The Birth Place is a unique full-service facility providing world-class midwifery and womens health care. We strive to create a supportive, educational experience in a relaxed, friendly and professional environment.
The Birth Place grew from a need for quality midwifery services in the greater Orlando area. Jennie Joseph has provided home-birth services for Florida women since 1995 and as her practice grew it became apparent that she could only be in one place at a time! The solution - a birth center providing quality, affordable women's health care and in which our patients' safety and well being always comes first.

Dozens of people lined Orange Avenue in Orlando on Monday as part of the National Rally for Change, with a goal to improve maternity care in the United States by encouraging "evidence based practice." According to Improving Birth.org, the US lags behind 49 other industrialized nations in maternal survival rates.
"That we are losing as many women, sometimes more women than in third-world countries ... so for a developed nation, we are doing very poorly when it comes to maternal health," midwife Jennie Joseph said. Joseph says there is definitely a correlation between unnecessary interventions, like elective inductions and surgeries, and these poor outcomes.
"Women need to stand up, to ask the questions, understand the answers, do the research and get some support," she said.
