Founded in early 2009, Barefoot Birth extends specialty, personalized birthing services to naturally-minded families in the Tampa Bay area. Started by Charlie Young, a Florida Licensed Midwife who graduated from the Florida School of Traditional Midwifery, Barefoot Birth works alongside families on their varied needs as they welcome new members into the world. From home birth services to pregnancy, birth, postpartum doula support and even concierge prenatal care that extends long after the child joins the family, Barefoot Birth and its team creates a plan of action with the mother and family that meets, and exceeds, needs and expectations throughout the birthing process.
Additional services are also available from Young and Barefoot Birth. Her staff extends massage therapy, professional family photography and even belly casting to interested families. Barefoot Birth aims to make the entire experience of birth as beautiful as possible as individuals prepare for and enter parenthood. The business has extended these services to families in Florida for eight years and the midwifery niche continues to grow in the region and for Barefoot Birth as well, continuing to add amenities to its available options to families seeking a stigma-free, natural birthing environment.
