We are a freestanding midwifery-owned established birthing center currently offering well-woman care through life, comprehensive maternity care with birth in the home & birth center setting, breastfeeding support, public and private classes, groups and seminars

 

DISCOVER a new paradigm that challenges how we provide care to women and families around birth and well-woman care through life. Discover a place where women are heard and respected; where birth is sacred and transformative; where newborns are born into gentle hands that understand the importance of connection and the inherent need for attachment to the parents; where women connect and build their village of support; where the responsibility of making a difference for our planet’s future is valued. Find yourself at Healing Passages.
