At the Boven Birth Center, we believe that community support can inspire and encourage you as you experience pregnancy's excitement and challenges.
We hope our new parents' success stories encourage and reassure you. We invite you to tell us about how the Boven Birth Center has made a difference in the lives of families all over West Michigan.
While we celebrate healthy births at Boven every day, we also have the rare—and very sad—occasion to grieve alongside parents after a miscarriage or the death of a newborn. Our bereavement services and support group assist families through a holistic grieving process.
For parents and families who who have experienced a miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy, stillbirth or newborn death, Boven Birth Center provides on-going support groups to assist with the grieving process. Help is available as long as you need it.
