The Birth Center - Affiliated Providers

At the Mad River Birth Center, we welcome your choice of health care providers and we understand that as each pregnancy differs, so do your needs. How you deliver your baby is based on your choices and the safety of your child, working under the guidance of your healthcare provider—whether you choose a physician, midwife, and/or a doula. Our affiliated providers include obstetricians, family practitioners, nurse midwives, and lay midwives to help you welcome your baby into the world.

The Birth Center nursing staff works closely with you and your health care provider to make sure you have everything you need for a safe, healthy pregnancy and delivery.
