Since 1987, the BirthCare midwives have provided personalized prenatal and gynecologic care. We attend your birth at your home or at our center. We work with women experiencing their first pregnancy, and families that have given birth before. We share responsibilities, information and encouragement with to promote mind, body, spirit health.
We can begin working with you for gynecologic care, including breast checks, pap smears, contraception, and pre-conception planning; or we can start during your pregnancy with prenatal appointments.
Your BirthCare midwife guides and supports while you labor encouraging you to move about freely surrounded by the people you choose. This makes it easier to promote and cope with efficient labor. If problems occur during pregnancy, labor or birth, we work in consultation with physicians and midwives at hospitals close by.
If you are a healthy woman enjoying a healthy pregnancy, a planned birth at home or in a birth center with professional attendants has been statistically proven safe for you.
Our office is conveniently located in Old Town Alexandria near King St. Metro Station.
