Why Home Birth?

In a time when many people are seeking alternatives to the unnecessary medicalization of childbirth, and the limited ability to make informed decisions about labor and birth care in the hospital, it's only natural that you might be considering a home birth!
The midwifery model of care promotes birth as a normal, social event in a childbearing individual's life, and the work of that individual, not the work of the professionals that person hires. A great way to center that event is by providing a comfortable, peaceful environment for the physiologic process of labor and birth to unfold. 

About Gentle Birth Care

If you are looking for a practice with highly skilled clinicians who work from a place of love and respect for birth and the childbearing person, consider Gentle Birth Care. Your midwives will provide evidence-based care, offering shared decision making, and informed consent and refusal. 
Gentle Birth Care is a midwife-owned practice that has been thriving since 2009. Our team of Certified Nurse Midwives and Midwife Assistants bring over a combined century of experience and passion for family-centered care. As a group practice, we are able to make home birth safer and more accessible to families across the Chicagoland area.
Our multidisciplinary team of Illinois-licensed birth professionals partners with our clients to promote joyful, safe birth in the comfort of the client's home -- whether in the water or on land!
Additionally, we enjoy providing continuity of care beyond the childbearing cycle by offering the full spectrum of reproductive health services, from preconception care to well gynecologic care, to family planning and menopause management.
