North Shore Birth Center

Holistic Pregnancy and Birthing Care for Women 

Please Note: The North Shore Birthing Center is not accepting new patients.

NSBC opened its doors in 1980 as the first free-standing birth center in the Northeast. The midwives of North Shore Birth Center provide holistic, individualized health care to women with low health risks.

Prenatal Care and Childbirth

We carry our philosophy of individualized care into every pregnancy and birth, taking into account your health history as well as the hopes, fears, and unique circumstances that affect your experience.

Our offerings include:

  • The NSBC space is quiet, peaceful, and family-friendly, with full access to a kitchen, living room, outdoor garden, and deck. Midwives will support the physiologic progression of labor and non-pharmacologic methods are used for pain management.
  • Birth at Beverly Hospital, include midwives who are committed to the same low-intervention approach to labor and birth. Nitrous oxide and epidural are available.
