Birth Center Registration

Register at any time before your due-date window.  The earlier in your pregnancy, however, the better, so that you have plenty of time to come to one of the twice-monthly orientation and tour sessions. 

You may return your registration paperwork to us via mail, email, fax, or you may upload to our secure, encrypted location here or drop off your registration paperwork when you come in for an orientation tour.
