Scrivner. In 2020 and 2021 she had to turn away over 75 women each year because she was at capacity for home births. In an effort to care for the women seeking midwifery care and to educate the next generation of midwives BioBirth Birth center began its gestation in June of 2021 with the Grand Opening on June 18th of 2022 and very first birth, in the center, early the next morning.
