The Sacred Power of Natural Birth

The opportunity to welcome a baby onto this planet surrounded by love not only celebrates the beginning of a new life, but also celebrates the birth of a mother and of a family. Midwifery care combined with medical care allows this experience to be protected in a safe, intimate and beautiful environment at Babies by the Sea Birthing Center. We approach pregnancy and birth as a collaborative team of midwives and other healthcare providers using evidence based decision making tailored for each family. Babies by the Sea Birthing Center, Encinitas exists for the woman, her baby and her family. Rather than championing a particular provider type, we champion the sacred power of natural birth, the rights of women and the importance of honoring those very first moments of life. Midwives and Physicians each bring a perspective and a knowledge base that, when combined, provide the greatest opportunity to experience the transformative power of natural birth.
