That means they will always strive to nurture both mother and child during what should be a wonderful time for the entire family. They consider themselves partners in the process as well as a care provider. Overall, Barefoot Birth seeks to foster greater family bonding and a greater level of happiness with the overall birth experience. Their unique services are available to families all over the Tampa Bay Area.
