With the closing this year of Island Life Midwifery, the midwives at the Greenbank Birth Center decided, after 25 years of serving San Juan Islands families from their office in Anacortes, it was time to take the boat.
They found a beautiful space at 25 Nichols Street in Friday Harbor and have been seeing clients since September 1, 2019. The Greenbank Birth Center has worked with more than 600 families since they began serving San Juan County in 1993.
The Greenbank Birth Center is located on Whidbey Island. The beautiful facility is set in five acres of woods and is 15 minutes from local hospital services, should the need arise. It is a large stand alone building; offering complete privacy during your birth. There is a large birthing tub and Nitrous Oxide for pain relief if requested.
Whidbey Island has many options for families if they choose to come over prior to birth. There are many short-term rentals and some camping facilities. Greenbank Birth Center is located in the center island, so it is easily accessible to both ends of the island.
They offer a free, no pressure Meet & Greet as a time to ask questions and see if Greenbank Birth Center is a fit for your needs. Please call 360.678.3594 or visit website: www.greenbankbirthcenter.com for more information.
