Family Centered Birth offers choices in pregnancy and childbirth including a beautiful home-like Birth Center facility in Riverside, CA, as well as home birth, water birth, natural childbirth, VBAC (vaginal birth after cesarean), and compassionate midwifery care. 

The Birth Center

Kate Potthast, LM, CPM created Family Centered Birth because of her desire to offer birthing women more choices.


Alternative Birthing Centers have excellent safety records and are a reasonable option for low-risk women. ​


At Family Centered Birth, we know that birth is safer when mother is comfortable and relaxed.  


We strive to support and nurture women through their pregnancy, birth and beyond.  

Water Birth

Because Birth Matters

Water birth can offer safe, effective pain relief in labor, a more comfortable way to birth, and an easier transition into the world for your baby.  Ask the midwife about the benefits of water birth during your free consultation. If you choose to birth in our center, our birth suites offer spacious built-in birthing tubs.  You'll never want to birth in a hospital again!  Come check it out!
