ABC Unit logo


The Alternative Birth Care Unit (ABC) was created out of a desire on the part of Providence Hospital to offer a safer alternative to home birth as well as an alternative to traditional hospital birth. The Alternative Birth Care Unit provides a birthing option that respects families’ feelings, assists them in joint decision-making and encourages them to have control over their own birthing event.

Because we are equipped to handle problems should they arise and because we respect the uniqueness of each individual labor and birth, the Alternative Birth Care Unit offers the best advantages of a home birth with an additional margin of safety for both you and your baby.

Come visit us and see for yourself. We want to help make the birth of your child the personal experience it should be.
