About Palms Birth House
Birth is a normal life process. Science has shown that through regular prenatal monitoring and screening most women will, without intervention, have a normal labor and birth process. It is of the utmost importance that the mother’s wants and needs be met with respect and compassion. It is our belief that the family should have an active role during pregnancy and birth. A blend of tradition, faith and science makes midwifery care safe, effective and empowering. We are here to assist you in having a beautiful and natural birth. Midwives are experts in normal childbirth. The focus of midwifery care is to promote a healthy pregnancy, labor, birth and newborn. By the time a woman who is cared for by a midwife goes into labor, she has had 9 months of comprehensive care in which she has learned about the processes of labor and birth and has come to a greater understanding of her own body
Elizabeth has been a part of the birth community since 2010. She is licensed both in the state of Florida and nationally as a certified professional midwife. She trained with every senior midwife in South Florida and has attended over 480 births in her career.

Comprehensive Care: Our Centering Pregnancy program offers the best care model for pregnancy while building families and community. The Education portion of your visit is done in a group setting where woman can share experiences, questions and joy. During the session each mom receives one on one private time with the midwife to address personal concerns and care. Studies have shown that the Centering model is the most effective way of delivering care that lowers preterm birth and other complications. Furthermore mothers feel better educated and have a sense of community support. When the time comes you will be welcomed into your choice of birth suites at our facility.
Concierge Care: This traditional midwifery model of care is designed to provide one-on-one care to an extent that is not possible in modern obstetrics. We adhere to the midwifery model as a minimum standard, and strive to provide the most personalized and evidence-based care available for all levels of service. Visits are done one on one with the midwife.
