Welcome to the
The Birth Cottage now has two completely independent, free-standing birth centers in New Hampshire. We are located in Milford and our NEW location in Salem. We offer a comfortable, peaceful, and safe place to labor and birth.
The Birth Cottage has been providing family-centered care for pregnancy, birth, postpartum, and well-body 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. 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.
The Birth Cottage offers full prenatal and postpartum care in a warm, family-friendly environment. We focus on education, true informed consent and shared decision making every step of the way.
The Birth Cottage provides full scope well-body care and services, including full gynecological services, contraceptive care, breast health, yearly physicals, lab work, and primary care.
The Birth Cottage Midwives are committed to supporting a close & healthy nursing relationship. We emphasize early breastfeeding initiation, provide unlimited support, and employ an IBCLC and have peer groups as part of our care team. We have breastfeeding rates of 99.2% at 6 weeks!
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.
We look forward to caring for your family during this exciting time!
