Our Care

Your care is provided by a team led by licensed, board Certified Nurse Midwives. Our holistic and compassionate care, water birth and family-centered birthing are why our clients rave about their experiences at Best Start Birth Center.


  • The beauty of natural birth is that your body knows how to birth your baby.
  • Evidenced-based midwifery led care is shown to improve outcomes.
  • Private rooms and birthing pools are designed to facilitate safety and comfort.
  • Alleviation of unnecessary interventions is shown to lower cesarean section rates.
  • A calming environment increases relaxation and reduces stress.
  • Natural modalities in labor such as massage, healing touch therapy, acupressure, and aromatherapy don’t have unwanted side effects.
  • Water birth is an alternative drug-free form of pain management.
  • Freedom to eat, drink, and move about as desired is shown to promote shorter labor.
  • You aren’t restricted to the bed and can choose to give birth in any position you choose.
