Morning Star Birth Centre
The Morning Star Birthing Centre provides an environment for women to experience childbirth in as natural and calm an environment as possible. Welcoming and raising a new life in its initial years is a matter of great responsibility not just of the new mother but also of the family and environment. This Centre provides these facilities as well as raises the awareness of the family and the community to the need of such a birthing environment and proper pre/postnatal care as part of the upbringing of a baby.
To offer women safe, natural, ecological childbirth in the heart of Auroville by offering services that manifest the highest quality of care during pregnancy, birth and the first year of life.
To hold the space for women in childbirth, supporting the natural process of birth.
