The differences between a birth center and a hospital are vast. I have experienced both locations. For the sake of brevity these differences can be summed up by the words: “personalized care”.
Hospitals are marvels of engineering and have to process incredible amounts of people while providing care in their most vulnerable moments. They are all about the systems and have plenty of resources for those unseen circumstances.
Birth centers are focused on individuals under their care. This means small teams and smaller spaces. The team on call when you go into labor is guaranteed to have met with you before. The space can be customized to you. It is set up to be a personal experience without a lot of disruption.
If you are an individual that needs to know there are backup plans to the backup plans, and systems make you feel zen, then the hospital is the way to go. If you want to know the team you are working with and have a setting that allows a calm space for your birth, then a birth center will be a better fit. Choose the environment that will support your needs and wants.Emmy Howard
