Savannah Birth & Wellness Center is the oldest free-standing midwifery practice for women’s health in the State of Georgia.

Established in 1987, our state-licensed and nationally accredited center is the only facility in the area employing the Midwifery Model of Care. This approach has offered the Coastal Plains Region an alternative to conventional, clinical, and high-intervention birthing methods, with generations of babies being delivered naturally into the compassionate care of our Certified Nurse Midwives.

Our mission is to deliver outstanding care to women across all ages and diverse backgrounds through the Midwifery Model of Care. Our midwives provide the entire spectrum of client and family-centered care. Starting with educating you and your partner about pregnancy and birth, they provide continuous support for the entire birthing journey.

Board Standards

Clinical Expertise

Our Certified Nurse Midwives bring a wealth of expertise, having completed rigorous programs at accredited Nurse Midwifery schools.

Their extensive experience, totaling over 60 years in midwifery, enriches our care. In Georgia, each midwife is a licensed Advanced Practice Registered Nurse and is nationally certified by the American Midwifery Certification Board (AMCB), ensuring high standards of care for our clients.

Collaborative Approach

Integrated Health

Our nurse midwives offer full-scope midwifery, supported by our in-house OB/GYN specialists.

They engage in consultations, collaborations, and referrals with other healthcare team members to ensure the delivery of optimal health care. Proudly, our Birth Center has been serving the community for nearly 40 years, and our midwives have held hospital privileges for over 16 years.

Empowered Births

The Midwifery
Model of Care

It advocates for a comforting, familiar environment, empowering women in decision-making and ensuring continuous, personalized care through pregnancy, birth, and beyond, fostering a deep, trusting relationship between midwife and mother.

Who is Lilac Health?

Lilac Health is at the forefront of providing patient-centered, evidence-based care, ensuring every family enjoys a compassionate birth experience. We believe in nurturing each family’s unique journey to childbirth, grounded in our conviction that the highest standard of care is a fundamental right, particularly at life’s most pivotal moments. Our journey began in Asheville, North Carolina, a community celebrated for its rich culture and openness to diverse birthing practices. In March 2023, we inaugurated the Asheville Birth and Wellness Center, marking our first step towards bringing our vision to life. Building on this foundation, we expanded our reach by acquiring The Midwife Group in late 2023, marking a significant stride in our mission to enhance and broaden the scope of maternity care throughout the nation. This expansion into Savannah not only diversifies our innovative care model but also reaffirms our unwavering commitment to improve and personalize the birthing experience for families everywhere.
