Gynecological & Menopausal

The Birth Center is more than just a place for pregnancy and birth. We offer a full range of GYN services including annual exams, Pap smears, STD testing, birth control, and more.


Pregnancy & Birth Services

For low-risk pregnancies, labor and birth does not need to occur in a hospital setting. Our beautiful birthing rooms were designed to be comfortable and provide a relaxing and safe environment for low-risk pregnant patients. We offer birthing tubs for use in labor and/or birth.


Lactation & Postpartum Care

Our International Board Certified Lactation Consultants (IBCLC) provide a full range of lactation services to assist with lactation-related infant feeding issues. Our postpartum care includes more than just the standard six week follow-up visit.

Education & Community

We offer a full menu of classes and workshops for anyone in our community, not just patients of The Birth Center. We pride ourselves on being a community hub reproductive healthcare throughout the lifespan.
