Alabama Birth Center was created because we believe in making a safe space for families to welcome their new babies into the world. If you share this vision, help us make it a reality!
People who desire out of hospital births have few options. There is a growing demand for midwifery care; however, this care is not readily available for those with limited resources as these services are usually paid out-of-pocket. We seek to provide a safe, welcoming environment for all persons, and to remove the barriers that have led to midwifery based care becoming a service that is unavailable to low income families.
This center will be a resource for the community, providing lactation support, childbirth education, family centered prenatal care, and training opportunities for the next generation of providers.
We believe that midwifery care in a birth center offers a wonderful option for birthing families who would like a happy medium between hospital birth and home birth. Our center offers all the comforts of home while also being easily accessible to both Crestwood and Huntsville hospitals, where our Certified Nurse Midwives hold delivery privileges.
We will offer amenities such as birthing tubs, essential oil diffusers, wireless Bluetooth-equipped speakers, birth swings, and queen size beds.
We believe in giving birth back to families -- here you can birth your way, in comfort and safety.

Alabama Birth Center builds upon the work of Dr Yashica Robinson, a board certified OBGYN who has provided reproductive healthcare in Alabama for over 14 years. Dr Robinson has passionately advocated for birth rights, offering birthing options that few other providers in Alabama offer to include VBA2C and vaginal breech birth. In 2020, Dr Robinson brought midwifery back into the hospital setting at Crestwood Medical Center after over a decade without CNMs attending births there.
This center was borne out of Dr Robinson’s passion to see the Alabama birth community thrive in a new way. Her heart is for the center to not only be accessible to privately insured families, but also to under-resourced families and those on Medicaid.
Alabama Birth Center will be one of only twelve black-owned birth centers that are open and operating in the United States.
