relcating from the northern bay area...

hello all,

my boyfriend and i are making the move back to my hometown in a few weeks. i had been looking into natural childbirthing at a birthing center up here. does anyone know of any birthing centers in the long beach area?  we are willing to prepare for a home birth too.

  • Ohhhh....  Long Beach has a lot of options... home and birth center (near, not exactly local). I'm not a real expert in that area since I don't doula that far south, but here is what I know...

    Closest birth center (I think)--all of these offer both home and birth center options.
    LA Community Birth Center (Inglewood-ish not sure neighborhood name):  http://lacommunitybirth.com/
    then
    Birth Sanctuary (Venice):  http://www.birthsanctuary.com/
    then in Whittier:
    http://www.naturalbirthcenter.com/

    And lots of midwives service that area,
    Mary Lou is close: http://www.beachcitiesbirthservice.com/
    Candace: http://www.birthgoddess.com/

    I know that there are more, I just don't have them on the tip of my tongue. 

    There is also a Hypnobabies teacher in Long Beach.  I don't know if she's a doula or not. Lorraine (sp?)http://www.innovativebirth.com/

    Make sure you get a local doula, she can fill you in on all the local gossip.  

    Good luck and have a great birth!

  • Santa Monica is a little far from Long Beach, but I have had a great experience so far with UCLA Health Care. They have The BirthPlace in Santa Monica, they totally support natural birthing.
