It is our pleasure to introduce you to the Babymoon Inn, one
of the Phoenix area local birth centers. We have enjoyed getting to know the
director, Julia Hall, through her support of The Bradley Method® events, as
well as other local events where we have been vendors together. We have had students from our classes birth
there, as well as receive postpartum support through Babymoon’s various
breastfeeding and family support meetings offered throughout the week. The
support meetings are open to all families in the community, regardless of
whether or not they birthed at Babymoon Inn.
We are so grateful to Julia’s commitment to create a community that
supports and enriches a family through pregnancy, birth, and into the
FYI: As of Spring
2016, one of our Bradley Method® colleagues is offering the Bradley™ 12-week
childbirth preparation series at Babymoon Inn.
I hope you enjoy this month’s exclusive INSIDE LOOK at the
Babymoon Inn. I want to offer huge
thanks to Julia for taking the time to give our readers a peek into the
beautiful birth center located in Central Phoenix.
Tell me about the Babymoon Inn.
Babymoon Inn is a freestanding accredited birth center and full-scope
midwifery practice, offering GYN and well-woman care in addition to prenatal
care. Families who come to us can choose to birth in our birth center or
at the hospital with a Babymoon Inn midwife. We also offer doula
services, prenatal massage, in-house chiropractic care, and an
original Lamaze childbirth preparation series.
Who are the care providers at Babymoon Inn?
Babymoon’s care providers are certified nurse-midwives.
kind of families does Babymoon Inn serve?
Babymoon welcomes ALL families. We serve families from all areas
and all backgrounds and all walks of life. The common element among all
of our families is that they are well-researched, they are informed about their
choices, and they want to be active participants in their care.
What range of services does Babymoon Inn provide for the childbearing
year and beyond? Is there anything you do not provide for?
Babymoon believes in holistic, patient-centered care and we aim to
provide all of these services from the comfort of our office. We offer
prenatal care with extended appointment times, chiropractic care, prenatal
massage, doula support, Lamaze childbirth preparation classes, an orientation
group led by our registered dietitian, and two group prenatal
appointments. After baby arrives, we offer three weekly support groups
for babies of various ages, lactation support, a postpartum group appointment
complete with newborn photos, and two appointments with a midwife. We
screen for postpartum depression twice within the first six weeks after birth
and continue to follow up with our mamas through our weekly Inn Mommies support
group. We offer a wide variety of community-building activities, such as
weekly music classes, clothing swaps, crafting events for both moms and
children, a monthly lecture series, and our famous annual cookie exchange every
What makes Babymoon Inn unique?
We are a team of healthcare consumers AND healthcare providers who are
committed to listening to feedback from our clients to give the most
well-rounded, patient-centered experience. We’ve grown our practice to
offer a wide range of services based on what our families have requested, and
we strive to meet each client wherever she is in her journey.
What motivated you to start Babymoon Inn?
My passion was ignited by my own experience as a mother receiving
traditional obstetrical care in the medical model and then the stark contrast
to the midwifery model of care, where I was an active participant in the
process. Based on my own experiences and how I felt under each model of
care, it became my life’s goal to make sure every woman who walks through our
doors has a voice and leaves feeling empowered and supported. She will
know her voice matters.
Is there anything else our readers should know about Babymoon Inn or
the care providers?
We don’t believe in one kind of birth experience. You can have your
baby in the birth center, in the hospital, with an epidural, unmedicated, by
yourself, or with your entire family present. We are not here to dictate your
birth; we are here to facilitate it and be a partner in your care
What inspires you?
The families who allow us to be a part of their journey during such a beautiful
and miraculous time of life inspire me every day.
