Here's what people have to say about our other services, besides birth.
Education about everything baby and mom was fantastic! I went into my labor feeling very knowledgeable and prepared.
Environment was always clean, comfortable, relaxing, and friendly. I felt the care was of the highest quality.
The birth center is full of friendliness and warmth - a home-like atmosphere away from home. The environment has been very carefully, caringly thought out and well-designed. Mamas are treated like healthy individuals undergoing a joyful life experience at Dar a Luz, and all three midwives (and other staff) really take the time to talk to and engage with women. While advocating natural birth, you also offer various pain relief options, which is an enlightened combination. You offer a unique alternative to mainstream birthing options in Albuquerque, and in New Mexico - you have my admiration and appreciation for this, and for your advocacy work surrounding the birth center movement.
My husband and I often reflect that our choice to receive care and birth at Dar a Luz was quite simply one the best decisions we have made together. Our experience was more than a birth story - we have become part of a supportive, loving and empowering community that is a true cornerstone of my daily life as I learn to navigate the world of parenting.
After two very positive experiences having children at the hospital, we decided we would try Dar a Luz because we wanted to keep the option of a water birth open and loved their model of care. We had incredible care throughout the pregnancy and had an absolutely beautiful birth surrounded by the midwives and nurses who were no longer just our providers, but friends. They included our whole family in the process and always had answers to our questions and concerns. The day that our sweet baby decided to make his appearance, we were welcomed to the birth center like family. Dar a luz will always hold a very special place in our hearts.
Not only does Dar a Luz provide excellent prenatal care, but also very important postnatal services. Everything from the postnatal visits with the midwives to attending the classes and support groups helped me and my family in this life transition.
