With the launch of our new website and blog we are going to feature blog postings highlighting our members on a regular basis. This is the first of many more to come.
We'd like to introduce you to Breath of LIfe Women's Health & Birth Center! Centrally located in Largo on East Bay Drive, Breath of Life is a wonderful resource for women wanting an out-of-hospital birth. The facility, staffed exclusively by women, is the only natural birth center in Central Florida that employs certified nurse-midwives. The Midwives Model of Care, a fundamentally different approach to pregnancy and childbirth compared to standard medical management, is the norm at Breath of Life.
They offer natural childbirth in a comfortable and flexible setting. The staff believe that pregnancy and birth are normal, healthy experiences for the overwhelming majority of women, and most are able to successfully labor and give birth without medical intervention or interference.
Breath of Life provides prenatal, birth and postpartum care for both parents. They offer exercise counseling, childbirth, newborn care and breastfeeding preparation classes to help you participate fully in your pregnancy, labor and birth and enjoy your new role as parent. You will be informed about tests, procedures and treatments so that you can make educated, informed choices. Family participation is strongly encouraged at all times, guided by your wishes.
Giving birth at a birth center means you and your baby will remain together during your entire stay, which is usually 4-6 hours after birth. You will be able to form that special bond with your new family member immediately.
Their three beautiful birthing suites include Jacuzzi-like birthing tubs for water births, support railings, stereo system for soothing music, and private patios. There is a family room equipped with a small kitchen where other family members can rest or wait. They provide a very peaceful and calm atmosphere that is all about comfort and support.
We are very happy to have the Breath of Life Birth Center as a member of the Tampa Bay Birth Network and we highly recommend their services for expecting couples!
