Galveston Birth Center For Comfortable, Accessible Maternity Care

Congratulations, you’re pregnant! Deciding what kind of birth you want is so important as a mama, as well as finding a great place to offer you postpartum support!

About Galveston Birth Center

Located at 712 10th Street in Galveston, TX, Galveston Birth Center was created to provide accessible alternative maternity care. The team discusses the choices available to moms for their pregnancy journey. In a county with limited birth options, the presence of a birth center encourages diversity in maternity care options, not only for Galveston Island but many neighboring towns. They share a vision for local and neighboring families that will provide options for prenatal and postpartum care nearby and birthing outside of the hospital.


Galveston Birth Center’s facility is a 3,800-square-foot Victorian-era home on 10th Street. The center is just blocks away from UTMB Hospital. Their facility or Pearland office house all prenatal and postpartum care, depending on what is most convenient for the families they serve. Their clients have the option to give birth in their own homes or their fully-equipped birth center. They offer maternity resources in an environment explicitly chosen to enhance your focus on your pregnancy journey and birthing experience. Galveston Birth Center also offers complimentary consultations for those inquiring about home and birth center options, including a tour of their facility. 

All consultations and tours are private; you will not be touring the facility or meeting the midwives in a group setting. These individualized consultations provide an opportunity for you to ask questions. Additionally, they will share valuable information regarding the midwives, their services, and birthing options.
