...and then the time came when the risk it took
to remain tight in a bud
was more painful than the risk
it took to blossom.

Choosing Blossom

Mary and Nichelle
As the unfolding of a flower, Nichelle Whitehead and Mary Langlois came together to offer a gentle alternative for natural birth called Blossom Birth Center.

Blossom Birth services provide a truly integrative and holistic wellness approach using methods from midwifery, obstetrics, gynecology, herbalism, body work, aromatherapy, hydrotherapy, homeopathy, and much more. We encourage a woman’s innate ability to give birth, heal, and walk through life cycle transitions with strength and honor.

At Blossom Birth Center we inspire women to make informed evidence based choices, which support health & vitality. We offer gentle, respectful care for women’s wellness, pregnancy, labor, birth, postpartum, and family planning with a holistic approach to include physical, emotional, and spiritual aspects. We give personalized care with respect and dignity that is woman centered, and empowering.

Blossom Birth Center is the only alternative to a hospital that has our own physician “in house”. If additional support is needed we are only minutes from St. Joseph’s Hospital. Blossom Birth Center is located in central Phoenix directly North of Phoenix Children’s Hospital.

Women owned and operated with gentle, loving, care for those who choose this option. Our collaborative practice is based on knowledge, experience, evidence, wisdom, and intuition.
