The Birth Place is a unique full-service facility providing world-class midwifery and womens health care. We strive to create a supportive, educational experience in a relaxed, friendly and professional environment.

The solution - a birth center providing quality, affordable women's health care and in which our patients' safety and well being always comes first.

This link has some useful information about swine flu: Dr. Mercola discusses swine flu.
Orange County Health Department - updated October 14, 2009
Note: *To align our media updates with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention schedule, we will send a media update each Wednesday noting any significant events that have taken place during the reporting period. Please note that following the lead of the Centers for Disease Control and the World Health Organization, we will no longer be collecting numbers of confirmed H1N1 Swine Flu cases.
Orlando - The first initial shipments of H1N1 Swine Flu vaccine have arrived in Orange County. All of the doses are in the form of nasal mist and therefore are not suitable for pregnant women or individuals with underlying medical conditions. Healthy people 2 to 49 years of age are eligible for this type of nasal mist vaccine.
ORLANDO Her reasons for being tremendously involved with two local benevolent organizations while trying to balance a career and mentor her 19 year-old daughter are quite simple: intuition and common sense.
It was Fifth Third Bank Orlando Magic Maker Monica May's intuition that led her to become extensively involved with the programs Common Sense Childbirth Inc., and Consider Your Image, a non-profit organization she founded herself. And it's common sense that drives her today.
"I know there is a simple way to life," explains May. "If there is an opportunity to help put together a road map for young people, I want to be a part of that."
But May has been more than just a part of children's lives. In her work with Common Sense Childbirth, Inc., May helps to inspire a change in maternal child healthcare. The program empowers mothers (especially young and indigent) to bring healthy babies to term. The model was created by May's close friend, Jennie Joseph, a midwife who specializes in providing prenatal healthcare and nurturing to populations that typically don't get the proper treatment in traditional health settings.
