Birth Center


When I was still pregnant, I posted some photos of the room birth center where I was going to have the baby.  After some more discussion with the midwives, we decided to switch to using a different room.  I was not blessed with long legs, and at a 5’2″ it was becoming clear that I was going to need a smaller tub.  The tubs in the birth center were custom built and they are VERY large because they were made to accommodate 2 people inside.  However, they had the forethought to make one tub that was slightly smaller.  We decided to use that room and that tub because I am small and we were fairly sure that I was not going to want another person in the tub with me.

Here are some photos of the room Cyprus was born in.  It knocks the socks off a hospital room any day.

I was in the bed when I took this, so it is from that angle.

The door and tub from the bed.

The bed with me not in it.

The beautiful tub where he was born.

I loved having a birth at the birth center.  They are fully set up to accommodate any medical situations.  It is a lovely space that is set up to handle the mess of birth.  They are also set up to wait on you hand and food 24 hours a day for as long as you please to stay after the baby is born.

This is the Andaluz Portland birth center.
