"The level of care I received from Susan & her team was extraordinary. She really took the time to get to know me and what I needed in this birth experience, and executed that on delivery day. I felt safe and confident in her expansive knowledge. Susie at the front desk is also delightful, warm and eager to help."

"Niki is a wonderful midwife. She is a good listener and explains things in a way that makes you feel valued and part of the birth team. I had a less then idea birth with my first, and my second didn’t go as planned either, but Niki included me in the decision making and was supportive to me the entire pregnancy. I wouldn’t have a baby with anyone else!"

I had the most amazing experience with Lisa Stotts! Gosh, I just love her. I knew I wanted to have my baby at TBI so I looked through their providers and Lisa immediately caught my eye. I called her and left a message and she called me back right away and scheduled an appointment with me right then and there. She was so loving and sweet, she gave me a hug after every appointment, which I loved.

I can’t even begin to express how grateful I feel to have found Kay. I’ve never felt able to truly be myself with a healthcare provider and Kay accepted my weirdness and anxiety every step of the way. We will never forget her calm, patience, and incredible stamina (through days of induction and an eventual c-section which was far different than our birth center plans) that brought our son into the world. Her incredible empathy and skill guided us through one of the most intense experiences - and she’s a laugh riot to boot. If you’ve felt ignored, dismissed, or disconnected from care before, make an appointment at Off the Grid. "We adore her".

I have had a wonderful and welcoming experience at The Birthing Inn. The staff has continuously answered my questions, and always stayed friendly. Not to mention how gorgeous the facility is. A lot of love has been poured into this place.

We share with great sadness that the infamous childbirth warrior and educator Alma Pisano is in the final stage of her battle with pancreatic cancer. Alma has been a cherished life-long member of the childbirth community and champion for birthing women everywhere. She has dedicated her life to guide and educated familes through her childbirth classes and her services as a Doula. She’s held space in the quiet hours and empowered women to embrace the power and awe of birth. She is a bright and glorious light that makes the tough times easier and the best times even better. She has touched the lives of thousands of families and shaped our birth community in ways that will live beyond her. Although we can never compensate for the invaluable hours of love and dedication to families, we've been given an opportunity to return some of that kindness and generosity back to Alma before she passes. It is Alma’s final wish to feel the ocean breeze on her skin. Alma and her family will be visiting the coast toward the end of October and The Birthing Inn invites you to send your well wishes with her. In this coming week, TBI will be collecting cards, words of love, and any monetary donations for her final journey. Please help us in making Alma’s final earthside moments filled with the same light and love she brought to so many. Drop off any cards or items to The Birthing Inn during regular business hours or send an email to with your well wishes. With Love, The Birthing Inn
