Dr. Christina Sebestyen of OBGYN North envisioned a place where her patients could come and have a natural labor under the care of a midwife. A place that would feel more like a luxurious hotel room with large jetted tubs, comfortable queen beds and spacious bathrooms. It would have the comforts of home for the family: a living room with comfortable couches, a large-screen TV and a kitchenette.
It also would be a place where, if a patient had complications, the attending midwife could accompany her across the street to a hospital and continue to attend to her needs as well as have access to Sebestyen or her fellow doctors in the practice.
