Campaign Story

What is a birth center?  A birth center is a freestanding facility where families can give birth under the excellent care of a midwife, receiving whole mind/body/spirit care with a belief that birth is a normal family event and is treated as such, unless emergencies arise.  Birth centers serve all women with GYN care, mental health care, nutrition, and fertility care in a holistic manner.

 

Why do women prefer midwifery care?  There is a significant lack of birth options in Cheyenne.  A significant percent of women are choosing to travel up to 100 miles to Colorado to give birth in places where they will receive midwifery care.  These women choose to travel long distances in extreme weather conditions because it is THAT important to receive this high quality care.  Women are also traveling to Colorado frequently to receive well-woman and fertility care.  Many women would would choose this kind of care are not able to travel and thus feel like they have no other choice than what is currently available in Cheyenne, and often have negative birth experiences.  This affects mom’s mental health, increases C-section rates, decreases breastfeeding rates, all of which impact our community as a whole. This influences families as they contemplate moving to Cheyenne, staying in Cheyenne, and by having limited birthing options, can be seen as a negative for our community.

A birth center in Cheyenne can improve this!  We can provide quality care, improve maternal and infant health in significant ways, be sustainable, and improve the community for everyone! Earthside Birth and Wellness Center is transitioning to a theoretical concept to a concrete living, breathing entity!  We know the need is there.  We have talked to hundreds of people in Cheyenne and the surrounding areas and what we hear over and over is “It’s about time!  I wish this were here when I was having babies!  We NEED this!”  We are listening!

We NEED YOUR HELP!  We are in the process of hiring excellent midwives who have a heart for Cheyenne, a heart for serving, and a heart for big change.  We are working with the city and state for licensing, zoning, and building codes.  We are scouring the city for the perfect facility.  We are applying for grants for equipment and more.  We believe we can build a profitable, sustainable birth center that will serve Cheyenne for decades if we do it right!  This effort will be worth it and it takes money to launch!  We can use all the help we can get!

Here are a few of the costs we have upfront:

Equipment and Supplies, beautiful birth rooms with big tubs, state licensing fees, CABC accreditation fees, facility lease, enticements for great midwives to join our team, furniture, and more!
