Why a Birth Center?

Haven Midwifery Birthing Center respects and facilitates a person’s right to make informed choices about their health care and their baby’s health care based on the client’s values and beliefs. We are a non-profit 501c3. We honor the pregnant person and their family, as they define it, are welcome to participate in the pregnancy, birth, and postpartum period.

We care for normal low-risk pregnancy in a homelike setting. Our midwives are experienced.

We recognize the sacred environment of birth and offer respectable care. We believe childbirth is a normal life event.

We are seeking donations to offering our care to the families in the Brooklyn New York area. We anticipate to fund a space in 2021 to build our facility in the Brooklyn area. With help from the community of New York we will offer care to New Yorkers in 2023!

Help us make the option available to families.
