Bringing community birth back with North Alabama's first freestanding birth center.
Keep Moving Forward With Us!
We will update as needed, but are hopeful that the center will be 100% open and fully functioning March/April 2024
Follow along on our journey!
Nurse Midwifery Prenatal Care Available
Our Certified Nurse Midwife (CNM) Katrina Dial has delivery privileges at both Crestwood and Huntsville Hospital.
She has a particular passion for maternal mental health and serves as a volunteer with Postpartum Support International, a non-profit group dedicated to educating care providers and the public about mental illness during the childbearing years, and connecting moms and families to local resources.
Victory in Court!
The ADPH regulations were overturned and we are now able to move forward with applying for a license & accreditation!
Many thanks to the ACLU of Alabama, Heather Skanes, MD of Oasis Family Birthing Center, and Dr. Stephanie Mitchell of Birth Sanctuary Gainesville for standing alongside Dr. Robinson in this fight for access to birth centers for Alabama families.
Alabama Birth center became an official member of American Association of Birth Centers (AABC).
As an AABC member, we are part of a larger community of birth centers across the country that share our dedication to evidence-based, patient-centered care. We are proud to be part of this network of providers who are working to improve maternal and infant health outcomes.
Birthing Suites Complete!
Renovations will be fully completed on our beautiful birthing suites!
Birth in comfort in a home-like environment with all the things you'd need to have a safe and comfortable birth, including deep labor tubs, birthing stools, essential oil diffusers, Bose speakers, birth swings, and queen size beds.
Support Our Work
In 2020, we worked hard to raise funds from private supporters who were willing to loan the money to buy the birth center building. Now, we are asking our community to help us with renovating this space to make it a beautiful, comforting, safe space for birthing people in Alabama.
We can't do this alone! Join us on this journey to better maternity care through increased midwifery access in Alabama.
