The collaborative relationship between our obstetricians and nurse-midwives gives women a wide range of choices for prenatal and birthing at BID-Plymouth’s BirthPlace. You may choose traditional prenatal care with the addition of birthing, childcare and breastfeeding classes, or take part in our CenteringPregnancy Prenatal Care.
Personalized Birth Options
Our nurses and midwives are skilled at supporting unmedicated labor and birth. Choose to labor in our very large and comfortable tub or in our many in-room showers. We encourage birth to occur in the place and position of the mother’s choice and offer the option of a water birth as well for low risk women. Twenty four hour anesthesia coverage provides women with excellent pain relief in labor for both midwife and physician patients as well if they choose. We are also supportive of women choosing to labor after having had a Cesarean delivery (Trial of Labor After Cesarean/TOLAC). Our cozy BirthPlace offers one room in which to start, complete and recover from your labor (labor, delivery, recovery and postpartum/LDRP). We encourage family rooming in and offer strong breastfeeding support with lactation consultants.
