|Albuquerque's Only Natural Birthing Center|
Dar a Luz is a non-profit birth center located in Los Ranchos de Albuquerque. We opened our doors on March 24, 2011.
Dar a Luz Birth & Health Center (formerly known as Full Circle Midwifery) is a freestanding, certified nurse/midwife-run women's health care and birthing center. We are accredited through the Commission for the Accreditation of Birth Centers (CABC). This means that this birth center adheres to the established national standards of excellence for service and operations as set forth by the CABC specifically for birth centers. Accreditation gives the public and clients a way to measure the quality of a birth center.
Professional licensing and accrediting agencies provide oversight of the outcomes of care in the center, as well as the physical facility. They research such things as: charts and pregnancy outcomes, client satisfaction, overall organization of the birth center as well as facility site safety.
