THE HOME OF NATURAL BIRTHING
providing complete, holistic care for expecting families in the Tampa Bay area.
“Labor of Love is a God send. After two hospital births, my husband and I decided we wanted to have a more controlled birthing experience with our last child. The midwives and staff made sure that we had the experience that we wanted. Even with a long labor, I was totally comfortable and felt safe throughout the process. They are extremely knowledgeable, professional, and loving. I would/am recommending them to all of my friends and clients!”
