The only free-standing birth center north of Everett in Washington State, Bellingham Birth Center provides personalized, nurturing care in a homey, peaceful setting. It is a wonderful option for Bellingham residents as well as for those in the outlying areas of Ferndale, Lynden, Blaine, Maple Falls, Glacier, Mount Vernon, the Lummi Reservation, Lummi Island, and the San Juan Islands.
The midwives of Gentle Hands Midwifery practice out of Bellingham Birth Center and offer privileges to several other local midwives as well. Click on the MEET THE MIDWIVES link for additional information.
Guided by the knowledge that pregnancy and birth are normal life processes, Catriona Munro and Christine Gibbs established the Bellingham Birth Center to give expectant mothers and their families the option of experiencing the power and sanctity of birth in a safe, modern facility surrounded by their chosen family and friends and attended by a trusted licensed midwife.
The Bellingham Birth Center provides attractive birth suites with private bathrooms and comfortable furniture where women can labor without unnecessary intrusions. Each birth suite has its own luxurious corner tub for labor and/or birth. Click on the TOUR THE BIRTH CENTER link for photos of the birth center.
