FREE PREGNANCY CHALLENGE: say bye-bye to harsh chemicals & toxins.


6 Birth Centers in Phoenix, Arizona

written by Jen Brady  |  updated January 19, 2023

Congrats on your pregnancy and considering a birth center!

Birth centers are ideal if you’re seeking a natural childbirth experience.

I went down a long road when deciding between a hospital and a birth center. During my first pregnancy, I switched care/providers three times. I’m here to help and hope this doesn’t happen to you (who has enough to think about).

Here are things to consider when choosing a birth center:

  • Care
  • Cost
  • Accreditation
  • Location
  • Reviews

The best advice I can give: narrow down to a few and then plan a visit to tour and meet the midwives. The earlier the better.

In the end I went with a freestanding birth center. It was an AABC-established birth center and CABC-accredited. All the midwives were CNMs (certified nurse midwives). It was an incredible experience for me.

All information below is accurate at the time of writing. If you notice anything inaccurate or would like to be added, please contact me.

Let’s dig into your options for freestanding birth centers in Phoenix (and surrounding areas).
