Morning Star Birth Centre

Conscious Birthing for Welcoming New Life

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.

“Out of the paths of the morning star they came Into the little room of mortal life” 

Sri Aurobindo, Savitri
