Unique to the birth community, Sage-Femme Midwifery offers hospital-based birth care with the personal approach of the homebirth midwifery model. Currently, Sage–Femme enjoys admitting privileges at the hospital-based birthing center, The Burdett Care Center, in Troy, NY. Tours can be arranged by calling (518) 271-3393.
You can also learn more about the Burdett Care Center on their website: www.burdettcarecenter.org.
For your planned hospital birth, Sage-Femme will help to ensure that you are an informed consumer and aware of your rights in the hospital setting. Birth plan development during the prenatal period will include options for intermittent monitoring, use of a birthing pool, and a review of comfort measures for labor and birth including natural and pharmacological pain relief. When appropriate, your midwife and doula will meet you at your home to provide comfort measures and guidance for the early labor period. Together, you and your birth team will decide when the best time is to make the transition to the hospital. Upon arrival, we will be greeted by staff members that are familiar and supportive of the Sage-Femme model. The nurses and technicians at Burdett will become valuable birth team members and help to implement your birth plan.
