What is a freestanding birthing center?

A freestanding birthing center is a facility not associated with any hospital, university or OB/GYN practice.  It is designed to provide professional, cost-effective prenatal, birthing and postpartum care.

Mother and baby usually remain at the center for approximately two to six hours after a normal delivery before returning home.
