Welcome to Magnolia

About Us

We opened Magnolia Birth Center in Spring of 2017 to offer an holistic alternative to traditional prenatal care and hospital birth. We believe that all women should have choices when it comes to healthcare. We have made a personal commitment to our MBC families to provide care and support throughout pregnancy, childbirth, and beyond.

We do not have one reason for this decision, but instead a set of obstacles. Magnolia Birth Center was opened against all odds, despite medical opposition, with no financial assistance, and no outside help. MBC is a testament to hard work, long hours, and dedication; but it came with great personal sacrifice to the midwives. The recent Covid-19 crisis created all new problems for a small business with very limited resources. Then, there is the need for a new long-term commitment for physician supervision/support.  And, we have been unsuccessful in all attempts to secure a new contract with any local physician or hospital to meet the state requirement of physician supervision.

MBC has provided care to over eight-hundred patients with over two-hundred births in the past three years without even ONE emergency transfer from our  center of a mother or a baby. The hope was that once the medical community saw the data and evidence of safe, quality, and affordable care that surely the birth center would be supported, but that has not happened. Instead there has been relentless, unprecedented political and professional opposition from the medical community since we opened our doors.

We will complete all births with due dates in June, then sadly close our doors by the end of July.
