Welcome to the Midwifery Birth Center, Gateway


Our Midwifery Birth Center in the Gateway neighborhood of east Portland opened in 2017. It’s a place where people at a low risk of developing complications can receive care throughout pregnancy and birth. Yep – all in the same, lovely surroundings with a care team they know and trust. At the Midwifery Birth Center, care is led by our certified nurse-midwives. The great (and unique) thing: it’s part of WHA so if you need access to ultrasound, laboratory testing, genetic counseling or physician consultation—is all right there. And we do mean right there; the Midwifery Birth Center is located next door to our Gateway clinic.

“I am so filled with gratitude for the midwives and nurses at the Birth Center who counseled me and gave me medical advice throughout my miscarriage. I had barely been established with them as a patient before the event, but they treated me with utmost respect, care and clear guidance throughout the entire experience- and mostly over the phone and during after-hours! Thank you for making me feel heard and cared for during this challenging time.”
