Lifecycle WomanCare (LWC), previously known as The Birth Center, is an independent, free-standing birth center located in Bryn Mawr. LWC is one of the oldest and largest freestanding birth centers in the country. It was the first licensed birth center in Pennsylvania and has provided exceptional healthcare services for women of all ages, regardless of income, for nearly 40 years. The organization changed its name to Lifecycle WomanCare in 2015 to illuminate and highlight the breadth of high-quality care it provides to women over the course of their entire lifetime – from adolescence through post-menopausal years. LWC is a teaching facility as well and provides clinical training to midwifery and nursing students. LWC is a 501(c)3 charitable organization employing approximately 55 individuals, about half of whom are full time.
