The Bay Area Birth Center

Every aspect of Bay Area Birth Center was designed with your comfort in mind. You will get to know everyone on our staff, and every corner of our facility: from the comfortable reception area to the welcoming kitchen and just-like-home delivery rooms. Take a brief virtual tour through the photos on the website, and then register below to schedule a visit in person or make an appointment.

Every birth is unique and miraculous, and about one third of the patients at Bay Area Birth Center choose to celebrate it in the comfort and security of their own home. This option is offered to families who live within 100 miles of our birth center.

The staff includes, founder Jackie Griggs, CNM, who is a Certified Nurse-Midwife with a Master’s degree in nursing who has delivered over 800 babies, yet can still recall each as an “honored, unique event.” Camellia May, CPM has been a midwife since 1993 and has been working with Jackie Griggs since 1992. She gave birth to four of her five children at home with the assistance of midwives. Stephanie Palacio, CNM has come to work at the Birth Center following several years as a Labor and Delivery nurse at several Houston hospitals. She trained with us a few years ago, while she was a nurse, -midwife student. Mona Lisa Ott, CNM, has many years of experience at a major hospital and is making the transition to working in a Birth Center and home birth very well! Mary Cunningham, Office Manager, will be the friendly voice on the phone to answer your questions, schedule appointments and take care of billing and insurance.

You’re invited to learn more by scheduling a complimentary consultation to tour the facilities, meet the staff and talk about the care you envision.
