Construction update! Due to weather-related delays, the Midwifery Birth Center will now open on February 13th, 2017.

We couldn’t be happier to announce the opening of WHA’s Midwifery Birth Center; the first out-of-hospital birth option in Portland integrated within a medical group practice offering the full spectrum of midwifery and OB/GYN care.

The Midwifery Birth Center opens in February, 2017 with our first births anticipated in April. We will be located next door to our new Gateway office at the corner of Washington Street and 106th Avenue in southeast Portland.

Prenatal care and support for natural labor and birth will be provided by our experienced and caring team of certified nurse-midwives, who are committed to helping women and families have safe, peaceful and satisfying experiences in a respectful space dedicated to natural, unhindered childbirth.

The Midwifery Birth Center will welcome transferring patients up to around 28 weeks of pregnancy. For more information, visit the Midwifery Birth Center website and use the contact form to get in touch.
