” I have always believed that in normal, healthy pregnancies, the baby should choose its birthday, and laboring women should be able to do what their bodies tell them to do. I am so excited to be a part of a stand alone birth center. I can now labor mamas and deliver babies in a safe,comfortable and beautiful atmosphere. Also,I plan to continue seeing women for their annual gyn visits. I look forward to meeting the women/partners who choose the Charleston Birth Place. “
