Birthvillage is a freestanding natural birthing center in Kerala, India run by midwives; it was birthed in December 2010. As one of the two founders I can say the journey from conception to today has been and is a real labor of love!
We serve an urban population of Indian families in a city where dads are still not able to be a part of their child’s birth and birth interventions rates are sky high. Families in Cochin now have another option where mothers, babies and fathers are honored and respected in their choices. So rare is our model, we have many families travel to give birth at Birthvillage from all across India.
We are a training facility for student midwives.
