A Birth Center for Atlanta

 

Thank you for visiting us. We are currently completing our plans for a birth center. We will begin with North Fulton Hospital, renovating individual birth center suites and a separate entrance into the hospital. We are excited to move forward, and hope to continue providing a comfortable and safe  birthing environment for the community.

As a collaborative of midwives working in the North Fulton area, we currently offer a similar birth center experience by providing a home like environment plus support and comfort for families choosing natural and waterbirths.

We serve all Metro Atlanta including but not limited to Cumming, Johns Creek, Alpharetta, Sandy Springs, Decatur and Canton.  Families come from quite a distance to birth with our midwives and have the experience they have always dreamed of.

“My husband announced the sex and cut the umbilical cord.  They plopped her on my chest…she was born at 3:17pm. Not even a full hour in the hospital and Rose was born!!  Just as I had envisioned!!  She was breast feeding within seconds of being born.  I had no perineal tear!!  How awesome!  Rose was absolutely perfect, she barely had anything on her…she was so clean.  She came out so peaceful looking straight at me!  I was so lucky to have things go the way I wanted.  But that is just it…my midwife did everything I asked and just let me labor.  That is all I ever wanted…just let my body do what it was supposed to do!!” – Stacey Thursby, VBAC/HypnoBirther.

Here at Atlanta Midwifery, we believe and recognize the normalcy of pregnancy, birth, puberty and menopause.  We strive to commit to giving women and their families care with minimal or non-intervention in the absence of complications.

Our midwives are culturally competent and familiar with complementary, alternative and holistic therapies.  They recognize the holistic approach is often utilized by families who seek to have a natural birth and water birth.

We promote the use of doulas and labor support, understanding that nothing compares to the human touch or human presence.

Atlanta Midwifery midwives incorporate evidence based practice, continuity of care, communication and guidance, and family-centered care into the care they provide.

We believe all women should be partners in their health care.

Hiring a Certified Nurse Midwife

How do we find our Certified Nurse Midwives that love serving the mothers in our practice?

Usually people interested in working with our practice already have an interest in serving mothers choosing natural birth and water birth.

The midwives apply by emailing us at info@atlantamidwifery.com or info@isismidwife.com with their resume attached.

Before considering an interview, we require that the midwife has previous labor and delivery experience, making her transition into our practice and the mother’s experience smooth.

Our midwives deliver out of North Fulton Hospital, which has a c-section rate of only 12.3%, the lowest in the State and Nationally in a hospital setting.

We pride ourselves in providing reputable referrals to doulas, childbirth educators, chiropractors, acupuncturists, massage therapists, lactation consultants and other complimentary care providers, making the mother’s and baby’s experience as gentle and enjoyable as possible.

We also support mother’s choices in where they birth, who they birth with and how they birth. We have a great relationship with the home birth community.

If you know a Certified Nurse Midwife who fits this description, please have her apply to the email addresses  mentioned above, or call for more information.

Traditionally, older experienced midwives always trained newer midwives passing on their skills and knowledge. Our midwives take pride in assisting new midwives and students, with our in office student programs. Our placements are typically referrals from some of the organizations below.
