NEW NATURAL BIRTH CENTER
JEFFERSONVILLE, IN — Kentuckiana is about to get its first freestanding family birth center. On November 11, 2017, a groundbreaking and blessingway will be held at the future site of the Tree of Life Family Birth Center, 1214 Spring Street in Jeffersonville, Indiana from 10:00 AM through 1:00 PM. The event will include a chance to view the design plans for the center, tours of the existing building, refreshments and more. Beth Bary Quinkert, a Certified Nurse Midwife with Jeffersonville-based WomanCare (who recently delivered her 4,000th baby), says she is excited to be bringing the region’s first and only specially-designed family birth center to life. “After looking at a number of locations, we closed on the site at 1214 Spring Street, near Clark Memorial Hospital, in October,” noted Quinkert. “We’re hoping for everything to be completed in time for a summer 2018 opening — which means that low-risk women who are conceiving now will hopefully be able to enjoy the option of birthing in a comfortable, home-like setting outside of the hospital, and returning home in a few hours with their newborn.” Tree of Life Family Birth Center was founded by the physicians and midwives of WomanCare to provide expectant mothers throughout Kentuckiana with a warm, inviting alternative to giving birth in a hospital. For low-risk women who choose natural birth, Tree of Life will provide a warm, comforting setting that combines expert, experienced care with a relaxed atmosphere. The center will feature bedroom-like birthing suites with full or queen-size beds rather than hospital beds, a hydrotherapy tub, a living room and kitchen for family and friends, and more, all designed to create a comfortable, home-like atmosphere for delivery. A website containing more information will launch soon at www.treeoflifefbc.org. In addition to Beth Bary Quinkert, WomanCare’s team includes two other Certified Nurse Midwives (Nicole M. Sichting, RN, CNM and Alison Reid, RN, CNM, CLC); three physicians who deliver babies (Christopher Grady, MD, Ronald Wright, MD and Amanda Davenport, MD) and Nurse Practitioner Chelsae Nugent, APRN, WHNP.
