The AVBC Clinic Program allows for families to take greater control over their care and finances.
Clinic maternity care is a new alternative for those seeking a minimized and cost-effective option. You still get the maternity care you need, but without all the extras of a private care program. This reduces the cost for you and puts control in your hands.
What is the Antelope Valley Birth Center (AVBC) Clinic Program?
The AVBC is now offering comprehensive and complete maternity care in a cost effective group setting!
The Clinic Program includes group prenatal discussions & private one-on-one time with your midwife. This puts you in control of your health care while still giving you the guidance and care you need.
Each Clinic Program client will have a private initial visit with their midwife at the beginning of their care, followed by a minimum of 8 group prenatal visits. Group prenatal visits include a 60-minute group discussion with up to 4 clients (partners are welcome!) and a 15-minute private evaluation with the midwife.
We only accept low risk healthy birthing people who are able to attend before 28 weeks gestation. This will ensure quality care is established before baby arrives. Please speak to the Midwife as soon as possible if you are over 28 weeks to see if you qualify for the clinic program.
Discussions will cover important maternity care topics such as nutrition, labor, care decisions & more; while being guided by group questions and needs. The private midwifery evaluations include standard prenatal care monitoring and wellness checks for both the mother and baby.
