Black Hills Birth Center is happy to provide our client’s with the highest quality of care for out of hospital birth. All births are attended by a birthing team including a Registered Nurse and a Certified Nurse Midwife. We have a referral list of trained doula’s if you need assistance in locating one. All first time mother’s are required to contract with a trained doula.
ERICA BESTGEN RN: “I am a wife to my high school sweetheart, mother to three daughters, happily living in the Black Hills, and enjoying being a nurse. I believe God made a true masterpiece when he created women. I am continually amazed by their strength and ability to bring new life into the world. It is a blessing each and every time to witness the beginning of a new family. Besides birthing, I am particularly interested in assisting mother’s with breastfeeding and I am an accredited Le Leche League Leader. I am currently working towards certification as a Natural Family Planning instructor and International Board Certified Lactation Consultant.”
RUBY KAISER RN: “I Graduated nursing school in 1987 with 3 year diploma, received my baccalaureate degree in nursing in 2004 and Master’s degree in nursing in 2009. I have been certified in obstetrical and emergency room nursing. I enjoyed working for 20 years as a primary OB nurse in Deadwood and various other hospitals in Wyoming and South Dakota as a travel nurse. Besides working at the Black Hills Birth Center, I continue to work in the emergency room at the VA hospital in Sturgis. OB, however, my love…..especially the natural way!”
CHELSEA IVERSEN: ”I grew up in Whitewood, SD and attended Sturgis Brown High where I met my high school sweetheart and husband, Donald Iversen. I have two beautiful boys, Gabriel 4yrs. old and Liam who is 3. I received my baccalaureate degree in nursing from South Dakota State University in 2006 and have always been interested in maternity care, but the blessing of my own children has largely shaped my passion to serve women and infants, and ensure their health and wellbeing. I am currently enrolled in the Master’s degree program at the Frontier School of Family Nursing and Midwifery.”
We just wanted to give everyone a sneek peek at our facility. We are done with the interior construction and with the exception of a few minor details, we are finished decorating.
The outer courtyard project will be commencing in the next month. This courtyard will be accessible only from the birth rooms and will be completely enclosed with a privacy fence. We can’t wait!
The Blue room features an “AQUA EEZ” birth tub. This tub is specifically designed for comfort for you water birth. It has an attachable trapeze for hanging “standing” births to assist with pushing. Water temperatures are 102… perrrfect for relaxing in labor!
We are so proud to announce that our first babies have arrived safely into the world attended by Jeanne Prentice, CNM, Ruby Kaiser, RN and Erica Bestgen, RN!
Ready to go home!
