Formed in 2008, Tampa Bay Birth Network was started by a small group of dedicated birth professionals. The network is first of its kind in the Tampa Bay area. Since that time, many more birth professionals have joined our network so they could provide more resources for their students, clients and patients. Also during that time, hundreds of new and expectant parents have attended our educational monthly meetings and special events, including the area's first Natural Birth and Baby Expo. Our Mission and Principles promise to offer educational materials to new and expectant parents who are interested in a more natural approach to pregnancy and parenting.
An exciting development in our on-going growth came in April of 2009 when the TBBN became a Florida not-for-profit corporation. In January 2011, we were approved by the IRS to be certified as a 501(c)(3) organization. This will allow us to apply for grants that can help us offer even more educational programs for pregnant and new parents in the Tampa Bay area.
