When PeaceHealth Oregon closed its Nurse Midwifery Birth Center in late summer— it left Lane County without such birthing services for the first time since the 1970’s.  On Wednesday, a community organizing group announced plans to open new, free-standing Birth Center in the Eugene-Springfield area.
