Birth Center Stone Oak’s philosophy of care supports the birthing families’ choices and desires for their birth. Using our Birth Center offers many options in your labor and birth process. Some of the benefits available to you include: availability and encouragement to eat and drink during labor; family based experience with family involvement welcome; laboring in a spacious soaking tub with the option of a water birth; flexibility in positions for labor and birth; and a comfortable setting where your choices are respected.

According to Henci Goer in Obstetrical Myths Versus Research Realities (A Guide to the Medical Literature), “…Birth center studies also uniformly report much lower rates of … interventions,” with “studies uniformly reporting outcomes equivalent or superior to those of comparable women giving birth in a hospital setting.

Additional benefits available to you are our vast education resources, which include childbirth classes, breastfeeding, and infant care to name a few.
