THE BIRTH PLACE OPENS THE ‘HISPANIC PREGNANCY RESOURCE CENTER’
Winter Garden, Fl. Local midwife Jennie Joseph is celebrating her 30th year in the birthing business and has added a new program to her center in an effort to provide pregnancy services for more women. The Hispanic Pregnancy Resource Center offers Spanish speaking women and families an opportunity to receive onsite maternity care, hospital or birth center delivery options, referrals for local resources and facilitated support group meetings. Led by program director Beatriz Malpica and assisted by coordinator and doula Stephanie Matos, this program aims to provide the information and support that women need to have healthy pregnancies and births and to be empowered parents.
“There is a tremendous need for bilingual medical services for women in Winter Garden and we realized that we could fill that gap by opening the center. No pregnant woman will be turned away if they need help”, states Ms. Malpica. The center will be open every Thursday at 3pm at The Birth Place, 213 S. Dillard St., Suite 340, Winter Garden, Fl. 34787 and more information is available at 407 656 6938 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
