Due to concerns surrounding COVID-19, we are temporarily moving all tours to a virtual format. Once you have registered, you will receive an email about accessing our information session from the comfort of your own home. You will still have the opportunity to learn more about the birth center and have all your questions answered by one of our midwives via video chat. You can also see a video tour of all the birth center rooms on our Facebook page.
Would you enjoy prenatal appointments that last for up to an hour, addressing all of your concerns? Would you like to give birth in the position of your choosing surrounded by people who support you? Would you like to eat and drink during labor? Does laboring and birthing in the water sound like something you might like to do? Come to an orientation to see if our birth center is right for you.

Lactation Basics Class

As a client of Nine Short Months Birth Center, you have the opportunity to attend a session of the Breastfeeding Basics Class, presented by In Home Lactation Specialists. This class covers everything that you need to know in order to feel confident and prepared to breastfeed your baby. We will go over what to expect in the first 24-48 hours, the basics of positioning and latch, troubleshooting some common problems of the first couple weeks, and ways to involve your partner in feeding your baby. The cost of this class is included in your birth center fees. Looking forward to working with you soon!
