Maternity Care at WNC Birth Center
***Please note the changes to our orientation process as we increase our efforts to help slow the transmission of COVID-19***
Congratulations on your upcoming arrival…how wonderful!
The first step to becoming a prenatal patient at the WNC Birth Center is to visit our website and carefully review all the Frequently Asked Questions to learn about our care and whether you meet the requirements of a “low-risk” pregnancy. Unfortunately, women with a previous cesarean birth or with a chronic medical condition, such as diabetes requiring medication, do not qualify for birth center care.
After you’ve reviewed the above information, the next step to maternity care with us is to view our orientation video. You can find this on our YouTube channel. There are additional videos that explain next steps and give a virtual tour of the facility (update 3/21/20: the virtual tour is still a work in progress).
If you are transferring care from another practice, we require that you submit records from your current pregnancy for midwife review before you are able to schedule your first appointment. It is also our policy that you initiate care with us by 28 weeks of pregnancy so that we have time to review your records, schedule your appointment, and get to know you.
Thank you for your interest in our center! We look forward to working with you soon!
