Barefoot Birth’s home birth experience

March 23, 2017
The practice of midwifery extends centuries -- to Egyptian and Roman times, the Middle Ages, and midwives in the 18th century fighting against the eruption of modern medicine. Midwifery today has become a consistently common practice, and one preferred by many families seeking an alternative to over-medicalized birthing procedures extended in hospital settings. Midwifery offers home settings with experienced men and women who provide one-on-one service -- all of which Barefoot Birth extends to naturally-inclined families in the Tampa, Florida area. This business, as started in 2009, provides prenatal care, lab work, water birth tub rental, holistic childbirth education, support through birth and immediate postpartum, breastfeeding support, and sensitive postpartum care that includes three postpartum visits during those first vital and precious weeks. Barefoot Birth’s service doesn’t end at that momentous occasion of birth, but begins long beforehand with planning then ensures the family is prepared properly for parenthood.

What started as filling a niche in the Tampa region by Florida Licensed Midwife Charlie Young has become a flourishing company serving mothers and families throughout several counties in the state. Barefoot Birth offers flexible payment options, free consultations and inclusive plans with personalized actions to make the experience fit needs as best as possible, including any desires for hospital births over home births -- though those are often preferred. Barefoot Birth works with mothers to always discover if midwifery is a right fit, then carving out the right plan from prenatal to lactation.
