"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".

❤️ Understanding your birthing options in a time of uncertainty ❤️ The Birthing Inn has seen a recent uptick in expectant families researching alternative birthing options during the time of the novel Covid-19 virus. We’ve also heard a lot of confusion about the difference between Freestanding, Independent Birth Centers, like The Birthing Inn (www.TheBirthingInn.com) and Alongside Maternity Center / Hospital Owned Birth Centers. We want to help inform our community of those differences, so they can make the best choice for the little ones and families. Freestanding, Independent Birth Centers (CABC Certified) ▪️Independent birth centers are facilities designed to provide care to women with low risk pregnancies who want a choice between a hospital and home birth and want to participate in their own care; they are separate from and not owned by hospital organizations. They have also established partnerships to work collaboratively with near-by hospitals and physicians for mothers who need their services before or during labor, or after childbirth Alongside Maternity Center or Hospital Owned Birth Center ▪️ Hospitals often call their labor and delivery units “birth” or “birthing” centers, especially after they remodel their facilities to be more “home-like”; they may also hire midwives to provide care. Hospitals are larger, often with protocols and less flexibility, and a greater focus on efficiency If you’re feeling uncertain about giving birth in a hospital setting, we encourage you to look into using our facility and the midwives who have privileges here. ▪️Susan Lawler & Hannah Poe @ allaboutbirthmidwifery.com ▪️Neva Gerke & Tiffani Hoffman @ laochmidwifery.com ▪️Lisa Stotts @ Mavenmidwife.com ▪️Ashley Jones @ Flytruemidwifery.com ▪️Niki Coraggio @ Gigharbormidwifery.com ▪️Kay Jackson @ offthegridmidwifery.com To find a list of WA State midwives and Freestanding Birth Centers, check out the Midwives’ Association of Washington State (MAWS) https://maws.wildapricot.org/directory If your interested in more information about your different birthing options, check out following websites: Commission for the Accreditation of Birth Centers (CABC) (https://www.birthcenteraccreditation.org) American Association of Birth Centers (AABC) https://www.birthcenters.org/page/BirthCenterFAQs) Please like and share this post with all your expectant friends and family!
