Women face many decisions when it comes to giving birth, including where and how to deliver. A growing number of mothers-to-be are choosing to give birth either at home or at a birthing center with the help of midwives, as opposed to going to a hospital. Christine M. Thain, LM CPM and founder of Eastside Birth Center, joined Margaret to talk more about the midwife experience and the services offered at Eastside Birth Center. One of Christine's former clients, Annie Dumond, also joined the conversation, sharing her experience with both midwife and traditional hospital deliveries for her two children.

Eastside Birth Center is located at 14700 NE 8th St., Suite 115 in Bellevue. Phone: 425.746.5566
