Philosophy

The Holistic Birth Center at UH St. John Medical Center Family Suites has been developed to provide a familiar, warm, homelike environment where families can experience birth.

The staff of nurses, physicians and midwives are committed to being partners with the childbearing family to provide a safe and satisfying birth experience focusing on birth as normal. The homelike qualities and welcoming, reassuring and professional nature of the staff embody the idea that birth is normal, yet emotionally powerful.

Women and families have the right to seek care that is medically safe and recognizes and respects the individual's physical, social, spiritual, psychological and economic needs.

Women and families have the right and responsibility to assume an active role in their own health care.

Education is an essential part of quality health care. Only when women and their families have real access to information are they able to assume an active role.

The birth center program of care is designed in the wellness model and guided by principals of prevention, sensitivity, safety and appropriate medical intervention.

When birth is integrated into life as a family event, the family is strengthened.

Our goal is to nurture a woman's sense of personal strength and self confidence so that she may experience her own birth with dignity and empowerment.
