Beautiful stories of birth with the midwives of SF Birth Center. Find out what a birth with SF Birth Center can look like.
On the Thursday before my due date, I woke up with a dull cramping sensation in my uterus. It was the middle of July and the weather had been unbearably hot for days. My intuition throughout pregnancy had been that the baby would come early or right on time, and I was starting to feel increasingly uncomfortable and sick of being pregnant.
I knew I would go past my due date. I told myself that’s how it would go the whole time I was pregnant, and yet I could not prevent the inevitable anxiety that occurs when the due date comes and goes and your baby still seems quite cozy. My due date was only memorable because my car battery died while I was in my prenatal yoga class. I was hot and sweaty, tailgating with a sandwich and cold beverage until the tow truck man came and fixed my problem with a quick jump start. Back home I went.
Such a welcoming and safe place to give birth. I loved the one on one care and also the group prenatal classes. I always felt heard and the midwives allowed me to be in charge of the birth I wanted. Birthing my baby here was such a powerful and intimate experience and I can't wait to have my second baby here.
