I was able to get a quality prenatal ultrasound at a good price and without having to schedule it 2 months in advance.

A great resource for women with no insurance, or limited resources.

I attended the vaccination clinic at this place and was really impressed. It was very informative and I was able to make an educated decision about what vaccines to give my child. It seemed very neutral and not opinionated, so I know I got both sides of the vaccination argument.

I have 8 children and am a midwife. I know and trust the Naturopathic Doctor's at this center. We refer our midwifery clients to them for ultrasound and pediatric care. Thank you, especially to Dr. Ed Hoffman-Smith!

I was so glad to find a birthing center in the Portland area that employed actual physicians rather than only midwives. While midwives are wonderful, many insurances (mine included) will not consider covering any part of the birth cost if there isn't a doctor present. This clinic employs naturopathic doctors which I found to be the best of both worlds. Liz Collins is very intelligent and informative. We began seeing Liz about half way through our pregnancy. We switched from a midwife at a large hospital and it was the best decision we have made so far as a couple.
We NEVER had to wait to be seen by Liz. It was a very personal relationship that we were able to develop because there were no nurses to show us to a cold room where we would wait for 20 minutes to be seen. Instead, Liz herself greeted us as soon as we arrived, and she set aside an entire hour which we mostly used to ask questions and get advice. Not only was Liz friendly and on time, but she was empowering. She never said anything remotely negative about pregnancy or delivery or gave us anything to fear - but rather made us feel like we were in control, that our personal choices were always valid, and that we were going to be wonderful parents. This was crucial as this was our first baby. I had a fantastic and positive pregnancy, I never felt nervous or unsure.
The birth itself was beautiful. Just as planned, we called Liz as soon as labor began. She was calm and helpful. We labored as long as we wanted in the comfort of our home and then met Liz and her lovely midwives at the clinic. They lit candles, played the music that I had brought, and ran me a warm bath to labor in. It was a peaceful experience, they only spoke when I needed encouragement or coaching and they just kept telling me how great I was doing. For a portion of the labor, they left the room and so I was only with my family - No bright lights, no monitors, no nurses, no IV's. Just my family. After we delivered our little boy, they ordered us breakfast and allowed us to do whatever we wanted: lay with the baby, visit with family, sleep. They never took the baby out of the room, they waited to do a newborn exam until we were ready. They gave us info on newborn care and breastfeeding, and then we went home. Now, natural childbirth is no walk in the park; but all things considered, it was the perfect day.
I owe my pleasant experience to Liz, her AMAZING team of midwives, and the clinic. I encourage anyone looking for a natural, calm, empowering birth experience to check our Natural Childbirth & Family Clinic.

I have felt very well taken care of at this clinic. My doctor/midwife was so personal and thorough and always took the time to talk over everything with me. I ended up switching over from my "traditional" doctor after I got fed up waiting 45 minutes for 2 minutes of the doctor's time. Here it's the other way around, I wait 2 minutes and I get 45 minutes of doctor time. While I admit that a few times the front desk staff seemed a bit busy and rushed and therefore could have come off as rude to some, I have never felt even an inkling of that from my doctor. She's always been extremely attentive to me. I'm due to deliver very soon and couldn't be more comfortable with my choice to go this route.

Unfortunately I have to leave a bad review for the NCFC. I'm sure some of the docs there are great, but the front desk staff have been less than professional several times that we have been in. The last time we went we were treated very rudely by one of the front desk staff and one of the doctors when a question came up about our insurance (they had incorrect info but refused to believe me, even after I verified with the insurance co). The doc later apologized, but I was put off with how it was dealt with. Another time I was in, one front desk staff member was scolding another for how she had done something and it was right out in the open for everyone to hear.

I really tried to like this place but will not be going back. I do like Dr. Ed and his talk on vaccinations that he provides. My midwife highly recommended him too, but I have not been in to see him.

Pros: Play area for children

Cons: The people that work there

My experience with this birthing center was so bad that I abandoned my midwife just a few weeks before my due date. Rude front desk staff, difficulty getting appointments, pressure for routine medical tests, disinterested midwives and doctors that were consistently and grossly late for appointments and a general feeling of being rushed are just some of what you can expect here. That is, after the kissy kissy first appointment where they promptly get you to sign up for their care. Literally not much better than an HMO. I would highly recommend finding an independent or smaller midwifery center, as NCFC left way too much to be desired for a woman seeking a gentle, natural birth alternative.
