Tapping into your innate wisdom
Using gravity to help relax and bring baby down & out.
Welcome to Holistic South, come and take a peek inside:
Experience a calmer, more peaceful birth without pressure, intervention or stress. “Waterdural” as we call it truly helps ease the pressure and tightness of the hips and lower back therefore assisting labor to progress with a mother’s intuition. Women have been birthing for millions of years. We trust this process with professional guidance, patience, compassion and love.
Some Benefits for Mother
Warm water is soothing, comforting, relaxing.
In the later stages of labor, the water has been shown to increase the woman’s energy.
The effect of buoyancy lessens a mother’s body weight, allowing free movement and new positioning. Buoyancy promotes more efficient uterine contractions and improved blood circulation resulting in better oxygenation of the uterine muscles, less pain for the mother, and more oxygen for the baby. Immersion in water often helps lower high blood pressure caused by anxiety. Since the water provides a greater sense of privacy, it can reduce inhibitions, anxiety, and fears.
For Baby the water provides an environment similar to the amniotic sac. Eases the stress of the birth transition thus increasing reassurance and sense of security. Entering the World with calm and tenderness.
VBAC in the hosptial- Our wonderful Medical Director has been helping women with Successful VBAC’s for years! If cleared, you can see the midwives throughout pregnancy, and birth across the street with our Dr. who is holistic and cares!
Medical Care Is Minutes Away
HSPBC is the ONLY South Florida Birth Center which is located directly across the street from a hospital, Jackson South hospital for safety. Our birth center is under the direction of our Board Certified OB/GYN of 30 years.
Most families have some concerns about the “what if’s” so we have taken the safety measure out and still have the beautiful space for mothers to labor with love and tranquility. Our hospital is friendly to our midwives and that “continuity of care” is very important when necessary. Our medical director is alway available for medical necessity.
Guided By Midwives
Total holistic care including women’s wellness for life, prenatal, labor/birthing and postpartum family support. We have resources for acupuncture, massage, nutritional support, chiropractic care, & offer breastfeeding support right from the start!
Midwives work from the Heart! They guide rather than direct and allow for mothers to experience their own feelings throughout the birth process. Always attending with mother-baby observation together with suggestions if and when needed.
HSPBC is proud to be open to local midwives upon request, allowing families to choose a safe out of hospital-natural birth.
