Birth Center Birth
Our Birthing Center was created to offer New Jersey families an alternative to natural childbirth. They combined the comfort and privacy of a home-birth with the safety and security of a hospital birth. Our Birthing Center empowers women to create the birth experience they desire in a safe and warm environment. Our Birthing Center delivers care in a home-like setting where trained practitioners will provide family-centered care to healthy pregnant women.
Our Birthing Center is a proud partner of Avalon Midwives & Avalon Wellness Center, both located in the same building as Our Birthing Center, creating a one-stop-shop for everything pregnancy, birth and baby.

What People Are Saying
"After having birthed in a hospital and at home, I was very happy to experience the best of both worlds with the birthing center. I was able to deliver in the spacious tub and enjoy immediate skin to skin with my baby without interruption. Avalon midwives respected all my wishes and treated me with tenderness and compassion. The birthing center staff was focused and the facility was much more private and comfortable than a hospital. I would recommend Our Birthing Center to anyone looking for an alternative to the hospital."- Vanessa W.
