With thirty years and 7,000 babies behind us, our team at Austin Area Birthing Center has learned quite a bit about creating the ideal natural birth experience. We used that wisdom to develop our original birthing center location in North Austin, and we've built one of the largest and oldest natural birthing centers in the United States. We've taken that same emphasis on comfort, community and midwife led care to our location on William Cannon, with the addition of a little South Austin flavor. Watch our video to see for yourself how our years of experience and passion for moms and babies have combined to make the perfect Austin birthing center.
The three private birthing suites at our south location reflect the unique vibes of South Austin. Each suite is decorated with handmade art that emphasises the folkways of Austin, from the music, to the art, to the culture. The overall aesthetics are soothing, homey and uniquely Austin.
Each suite is equipped with a private kitchen and bathroom, as well as plenty of space. If you've chosen to have a water birth, our state-of-the-art birthing tubs have the latest in safety features and a virtually limitless supply of hot water. Our South Austin birthing center is one of the most upscale centers in the nation. Everything from the art to the fixtures to the architecture is designed to provide the ideal childbirth experience.
In addition to the facilities, Austin Area Birthing Center South provides the same attentive, specialized care found at our other facilities. Our highly trained midwives will walk you through every step of the birthing process, from pre-natal visits through to the big day and onto your child's first years. We also offer a robust selection of free classes, including prenatal yoga, birthing classes, centering, baby love, toddler love and more.

Austin Area Birthing Center Classes:
- We have free pre-natal yoga classes three times a week, and free post natal yoga for a year.
- AABC babies receive free weekly massage therapy for a year, followed by a toddler class until they are two.
- Free centering classes. Centering reduces the risk of complications by 50%.
In addition to their therapeutic benefits, our classes are also a great way to meet other moms. That emotional support is one of the most fulfilling benefits of the AABC experience. You'll make friends and build relationships that you can lean on during the rocky days and celebrate with during the good ones.
If you choose to have a home birth, you can still enjoy all of the classes, amenities and community of Austin Area Birthing Center. You'll received the same pre-natal and post-natal care and classes, the only difference is, when your big day arrives, our home birth midwives will be there to help you deliver your baby in the comfort of your own bed.
As with all Austin Area Birthing Center locations, the south location is midwife owned and operated. With a mix of home birth midwives and hospital birth midwives, we have the training and experience to help you have the perfect birth. Wherever you choose to deliver your baby - at the center, in a hospital or at home, the same kind and nurturing midwives who led you through pregnancy will be there to help bring your new family member into the world. Our South Austin midwife dream team includes several of Austin's most beloved midwives, as well as two certified nurse midwives.
We are mom focused and want every mom do have her ideal, natural birth. In order to make it easier on families, we accept most insurance.
Austin Area Birthing Center is more than just a place to have a baby. It's a place to grow and learn in community with knowledgeable midwives and other caring parents.
