When a baby enters our world, she seeks connection, belonging, a gaze and an embrace filled awareness, welcome, and love. Current research is shedding more light on the amazing intelligence and capacities of the newborn, and on the decisive influence of her earliest experiences. Natural birth provides an immediate opportunity for bonding, without interference by anaesthesia, hospital routines, or unneeded surgery and recuperation. The Birth Center prepares and safeguards that unique space of bonding between parents and their newborn, both at birth and in the following weeks.Our comprehensive prenatal program supports mothers to make optimal decisions for their own and their baby's heath. Only two babies have been born at low birth weight with the Birth Center in the past twelve years, while more than one in ten babies in Taos County are born at low birth weight. We hope you will choose to support our midwives in providing families with such comprehensive and compassionatel maternity services. To make a tax-deductible donation of any size please Click here.
