Give birth in the comfort and beauty of the birth suites at The Retreat
Our beautiful, comfortable birth suites are available for women who prefer an alternative to hospital or home birth with our licensed professional midwives and doulas who nurture and care for them through their births. We encourage the mother to follow her instincts by laboring in private, walking, using the tub, eat and drink as she wants, listen to music, and take an active part in all decision making thought the birth process.
“When compared to conventional institutional settings, alternative settings were associated with reduced likelihood of medical interventions. Increased likelihood of spontaneous vaginal birth, increased maternal satisfaction, and greater likelihood of continued breastfeeding at one to two months postpartum, with no apparent risks to mother or baby”
“Birth Matters – It matters how one gives birth and how one is born. It is a matter of profound importance not only to the and newborn, but to all whom birth touches – to families who are celebrating the significant event, to birth workers who are caring for families through this transformative experience, and to societies that must move aside to welcome one more member of the human family. But especially, birth matters to mother and child”

“Birth is not only about making babies. Birth is about making mothers~strong, competent, capable mothers who trust themselves and know their inner strength.”
