Midwife Center Poised To Become Largest Birth Center In The Nation

Even Pittsburghers who don’t know exactly what The Midwife Center is have probably noticed the mural that adorns its northeastern wall while driving through the Strip District.

A pregnant woman in a purple dress, two stories tall, almost seems to dance amidst a scene of trees and buildings and rivers.

The capital campaign began in 2013, and ground was broken on the project in July of this year.
