"Before even becoming pregnant I knew I wanted to have a natural birth. Once I was pregnant I started doing research to find a place where I could receive prenatal care and that would also respect my birth plan. In looking for those resources I came upon the Tampa Bay Birth Network. Their website had great resources. At that time they were offering the Childbirth Options seminar. I had discussed with my husband my wishes to have a natural birth possibly outside of a hospital environment. He was not 100% sure that it would be the best option. He agreed to attend the Childbirth Options Seminar. After attending the seminar, my birth plan turn out to be OUR birth plan; my husband was 100% with me. The Tampa Bay Birth Network presenters did such a great job. Also, having the opportunity to speak one on one with members of the network really helped us as well. We felt welcomed and felt comfortable to ask questions. I would recommend this seminar to anyone that wants to obtain more information on childbirth options in the Tampa Bay area, and especially if you are wanting to enlighten your partner or a family member as to why you have made certain choices related to your baby's birthday." - R.H.
