Here at the San Antonio Birth Center we love birth center births, but we are passionate birth in every setting, including home birth! Some families find the idea of birthing in their own space, surrounded by all that is familiar – even their pets and/or other children – really appealing. One of the most repeated phrases we hear from home birthing mamas is, “I didn’t have to get in the car!” We bring all the supplies and equipment that we have available at the birth center to your space, even a birthing stool. You may labor and birth in your own tub or set up one of our soft portable tubs in whatever room you choose. We have helped babies enter the world in dining rooms, bedrooms, kitchens, nurseries, living rooms, and even outside!
There are several additional things to consider when planning a home birth over birthing at the birth center. For example, when considering a home birth one would live within a 30 min drive of the SA Birth Center, AND within a 20 min drive (even in traffic) from a hospital that provides maternity services. All of our midwives love home births and would be happy to answer any questions you may have and help you determine if this is a viable option for you in your current season of life.
Welcome your little one into the world in the comfort of your home.
