Welcome to the Birth Cottage
The Birth Cottage is a free-standing birth center in Milford, NH owned and operated by Adrian Feldhusen, NHCM, CPM. Located in the heart of south central New Hampshire and close to the Monadnock mountains, its quaint town atmosphere and old world charm welcome guests and birthing families.
We have been providing family-centered care for pregnancy, birth, postpartum, and well women since 2002. Our facility welcomes all people who believe, as we do, that pregnancy and birth are joyous and natural events in the life of a family. We believe that the best care for pregnancy is care that is tailored to your unique needs. Because the family is the cornerstone of our social structure, maternity care must support and promote family unity and development. Education is an essential part of quality healthcare, and families are able to assume shared responsibility for and make informed choices about their health care. We also attend homebirths throughout southern New Hampshire.
We strive to be a model for out of hospital birth, providing safe, full scope maternity care to low risk families in a home like setting. The birth center is a resource in our local and wider communities for education about the Midwifery Model of Care, the benefits of continuity of care, and the importance of restoring dignity and humanity to the experience of birth. We strive to provide low cost, high quality midwifery care throughout the lifespan.
Although the Birth Cottage is a completely independent, free-standing birth center, it is part of an integrated network of coordinated maternity care and supportive practitioners.
Our services include:
- - Midwifery and prenatal care for births at our birth center
- - Midwifery for births at home
- - Waterbirth
- - Breastfeeding Support
- - Well Woman Care

We look forward to caring for your family during this exciting time!
