Is anybody able to deliver at your center?
At Miami Holistic Birth Center, we utilize intermittent auscultation during labor (compared to continuous fetal monitoring that is done in the hospital setting). Because of this, our center is only suitable for low-risk deliveries and is unable to accommodate women with previous cesarean delivery/previous uterine surgery, current twin gestation, and certain other conditions.
