Dear Friends of the Brooklyn Midwifery Group and Brooklyn Birthing Center,

Have you noticed our new look? Brooklyn Birthing Center has a brand new logo and an updated website! We also recently launched a new website for our provider group, Brooklyn Midwifery Group. Why the separate website? While our midwives are best known for providing prenatal care and attending deliveries at the birthing center, we wanted to highlight the fact that our midwives also offer routine gynecological care and family planning. Please visit the new Brooklyn Midwifery Group website for more information, including office hours and directions.

We are also very pleased to announce the birth of Brooklyn Lactation Group’s website! This site features detailed information about our breastfeeding support services, which are available to all new and expecting parents. The best part? We accept most insurance plans for lactation visits. Check out Brooklyn Lactation Group’s Resources page for information about insurance coverage under the ACA, legal protections for breastfeeding moms, educational hand-outs, recommended websites, and more!

Last but not least, we renovated and redecorated our birthing center! Brooklyn Birthing Center now boasts two large suites with private tubs, a cozy postpartum suite, a updated family room with a pull-out couch, and an redecorated classroom:

   

   

The original artwork adorning our walls was generously donated by the friends and family of the late Chris Twomey. Ms. Twomey’s mixed-media meditations on birth, babies, and motherhood are a perfect fit for BBC. We are honored to showcase Ms. Twomey’s work and help to preserve her legacy.
