Natural Beginnings Birth Center
At Natural Beginnings Birth Center, we believe childbirth is a natural process and a spiritual journey for you and your family. Natural Beginnings is the only natural birth center in the greater Cincinnati area. We will begin deliveries at Atrium Medical Center on December 1, 2016, with specialized rooms completed in the spring of 2017.
Equipped for Natural Childbirth Support
The center offers private, home-like rooms with modern comfortable surroundings. Emergency medical care is available if complications arise and time is critical. We listen to your baby's heartbeat with a Doppler (ultrasound device) for maximum assurance of health. We encourage you to share the experience of birth with your family and friends.
In addition to our board-certified obstetricians, we have certified nurse midwives on staff who are trained to care for you throughout your pregnancy. Women can have the birth experience they desire. Our nurses are dedicated to the natural childbirth process and are experienced in natural childbirth labor support. They assist, support and guide the family using natural childbirth tools. You may choose movement, aromatherapy, massage therapy, music, positioning, labor tools, and water therapy to cope with labor and birth. Nurses encourage you to use positions for delivery that feel right to you. Each room is equipped with a large Jacuzzi® tub for hydrotherapy and water birthing options.
For postpartum care, Natural Beginnings has 24-hour rooming-in with no separation of the family unit unless complications arise. We support you in breastfeeding; therefore, pacifiers or formula supplements are not given without parental consent or medical necessity.
