Attends hospital births? All Hospitals My first birth was in a hospital, and I know (from that, and from long experience with my students) what can be done to achieve the optimum birth in a medical setting. Attends birth center births? Some Birth Centers I've given birth in a birth center myself, and have spent time in both of the currently active centers in eastern MA. Only the Cambridge Birth Center, however, is really within easy travel distance. Attends home births? Any Home Birth As a student (homebirth) midwife, I especially love home births!
