We are the first & only South Florida Birth Center located directly across from a hospital for safety.

This is important for mothers who still want to have a vaginal birth.   We at HSPBC have over 90% success rate for normal, natural vaginal birth, using none or minimal medical interventions.

Your birth center birth will be attended by a midwife, a registered nurse and a doula(when applicable).

Our medical director is always on call in case we need medical help, and has an extremely low c-section rate of his own. Providing our patients medical advice and assistance when needed and advocating for normal, natural birth first. If transferred, our moms still have the compassion needed for vaginal hospital birth.
