Birth Center Philosophy

"Heart 2 Heart Birth Center provides a natural alternative to the traditional hospital birth for natural minded mamas in the greater Orlando area"

Birth is a normal function of the human body, and is typically a normal, uncomplicated process for healthy, low risk women.  Making the choice to birth outside the hospital gives you the freedom to make choices for yourself and your baby that may not be available in a hospital setting, such as freedom of movement, waterbirth, and eating and drinking to your comfort.  Due to our low volume, our caring staff is able to cater to each family’s needs on an individual basis.  This results in a personalized, intimate experience, free of unnecessary interventions. Florida Birth Centers are governed under Florida Statute and have similar requirements and regulations to maintain just like local hospital labor and delivery units. 
We Believe that...

We keep our volume low so we can keep our quality high! Our caring staff is able to cater to each family’s needs on a personal level.

National Standards for Birth Centers

The American Association of Birth Centers (AABC) sets national standards to provide a consistent and specific tool for measuring the quality of services provided to childbearing families in birth centers. Federal and state regulation, licensure, and national accreditation constitute branches of external evaluation of quality in birth centers. Licensing protects the public by monitoring compliance to codes, ordinances and a variety of regulations. Some states and municipalities are very specific and uniform in the level of requirements for safe operation...

The standards and attributes for national accreditation are uniformly applied in all localities, thereby eliminating state and local inconsistency. Meeting the standards of accreditation indicates to clients, states, health and liability insurance agencies, consulting providers, and hospitals that a birth center has met a high standard of evidence-based and widely recognized benchmarks for maternity care, neonatal care, business operations, and safety. A strong internal quality improvement program, in accordance with the standards, promotes success with external measurements of quality. Continuing accreditation demonstrates to consumers and other entities that best practices are being met and maintained by a birth center.
