More than 92% of mothers who choose Allen Birthing Center deliver healthy, happy babies at the center. However, from time-to-time, situations arise during labor and childbirth that are best handled in a hospital environment. Two major hospitals are within minutes of the Birthing Center in cases where additional assistance is necessary.
Owner and Clinical Director Amy Giles, CNM and Kristen Conroy, CNM maintain hospital privileges at Baylor Medical Center in McKinney. In the event a hospital transfer is required for your birth, Amy or Kristen will transfer with you as your primary medical professional and advisor at the hospital.
They are among only a handful of midwives in the country to maintain dual privileges at a freestanding birth center and an accredited hospital. Although a hospital transfer can feel scary, we are dedicated to making sure that all birth center clients achieve the best birth outcome possible with complete continuity of care for you and your baby.
Of those mothers that transfer from Allen Birthing Center to a hospital less than 4% require a cesarean birth.
