    AMAZING EXPERIENCE! I had my daughter at the birth center 5 months ago, and all the midwives I met along the journey were amazing, intelligent, knowledgable, experienced, empathetic.. I can go on and on. Although my labor wasn't what I had pictured in my mind (as a first time mom, who's is) my labor was everything I had hoped for. If I decided to have any more children, I will, without hesitation, head back to the birth center. They really felt like family in the end.

    I had both of my children in the comforting, home-like environment of the Birth Center. The midwives and nurses who guided us from the early weeks through to birth were compassionate, reassuring, and highly professional. I wouldn't want to have a child anywhere else in Philly. This is home.

    I was terrified of giving birth, much less doing so without pain meds... When I discovered TBC, I felt empowered and capable of having my baby without medical interventions. Whenever I walked through the door, it felt like home. The midwives never rushed my appointments and always took the time to hear my concerns and give me a pep talk. I conquered my fears and felt like I could do *anything* thanks to the midwives and nurses at TBC. And the moms I've met through the TBC community are some of my closest, dearest friends.

    I loved the care I got throughout my pregnancy at the Birth Center. Every time I stepped into an exam room to see one of the midwives I felt like I was among friends and totally at ease. The Birth Center's midwives are up-to-date on the latest evidence in birth practices and I felt totally safe in their hands. When my son came, I had back labor (which can be painful and make labor progress slowly), and they were able to use a non-pain-medication intervention (subcutaneous sterile water) with no side effects to the baby or me which was immediately effective in reducing my pain! I will never forget how empowered I felt after giving birth to my son.

    I gave birth to my son in the yellow room at the Birth Center and had a wonderful, peaceful experience. My birth there was so lovely, I ended up becoming a doula and childbirth educator in the years following! The Birth Center offers respectful, patient care and allows families to make decisions about their birth experience. I highly recommend it.

    There are no words that can properly express how much I love the birth center. We gave birth to our daughter in the yellow room and the midwives and nurses made it feel like we had a home birth. We still get so excited to see our midwives and I love going for any appointment I have! IT is one incredible place!
