Women’s Birth & Wellness Center

“With Women For A Lifetime”
“Childbirth is a profound experience in a woman’s life in which she is transformed into a mother and learns how to bond with and care for her offspring. For most women, it need not be a medical procedure.” Sheila Kitzinger

“A newborn baby has only three demands. They are warmth in the arms of its mother, food from her breasts, and security in the knowledge of her presence. Breastfeeding satisfies all three.”
