The Phoenix Birth Center


Our home is a Queen Ann, Territorial design that was constructed in 1916. For almost 100 years, it sat at its Central Avenue and Ashland Street location until it was slated for demolition. In 2006 it was rescued by Mr. Tom Carmody and moved to its present location.  

The sand and pebble exterior stucco texture was a short-lived trend unique to the southwest. It was hoped that the use of this material would provide insulation with readily available materials. There are very few buildings that still have this type of stucco. When Mr. Carmody renovated the building, he included the peekaboo accent, which you can see in the photo below, to the right of the front door, giving us a glimpse of the inside brick structure. 

We have had the pleasure to meet some of the people who grew up in this house and are excited to be able to say that babies have been happily born in this building for longer than any other building, center or hospital in the Greater Phoenix Area!

Schedule a tour and come see for yourself! We think you'll agree, our birth center is more like a magical home-away-from-home than it is a clinic.
