Love. Natural Birth. Babies. Midwives.

Here at Heart 2 Heart Natural Birth Center, we believe we are all fearfully and wonderfully made by God. We are honored and privileged to serve you during your family’s growth whether you are looking for a water birth, or free standing birth. With that love for all, we are also LGBTQIA+ friendly and do not discriminate based on disability, race, nationality, religion, gender, sexual orientation, or your white or red wine preference.

We are in network with BCBS, Florida Healthcare plans, Aetna, Cigna and United HealthCare. We are NOT currently contracted with Florida Medicaid plans. Deductibles and Copays will be calculated at our consult appointment for an accurate estimate of out of pocket fees.

Cash payment plans are always accepted and appreciated and extended credit plans are now an option! You can apply here for your line of credit to have your natural birth with our professional and experienced midwives.

At Heart 2 Heart Birth Center, we believe that childbirth is a normal function of the human body and is typically a normal, uncomplicated process for healthy, low-risk women. Choosing birth in our natural birth center you gain the freedom to make choices for yourself and your baby that may not be available in a hospital setting, such as freedom of movement, having a water birth, and eating and drinking to your comfort.<

"What a BEAUTIFUL facility! I love how you feel like you are at home here. So grateful for Michelle. She’s thorough, very knowledgeable and gives great detail to everything you need to feel comfortable with your birth. I highly recommend H2H for any mama wanting to feel safe, supported and loved! Thank you for all you ladies do in the community!"

"Had my son at H2H with Emily. It was even more amazing than I ever imagined. The second I walked in the door I had a contraction and Emily was right there to help me through it. She was very hands off but by my side when I needed her. I felt free to listen to my body and birth how I wanted. All of the midwives and staff during my prenatal care were fantastic too! I love how they treat pregnancy like a natural normal thing, unlike doctors who made me feel like pregnancy was a medical condition. Loved my experience with H2H!"
- Tara R.

Frequently Ask Questions

We will review your medical history, discuss your childbirth expectations, and see if you are a good candidate for a natural, out-of-hospital birth (either at home or in our center). During your consultation visit, if you are beyond seven weeks, we offer a free pregnancy ultrasound video as a gift!

Yes. Heart 2 Heart Birth Center is a State Licensed facility. This means that we adhere to state guidelines throughout your pregnancy, providing care to low-risk, healthy moms. If higher-risk issues are identified, we either consult with our backup physician, refer our patients for collaborative care with other local health professionals or, if necessary, transfer care to a higher-level medical team. So call us today to see if you qualify for a natural birth experience!

Currently, Heart 2 Heart Birth Center offers self-payment plans for both insured and uninsured patients. We are in network with MOST commercial plans (please call for details).

As of May 2023, we are not longer accepting Florida Medicaid plans. Our fees are substantially less than self pay hospital rates and are comparable to all home birth practice fees in our region. 

Yes. As we move through the Covid 19 pandemic timeline, we are all finding our “new normal.” Asymptomatic guests may remove their masks if they prefer. Partners are encouraged to come to visits. Prenatally, if a mom has had direct exposure or tested positive for Covid19, telehealth appointments will be arranged until the mom’s test is negative or all symptoms have stopped for two weeks. On a more personal note, most of our staff has opted to be vaccinated to protect others we are in contact with.

Guests are still limited, but always have been, since your delivery room is standard bedroom size and childbirth is not a spectator sport. We are so sorry that we do not have room for extended family members to wait while a baby is being delivered. Family members are directed to remain at home until the mom is discharged or come for a short visit an hour or so after the baby has been born. Most moms can go home after 4 hours if they choose so that family members can see the baby very soon after birth.
