The Birth of Rocco

The Birth of Rocco - July 24, 2013 The birth story for our little man begins long before I went into labor. In November 2012, my husband, Jarid, and I were ecstatic to learn that we were expecting our first child. We were able to tell family and friends at Christmas time about the new addition […]

The Birth of Zane

It was a Tuesday afternoon and at 40 weeks and 5 days pregnant, I was just done. It didn’t make matters easier when we added the fact that this little guy’s big sister came about 10 days before her estimated due date and we were living with extended family, so I felt watched 24/7. Everyone […]

How Can A Doula Help Your Birth?

A doula is a person whose sole purpose is to emotionally and physically assist the birthing family during their labor time. Doula literally means “female servant” and in labor that is precisely what a doula does- she serves the family and assists them in having the BEST birth they can. So how can a doula […]

Dear Grace

On the morning of Tuesday, January 25th my sleep kept being interrupted every 15-20 minutes by cramping and a mild back ache. I had been experiencing similar symptoms for the past week and a half along with my regular Braxton hicks, but these seemed to be on a pattern. I had a feeling this was […]

A perfect birth…

Approaching 40 weeks of pregnancy I was excited and a little nervous. Not nervous about the birth, but nervous that my father, who had driven out from California with my mom, would have to fly back before I had the baby.  My first daughter was born at home at exactly 39 weeks and we had […]

Claire Marie’s Perfect Timing

Claire arrived two weeks early, but it was perfect timing. Any earlier and we would have been in the middle of moving. Any later and my mom and grandma would have missed out on the birth. My mom and grandma were in town to help us move into our new house. We had movers come […]

Switched Providers at 42 weeks!

During childhood I loved science the most. I have since been amazed at how well a mother’s body was created to grow her baby, give birth, and make the most nourishing food- breast milk. I grew up knowing that my mother had loved nursing my brother and me and this made me feel so loved. […]

Hannah’s Speedy Arrival

We loved our last-minute home birth so much we planned our second home birth with the same midwives at Edenway Birth Center even before we were pregnant! I had gone in for my usual prenatal appointment at 38 weeks. My midwives told me they wouldn’t be surprised even if she came later that day. I […]

Welcome to the Edenway Birth Center Web Site!

Our Foundationlock2 300x199 Kira’s Birth Story

Our midwifery practice is based on several foundational elements. These include:

  • Education
  • Prevention
  • Informed consent
  • Relationship
  • Family involvement

Choosing a midwife

Hiring a midwife is a commitment to a partnership lasting throughout your entire prenatal period, labor and delivery, and  postpartum care for up to 6 weeks. During this time, your midwife will work with you to facilitate a safe, healthy and fulfilling experience. We believe that education and knowledge are essential to a successful out of hospital experience. Because of this philosophy, we commonly spend an hour or more with you for your appointments and focus on informed consent, preventative nutritional counseling as well as your physical, emotional, and spiritual well being. We promote nutrition, wellness, and exercise during pregnancy to prepare your body for birth.
In order to better support our clients during their pregnancy, we refer to an excellent network of chiropractors, childbirth educators, massage therapists, physicians, and other health care providers.

Your children are welcome to attend your visits. We have numerous play areas and snacks available for their enjoyment. We encourage the involvement of the entire family during pregnancy and birth, and love helping fathers catch their own babies!

Birth Options

We have home birth and birth center birth options available to our clients.

We specialize in water birth, and find that most of our clients appreciate this option. Our birth center has a beautiful birth suite with a deep tub used for waterbirth, and our birth cottage is similarly equipped.  A soft side tub is available to rent for those desiring a water birth experience in the comfort of their own home. Water is an effective form of pain relief and relaxation. It has been dubbed an “aquadural” and women often spend at least part of their labor in the tub, even if they do not desire to deliver in the water.

In addition to traditional midwifery services, we offer:

  • Pre-pregnancy counseling (preparing your body to support a baby, building your immune system)
  • Fertility consultation (tracking your cycles, herbs to prevent miscarriage, progesterone testing & prescription referral)
  • Information on birth control methods (natural family planning, fertility awareness, barrier methods, and hormonal contraception)

Call us today to set up a free tour and consultation with our midwives. We look forward to meeting you and your family!
