No matter how busy she is, even if she’s been up all night with a birth, she still manages to make sure everybody is well taken care of & leaves her office feeling safe and important. I’m pretty sure Jennie Joseph is a super hero.

Such a humanitarian; right up there with Mother Theresa! She is passionate about her ever dying craft and will fight to keep Natural Child birth alive!” Through her expertise combined with her kind, skillful hands; surely she has touched the lives of so many who thought, perhaps there was no hope in this political world of medicine. I know that many a family hold a special place their hearts for Jennie and her staff. Jennie is a one of the only remaining examples of someone who truly does what she does for the love of it! I say “Let’s have Babies the way it was supposed to be”.

Nicole wrote: “We have had four healthy, beautiful babies with Jennie at our side.” Jennie’s program gives pregnancy a whole new meaning. With all of the ups and downs of pregnancy Jennie is one of the best things about the experience of being pregnant and caring for our unborn child. Our family has discussed moving out of state on a number of occasions and the one drawback remains having to leave our dear midwife, Jennie, who is really regarded as an extension of our family. You will quickly learn that one of Jennie’s priorities is to treat pregnancy as the wonderful family event it is and she has earned our children’s adoration for that. We have had three healthy, beautiful babies with Jennie at our side and our last one weighed in at an amazing 9 lbs 3oz!!! Anyone blessed enough to be a patient of The Birth Place is sure to reap the rewards! Tara wrote: If I ever have another child I am going straight to Jenny and Kendra! Karen  wrote:”Our experience at the Birth Place was phenomenal. Everything went so smoothly and beautifully, it almost makes us want to have another baby!” We have three boys already and have decided that we’ve had enough children, but our experience at the Birth Place was just that wonderful. Our labor started around 5:00 p.m. and our son was born at 8:15 p.m. Everyone supported us, encouraged, prayed, meditated, and finally blessed the welcoming of our baby. It was nothing like the experience in the hospital which was very clinical, cold, and antiseptic. The physician “took over” the birth and the nurse almost insisted that we get the epidural. The hospital experience made us feel as if we were not even a part of the birth of our first son. At the Birth Place, we were treated like family and given total control of how we wanted it to go. I could not have had a better, more relaxed birth. We are still thanking Jennie and her staff for their love and care. Christian wrote:”I would never have my babies anywhere but The Birth Place”. I recently had my first baby at The Birth Place. I really didn’t know what to expect but Jennie really took control and made everything go so smoothly. She was calm, professional, and such a blessing to all of us. The Birth Place is such a calm setting and the perfect place to bring a new little one into the world. I can’t imagine having my future babies anywhere else. Erica wrote: Best place to be to give birth and very relaxing! I love Jennie Joseph and her team! Jeanna wrote: I labored long and hard here 14 hours despite the end result C section, I appreciated the excellent care and support! Vantrice  wrote : My family & I felt right @ home from the moment we walked in. Everyone knows my name which is a huge difference from my visits to the obstetrician w/ my past 4 pregnancies. I’m comfy @ every visit & expecting to deliver our 5th baby anyday now. Jenny & her staff are the best!! Casthra wrote: when it comes time to have a baby, there’s nothing better than having a team of people who have your back and who you can count on.

Click here to see The Birth Place Orientation  (takes a few seconds to load) which answers many questions about care at The Birth Place. Am I safe in a birth center? For a healthy pregnant woman, yes a birth center delivery is safe.  There are certain health issues that risk a women out of delivering in a birth center, your midwife will go over that with you on your first visit and an individualized plan of care for a safe pregnancy and delivery will be carefully developed. What if I have to go to the hospital? Sometimes occasions arise during labor where it is necessary for you to finish the delivery at the hospital. In these cases we prepare you for the transfer, travel with you via ambulance, monitor you and your baby en route and continue bedside support until you are delivered. We liaise with the hospital staff and medical team, share the medical records and reports, and assist the nurses and physicians in keeping as close to your birth plan as possible.  Essentially, even in the case of a transfer during labor, your Birth Place team is right there with you. Do you offer pain medication at the birth place? Pain medication is not offered at The Birth Place as it increases the risk for mom and baby. We use other comfort measures such as hydrotherapy (water birth, showers), aromatherapy, music, massage, position changes, birthing ball and birthing stools as needed.  Women have been giving birth without pain medication from the beginning of time and with the correct level of planning and support a natural, un-medicated, low-intervention experience is achievable and most often the gentlest way to bring your baby into the world. Can I have as many people in the room as I want? Yes, we encourage family-centered care, however there may be times that some guests may be asked to step out as we take care of medical concerns and can come back in as soon as possible. Can I film my birth? Absolutely! We want you to be able to capture the moments of one of the most beautiful experiences of your life.

Giving birth with a Doula is SMART.

connections-15The latest research shows that women who work with doulas have better birth outcomes. We support doula care at The Birth Place and encourage you to consider working with a trained labor support person.  The doula generally provides phone support in early labor and joins the couple when active labor starts and stays until after the baby is breastfeeding and recovery is going well. Insurance companies are slowly beginning to reimburse Doula Care, and some mothers find that their flex-spend accounts will pay for it.  Starting fees for a certified doula range between $495 and $800. Kathy Bradley with Childbirth Concierge can help you find a doula that is the right fit for you. Contact Kathy at: 321-213-1112 or Student/Intern Doulas from our Midwifery School are sometimes available based on need and income level.

How It WorksPrenatal Easy Access ClinicThe Birth Place EspanolAppointmentsPayment OptionsContact Us
Best of Both Worlds Many years ago women began coming to Jennie for personalized midwifery care but risked-out for a birth center delivery, or desired access to pain medications and chose to deliver in the hospital.  Realizing there was a huge need, Jennie created relationships with area obstetricians partnering with them to deliver her patients in the hospital.  Since then our midwifery team has grown and our clinic is renowned for providing excellent maternity care. This service is unique to The Birth Place and  allows the benefits of midwifery model care during the prenatal and postpartum periods while creating smooth and coordinated access to our collaborating hospital teams for your delivery. Your package includes the service of one of doulas for your planned hospital birth.

NO ONE IS TURNED AWAY! Prenatal care is critical for the health and well being of mom and baby. In a time where costs are rising and insurance hard to acquire our Easy Access Clinic is a proven solution. We provide additional help with applying for Medicaid for pregnant women. Regardless of ability to pay, pending insurance, citizenship or crisis we will support you … “because every woman deserves a healthy baby”. The Birth Place is home to the original Easy Access Prenatal Care Clinic and is located in Winter Garden, Florida.  All Easy Access clinics operate under The JJ Way® Maternal Child Health (MCH) health care system developed by midwife Jennie Joseph, LM, CPM.

Education-1An Easy Access Prenatal Care Clinic Provides:

First trimester “access” to prenatal care and continuity of care, as well as postpartum services regardless of ability to pay. An extended educational and social support service program – childbirth preparation; breastfeeding, parenting, nutrition, preconception and inter conception education; counseling services; mentoring; support groups, and other social services. Additional services are available for the father of the baby as well.

What are the main objectives of an Easy Access Clinic?

To increase the number of women who receive access to timely maternity health care to provide practical, social, educational support, resources and referrals as a means to improving the chances for a positive pregnancy outcome.

Why is an Easy Access Clinic needed in our Community?

The current ‘OB Crisis’ in Central Florida is due to the shortage of providers, resources and safety-net services and has compounded a situation which has been steadily spinning out of control. Local health clinics are operating at capacity, making it difficult to get an appointment, or have closed down. The continual barriers that pregnant women face are once again impacting their health and the health of their unborn babies thus increasing health care and educational costs. The health care cost of caring for a preterm or low-birth weight infant in its first year of life is estimated to be about $51,600 versus a full-term infant at $2,830 (according to March of Dimes)

Does the JJ Way® Easy Access Clinic really makes a difference?

ABSOLUTELY! The JJ Way® Easy Access Clinic is proactive in its approach to care therefore it is cost-effective in the long run. A 2007 study conducted by the Winter Park Health Foundation and the Health Council of East Central Florida on 100 women receiving care revealed that there were no low birth weight or premature infants born to African American or Latina women who participated in the Easy Access program.
