Attends hospital births? All Hospitals I've attended births at all Tri-Cities area hospitals: Kadlec Medical Center, Kennewick General Hospital, and Lourdes Medical Center. I am also available for births at the smaller surrounding hospitals such as in Prosser, Sunnyside and Hermiston. Attends birth center births? All Birth Centers I would love to attend a birth at a birth center; however there are no active birth centers in the area (Columbia Birth Center near KGH went out of business July of 2008). Attends home births? Some Home Births I attend home births with a midwife present.
