For moms-to-be with a low-risk pregnancy who would like a more natural birth experience, a birth center could be a great option. • We’ve consulted with the American Pregnancy organization to give you a few pro’s and con’s of birthing centers, so you can make the best decision for you and your growing family. • Pros: * A team of health care providers that can include nurse-midwives, direct-entry midwives, or nurses working with an obstetrician * A facility that may be free-standing, on hospital grounds, or inside a hospital * Relaxed and warm atmosphere • Cons: * In many birth centers, the only equipment is oxygen and catheters used to clear a baby’s airways if necessary. * No induction * No drugs for pain relief except local analgesic to suture tears in the perineum • If you are expecting twins, diabetic, or have preeclampsia a birthing center might not be for you. Consult with your healthcare provider, and do your research!
