Women in South Florida need a community birthing center! Magnolia Birth House will be a reality in late fall of 2014! We have a management team, a business plan, and a viable site in place. In order to make this next step a reality, we need your support. Check out our fundraising efforts online on Indeigogo and GoFundMe! as well as upcoming fundraising events.
When we opened The Gathering Place two years ago, our mission was to improve the experience of birth for all women and families in Miami by establishing a dynamic, independent center for childbirth education, breastfeeding, parenting, and women's health care. We wanted to be a catalyst for change in our community by creating an environment where women and families could learn how to be full participants in their care and ensure they would approach pregnancy and parenting with information and confidence. The successes we have had along the way are due to the support and encouragement of our community - our moms and dads and babies, our staff, our mentors and our families. Our vision is a work in progress, the next phase of which is opening a birth center within the City of Miami.
