The Edmond Birthing Center is a holistic birthing place and well woman center that is utilized by women seeking a natural childbirth, attended by nationally certified midwife professionals, or women in need of family planning and yearly check ups. By providing education, support, and age old wisdom, we empower women and their families, while enriching our community.
Childbirth is a natural and normal process that should be treated as such, while also being prepared for the rare unexpected special circumstance. Our role as caregiver is to support women and promote the natural process of childbirth.
It is every mother’s right and responsibility to assume an active role in her own healthcare choices. Tailoring her healthcare to her lifestyle, in respect to her specific physical, spiritual, and psychological needs.
Every mother should feel the support, security, and the openness to ask questions from her professional team, during pregnancy, postpartum, and for the rest of her childbearing years.
Education is vital to us as professionals by staying current with evidence based care and for women seeking a natural more gentle birth for themselves and their babies.
The idea started in the Fall of 2014 at a baby expo in OKC. After talking to several birth professionals in the area, there was a general consensus that more birthing centers were needed in the OKC metro area, specifically up north, helping serve the moms of Edmond and Stillwater. After 6 months of collaboration and putting together our 80 page business plan, we were ready to hire a non profit attorney and put our board of directors together. In June of 2015 we received our approval letter from the IRS making us an official 501(c)3.
After a year of applying for grants and not receiving any, the board of directors decided to dissolve the non profit. April of 2016 The Edmond Birthing Center LLC was born and Meghan Nguyen took over as Owner.
