Located in a free-standing building on the Virtua Voorhees campus, the Virtua Midwifery Birth & Wellness Center is a midwife-led practice that provides services from routine wellness to gynecologic exams and family planning, prenatal care and natural childbirth/physiologic birth. It was designed with the intent of delivering a soothing, intimate environment for pregnancy care and birth. At the time it opened, it was the only free-standing birth center in South Jersey.
The center has three private birthing suites, each with its own outdoor patio; an obstetrics clinic with exam rooms; one triage room; patient consult space; lab space; and support spaces for clinical and administrative staffs. There is also a community room, kitchen, and family seating area that has lounge furniture and children’s areas.
