Once you are pregnant, it’s time to take the best possible care of the two of you! Pregnancy is an exciting time filled with anticipation. At Franciscan Family Birth Centers, located around the Puget Sound region of Washington in Tacoma, Burien, Enumclaw, and Federal Way, we look forward to being there for you and your baby from the very beginning of your pregnancy.

Also, new to Franciscan, is our CenteringPregnancy® group prenatal care, led by our certified nurse-midwives.
