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 thousands of years. We trust this process with professional guidance, patience, compassion and love.
Some Benefits for Mother
Warm water is soothing, comforting, relaxing. Parents are not stressed or worried about their surroundings.
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 discomfort 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.
Every birthworker at HSPBC is “waterbirth” certified. Even our medical director.
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 Doctor who is patient 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 35 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 mothers, and with our birth friendly physician that “continuity of care” is very important when necessary. Our medical director is always available for medical assistance at HSPBC and/or the hospital. This is so important just in case mom or baby needs assistance. A car ride is not okay, we have 911 behind us so our continuity of care is there for you!
Guided By Midwives
Total holistic care including women’s wellness for life, prenatal, labor/birthing and postpartum family support. We have resources and discount rates for acupuncture, massage, nutritional support, chiropractic care, & offer breastfeeding support right from the start!
Midwives who work with HSPBC are trained in Holistic care! They guide rather than direct and allow for mothers to experience their own feelings throughout the birth process. Mothers do not need to “learn how to birth” as it is instinctual. Your birth workers are attending, assiting and monitoring with close mother-baby observation together with suggestions if and when needed.
We do Compassion, We do Patience, We do Love!
At Holistic South Pregnancy & Birth Center our families choose a safe out of hospital-natural birth experience. Come in and enjoy a peaceful pregnancy and loving birth.
Women have been birthing for thousands of years! Trust birth, we do.

An incredible and supportive place for prenatal and birth care. I was surrounded at all times with love and was encouraged to follow what I wanted out of my birth. Instead of being a scary experience as most describe it, it was enlightening, empowering and made me feel proud of what I and my body could accomplish. Thank you to Debra, and beautiful birthworkers, for an incredible birth experience. Gianluca was brought into this world so beautifully thanks to your love and support.Karina C.
If you're looking for positive and supportive prenatal care and birthing experience, Holistic South Pregnancy & Birth Center is the absolute best option.Stephanie DLPaz
During prenatal appointments, I never felt rushed and as a first-time mom always felt comfortable asking questions and for guidance. The midwives and nurses were absolutely wonderful, always sharing their abundance of knowledge and making me feel cared for.
My birth experience was beyond what I ever expected. My midwife was an absolute blessing, and birth team were so incredibly supportive and calm throughout. I never felt rushed, stressed, or that I had to be on the defensive to advocate for myself and my desires. The staff always made me feel so comfortable and empowered.
I cannot say enough wonderful things about our experience and truly recommend the center to anyone looking for a natural birth with care under the most incredible individuals.
I cannot say enough good things about my first visit to your Center. This being my first pregnancy I was worried and nervous about finding the right care but as soon as I walked through the door you calmed my nerves and made the experience an easy one. Thank you HSPBC!Tiffany
The service that you recieve at HSPBC is perhaps the most necessary one for human kind. The education, support and love provided by the entire team was top notch! The facility is clean, the office staff is efficient, and our birth experience was exhilerating yet controlled. Debra's ability to guide the process from day one to the birth day is flawless. We have to give a special thank you to our gifted midwives, we are forever grateful. Thanks to everyone at HSPBC so much for every interaction. This was the best way for us to birth our "love" into the world and we fell that any family would have as positive of an experience as we did!Amanda, Greg & baby Sofia
"Our birth experience was a dream come true! It was everything we imagined it would be and more. The staff at Holistic South treated us like family throughout the entire pregnancy. Our birth plan was successful. Everyone was very understanding and attentive to our needs. We both felt that birthing our baby boy at Holistic South was the safest option for our family and greatest decision we could have made. We will definitely be back for our second child and wouldn't change a thing. So much gratitude goes out to the whole staff at HSPBC!Mama Alex
