We are excited to bring birth options to Grand Rapids with the first Out of Hospital Birth House! Why we call it a Birth House vs a Birthing Center- We created a comfy, cozy, homelike atmosphere for moms, partners, and babies, we did not want to be confused with the “Birthing Centers” at area hospitals. We are what most would consider a “Out Of Hospital Birthing Center” but that is a mouth full. So to simplify things we refer to it as The Birth House. The Birth House has 2 complete birth suites; as well as a small, European style kitchen. Located at 802 Merritt, the house is centrally located within a few minutes of Spectrum Hospital downtown and the Helen DeVos Children's Hospital. We are currently taking clients for all of 2019. It's never too late to have the birth you dream of, so contact us for a meet and greet!
