a safe, comfortable environment where birth is normal and women's health can thrive.
Over the past five years, we have been privileged to assist in the birth of over 1000 babies. In spite of many challenges along the way, the WNC Birth Center and its Board of Directors have worked tirelessly to ensure the midwifery model of care and access to options for birth for families in our region.
The birth center facility will close on July 20th, 2021. We will continue to provide birth center births up until that date and will work to transition our patients over the coming weeks. We have navigated incredible challenges and could not have made it this far without our dedicated staff, patients, families, and community supporters. However, we are a very small team, and our current obstacles have made it impossible for us to continue in our core mission.
We are grateful that you entrusted your care to us and allowed us to be part of your lives. It has been an honor to be a part of the WNC community, and to be part of your lives. You can read the full statement here, and learn about transferring care here.
