In case of an approaching storm, please do NOT proceed to the birth center.

Breath Of Life is in an evacuation zone, so no one will be present to help you.

If you are evacuating, please take your Healthy Start Passport with you so you have a basic record of your care so far.

If you are in the last weeks of pregnancy and fear going into labor during the storm, or if you have any signs of impending labor, please go to the nearest hospital with obstetrical services. These include:

            St. Petersburg General Hospital

            Morton Plant Hospital

            Bayfront/All Children’s Hospital

            Mease Countryside Hospital

            Community Hospital—Trinity

            University Community Hospital

            St. Joseph’s Hospitals

            Tampa General Hospital

            Brandon Regional Hospital

If you experience a health problem related to your pregnancy, attempt to call the Midwife first. If unable to reach one of the Midwives, please go to the nearest hospital with obstetrical services. 

The Midwives will be available by phone as long as cell service is available. Please call the answering service by dialing the office number, 727-216-1420. If that number is out of service, try the alternate number 727-777-6860.

Your safety, and your family’s safety is always our first concern! Prepare before any storms approach, and protect yourself and your family.
