My sister is a midwife and is opening a birth center soon. She found a beautiful old house but needs a good name. The name of her midwifery practice just doesn't sound that snappy to me for a birth center. I figured you all would have some great ideas -I loved all the suggestions for granolamom's cafe.

Let em' rip! Thanks! Alison

Good luck~

Ok, here are a bunch of ideas from the web - I just wrote down anything that appealed to me. My favorite is The Birth Home - because it is going to be in an old house - it just sounds homey and inviting. Maybe The Gentle Birth Home?

Birthright of (name of city)
(name of city) Birth Center
The Birth Center of (name of city)
Beginnings Birth Center
Special Beginnings Birth Center
The Birth Home
Best Start Birth Center
Natural Birthing Center
The Birthplace
The Family Birth Center
The Baby Place
Whole Health Birth Center
Mother Care Birth Center
Birthing Naturally
Birth and Family Place

I like Naissance, which is French for birth.

Gentle Birth and Labor of Love are two that are used often.

Heart & Hands is nice, too.
