Birth Centers

Andaluz has two birth centers to serve families in the Portland and Yamhill County area. Both birth centers offer beautiful and comfortable birth rooms with queen size beds, large showers, deep tubs for labor and birth, and of course safety equipment such as oxygen and medications to use if needed.  Each birth center has a kitchen so you can make a cup of tea or enjoy a meal, a lending library and classroom area, and free wi-fi. Pain management options are offered such as nitrous oxide (also called laughing gas), and birth balls or birth stools to help you find comfort during your labor. Each room has a diffuser with the option of using essential oils such as clary sage, lavender, and basil which can provide a relaxing atmosphere and the benefits of aromatherapy during your labor and birth.
