Care

We seek to provide the best care for mothers.  We want your birthing center experience to be welcoming and memorable. 

Growing Family Birth Center takes care to provide high quality, personalized services. 

 

Our Services Include:

Complete Maternity Care, Birth Center or Home Birth, Water Birth, Newborn Hearing Screen, Free Pregnancy Test, and Well Woman Care.

 

Birth Center Birth

Growing Family Birth Center was created for women and their families to receive care in an environment that is safe and comfortable. Your prenatal appointments are held in the birthing suites so you are familiar and comfortable with the surroundings when it is your time to give birth. There is space for your family and friends if you choose to have guests to support you through labor or to visit your new family after the birth.  We have no limit on guests, we just ask that anyone who is ill refrain from visiting and sharing their germs.

 

Home Birth

A home Birth is also a safe and comfortable option for women. When a woman is relaxed, her labor and birth is usually quicker and easier.  The discomfort in labor can be heightened when the environment is stressful or uncomfortable.  When in your own home, you have the freedom to move about as you wish.  The midwife and birthing team come to you, and bring you all the necessary equipment for your birth.  Often, at a home birth, you may find the Midwife in the corner knitting or reading.  She will only disrupt you when vitals need to be taken or when labor is picking up and you need support.

Water Birth

Water Birth is another popular option we provide for women. We have a newly remodeled private bathroom for laboring mothers. The beautiful tub includes a waterfall faucet for easy temperature and flow control. You can choose to have the water trickle for a relaxing sound and turn the dimmer light to whatever setting helps you relax. The birthing team keeps at a distance and only disrupts for appropriate vital checks or if you choose to have more support. We also have birthing tubs available for rent if you would like a water birth at home.

 

Well Women Care

At Growing Family Birth Center we also offer Well Woman Care (Pap Smears, Breast Exams, Lab) through 8 weeks postpartum. 

 

Newborn Hearing Screen Tests

We are pleased to be involved with a pilot program for hearing screening through the state. Our goal is to help make sure that babies born in out-of-hospital settings can get their hearing screened. We are available to serve families who have given birth in an out-of-hospital setting in Linn, Benton, and surrounding counties. There is a minimal fee of $10 for the screening test, however no one is turned away for the inability to pay.

 

 

 

 

 

Hear what our clients have to say

 
"After our initial visit and tour of the birth center my husband, Michael, and I knew we came to the perfect place for out prenatal care.
    This was my third pregnancy. My two boys were both born in a hospital and this time I wanted midwifery care. Every desire I had for my pregnancy and birth is what my midwives represent. 
    Each visit I learned valuable information and had confidence in the health of my pregnancy. I felt as if they were genuinely dedicated to the care of my growing miracle and my well being. I always feel so comfortable, welcomed, and warmed by their kindred spirits.
    My labor and birth was fairly quick, lasting 6½ hours from first contraction until my precious baby boy, Ruger, was born. I was at the birth center one hour and fifteen minutes of labor. I got into the tub not too long after I arrived. I’m sure glad I did. It was so relaxing and I was able to let my body be at ease during contractions. 
    Every woman envisions what their ideal birth would be like. Mine was absolutely incredible, beautiful, and exhilaration!
    My midwives were simply there for supporting me and witnessing my birth, not to intervene or take credit for such a natural event.
    Mrs. Debbie, Mrs. Emily, and Mrs. Evy have always put my comfort first and listened. My optimal health in pregnancy was a result of their practical, knowledgeable advice. I connected with them right away and they are more than midwives to me. They will always have a special place in our hearts.
    The superb care of Mrs. Debbie and her team is exceptional! I would highly recommend the Growing Family Birth Center to growing families. You will be ecstatic you did!
