Natural Childbirth at The Birthing Inn

Scheduling and Sign Up

Step 1 – Set your registration appointment

We accept registrations for births once you’ve reached 36 weeks. At your registration, we’ll walk you through the process and answer all your questions, and we’ll give you all the information you will need to contact and hire a Midwife with “birthing privileges” at The Birthing Inn.

Schedule your registration appointment

Step 2 – Schedule your care with a Midwife

The midwives listed on the page linked below are the Midwives with “birthing privileges” at TBI. Be sure to ask the Midwife you would like to work with whether they accept your insurance policy, if you have one.

The receptionist at TBI does not schedule appointments for the privileged Midwives, with the exception of Susan Sherwood, LM, CPM.

Why do I need to sign up with both The Birthing Inn and a Midwife?

The Birthing Inn is the birthing facility (the home where you will give birth), and the Midwife is your personally selected care provider. TBI does not hire Midwives, TBI only grants birthing privileges to carefully selected Licensed Midwives and Certified Nurse Midwives.

Think of it in the same way you think about a primary care physician and a hospital. You choose the provider you prefer for your family, and you also choose your hospital based on your needs and the facility itself. The physician has “admitting privileges” to hospitals, but the physician is not employed by or chosen for you by the hospital. In the same way, Midwives have “birthing privileges” at The Birthing Inn, but the Midwife is not employed by or chosen by The Birthing Inn.
