Galveston Birth Center was planned with the intention of improving women’s access to alternative maternity care and the choices available to them for their pregnancies and births. In a county where birth options are limited, the existence of a birth center creates diversity in maternity care choices, not only for Galveston Island, but for many neighboring towns.
We share a vision for families on and close to the island that will provide families options for receiving prenatal and postpartum care close to home and for birthing outside of the hospital.
We chose a historic location, close to the hospital; where clients can receive the family-centered care they desire, attend classes, meet for lactation support, and birth in a comfortable environment that affords the luxuries of home while being fully equipped for an out of hospital birth.
Our facility is a 3,800 square foot Victorian-era home located on 10th Street, just blocks away from UTMB Hospital. All prenatal and postpartum care takes place in our facility or Pearland office, depending on what is most convenient for the families we serve. Our clients have the option to birth in their own homes or in our fully-equipped birth center.
Our space has been thoughtfully and carefully designed to help you feel comfortable, secure, and confident.
We offer our maternity resources in an environment chosen specifically to enhance your focus on your pregnancy journey and birthing experience.
