Nine Short Months Birth and Community Wellness Center

You know that a hospital birth does not feel right to you, but you aren’t completely sold on giving birth at home either? You will love our new natural birthing center at 525 Southfield Rd in downtown Birmingham, Michigan. Ample parking and just a few blocks away from the lovely downtown shopping and restaurant district makes this a perfect place to walk off an early labor. When its time to have your baby, you will be in one of our rooms with spacious and comfortable beds. You can eat and drink while you are in labor and give birth in the position of your choosing. You will also be able to go into one of our birth tub rooms to relax comfortably or even give birth in the water. The choices are yours, and our deluxe suite is truly beautiful. Call 248-792-3322 to schedule a tour, today.
