Hello again! It’s been awhile but I’ve just been trying to get into a new rhythm and spend as much time off the computer as possible. I am more than half way done with my doctorate at this point but am taking a short break until January to focus on my new job. My hope is to graduate with my DNP in 6/2020 and forever be done with school.
In April I started my first midwifery job in St. Petersburg with Women’s Care Florida at Absolute Health & Wellness. I found the cutest little house about 3 minutes from the office and 8 minutes from the hospital- literally a God send.
We have two offices we work out of- one on 5th Ave and one on MLK. We deliver at Bayfront Babyplace. It’s a beautiful hospital with large labor and postpartum rooms. Also easy to find- only one floor to remember- you walk in and go up the elevators to the third floor. Feels a little like home since I worked on the third floor at my old hospital for five years.
Our team is comprised of 3 OBGYNs and 5 CNMs. I honestly can say everyone has been nothing but supportive and so helpful. It’s a really wonderful group of ladies who truly care about women and each other.
If you are looking for holistic well woman preventative care, birth control counseling, have a gynecological problem you want to discuss with someone who will actually listen, or want to have evidence based, empowering prenatal/labor/postpartum care and you’re in the St. Pete area- feel free to contact me through this site or call our office. I’d be happy to answer any questions and chat with you.
If I’ve learned anything over the past few months- the words of Dr. Neel Shah have hit home more than ever…
“It is important to remember that people have goals other than simply emerging from childbirth unscathed…Safety during labor is the floor of what people deserve. What we should all really be aiming for is the ceiling: care that is not just safe, but also supportive and empowering.”
Hope everyone had a lovely summer spent with family and friends outside!
