We proudly serve a 1 hour radius of both Tampa, FL and Spring Hill, FL  with traditional midwifery care that serves families right where they are most comfortable--their homes! This includes home birth in Hillsborough, Pasco, Pinellas, Polk, Hernando, and Citrus counties. 

Charlie Rae and Erica are independent Licensed Midwives who provide personalized prenatal care for families who are planning a home birth. Over the years, they have had the honor of caring for hundreds of families who have welcomed their babies in the peace and comfort of their home and birth center settings right here in Tampa Bay and surrounding areas. Barefoot Birth is the ONLY independent home birth practice in Tampa that utilizes the two midwife model similar to the standards in the UK at every birth. 

We believe that for healthy pregnancies, birth is a normal process that typically unfolds without need for intervention. We base our practice on transparency, open communication, and respect for your family's unique needs and desires. We are your partner and your care provider, as we walk the journey to your birth together. Midwifery care blends together tradition and science to bring to women the art of high-touch, low-tech care that has been shown to lead to better outcomes for both mama and baby, increased family bonding, and greater satisfaction with the overall birth experience.

We are pleased to support women seeking a Vaginal Birth After Cesarean (VBAC), and consult on a case by case basis for other special circumstances.

Serenity’s birth was amazing and I will be forever thankful for Charlie. How amazing she was as my midwife. She was hands off unless I needed her, it was almost as if she was in my head knowing what I needed without me saying a word, maybe just a moan. Charlie will always hold a special place in my heart for the rest if my life.

I’m still in awe of our whole home birth experience. I know that her encouragement throughout my pregnancy, as well as her honesty and support of me throughout my labor, played a big role in having a successful VBAC. I’m so grateful. I would recommend her time and again. In fact, I do!
