"The Birth Place is a quiet, relaxing, safe and caring environment - what better place to give birth!"
The Birth Place featured on CBS News cbsnews.com/2300-204_162-10016774.html and Huffington Post for Mother's Day 2013 huffingtonpost.com/christy-turlington/post_4763_b_3255405.html#slide=2436183 Many thanks to Christy Turlington and her organization Every Mother Counts (everymothercounts.org) for standing with us to provide EVERY woman with quality prenatal care and education. Check us out!
Dozens of people lined Orange Avenue in Orlando on Monday as part of the National Rally for Change, with a goal to improve maternity care in the United States by encouraging "evidence based practice." According to Improving Birth.org, the US lags behind 49 other industrialized nations in maternal survival rates.
"That we are losing as many women, sometimes more women than in third-world countries ... so for a developed nation, we are doing very poorly when it comes to maternal health," midwife Jennie Joseph said. Joseph says there is definitely a correlation between unnecessary interventions, like elective inductions and surgeries, and these poor outcomes.
"Women need to stand up, to ask the questions, understand the answers, do the research and get some support," she said.
Durante mucho tiempo uno de mis sueños ha sido llegar a TODAS las mujeres embarazadas efectivamente y compartir las noticias acerca de lo que ofrecemos en The Birth Place. Estoy muy contenta de poder introducir el Hispanic Pregnancy Resource Center - un programa que se ofrece en español a mujeres embarazadas, familias de Winter Garden y áreas limítrofes. Beatriz Malpica es la directora del programa (quien ha experimentado nuestros servicios en The Birth Place), y Stephanie Matos es la coordinadora del programa y la doula. Nuestros servicios incluyen atención prenatal y de parto en un ambiente educativo, con grupos de apoyo y proveyendo interpretes hispanos en todo momento. Las mujeres tienen la opción de dar a luz en The Birth Place o en el hospital. Para más información por favor llame al 407 656 6938 y pregunte por Beatriz. - Jennie Joseph
