|Tools for this tag
A birthing centre is an outpatient healthy facility primarily operated by midwives, where normal, spontaneous baby delivery by pregnant mothers is facilitated. It may also provide additional maternity services on pre-natal and post-natal care, and care of new-born babies.
A birth centre presents a more home-like environment than a hospital maternity ward, typically with more options during labor: food/drink, music, and the attendance of family and friends if desired.
