Welcoming You, Your Family and Baby

At The Baby Place at Florida Hospital Wesley Chapel, you are the center of attention. Each room is private, featuring the luxury amenities you expect at a fine hotel, including complimentary Wi-Fi, flat screen TVs, Jacuzzi tubs and walk-in showers. And we provide overnight space designated for your family without visiting hour restrictions. We believe in creating a calming, joyful experience for families, so we designed our obstetrics department with you in mind:
  • Spacious labor, delivery, recovery and postpartum suites mean you have one room during your stay.
  • 42” flat screen TV with free movies, cable and connection to the internet.
  • Wireless fetal monitoring, which allows you more freedom of mobility during labor, while allowing us to continually monitor your baby.

Midwife Services

At Florida Hospital Wesley Chapel, our goal is to provide women access to the latest technology and medical expertise, along with an array of options. That’s why, we are excited to have certified nurse midwives as well as board certified OB-GYNS on our medical staff. For women who are interested in a low-intervention birth experience, we offer the best of both worlds—natural childbirth with a certified nurse midwife (CNM) in a hospital environment. This collaborative model of care offers women a wide variety of choices for their childbirth experience.

Birth Advocate

One of the extra special services we offer our moms is our Birth Advocate.  The Birth Advocate is a registered nurse with expertise in Labor and Delivery, postpartum and newborn care. She provides you with a personal consultation to customize your birth experience, schedule your childbirth classes and tour of The Baby Place. Our Birth Advocate can assist with appointments and connect you with programs such as lactation assistance and more. When questions arise during your pregnancy and even after the birth of your baby, our Birth Advocate is here to assist you. 
To speak with your personal Birth Advocate, or to schedule a tour of The Baby Place, call (813) 929-5176. This service is provided at no cost to mothers delivering at Florida Hospital Wesley Chapel. 

Additionally, our labor and delivery nurses are trained to be advocates for you during your delivery and are available around the clock to ensure your needs are met throughout your hospital stay.

Pregnancy and Early Childhood e-Flash

Want to receive weekly, customized information about your stage in your pregnancy or your baby/toddler’s growth? Our Pregnancy and Early Childhood e-flash is just what you need.

Childbirth Education at Florida Hospital Wesley Chapel

Our Childbirth Education programs provide essential information to help new parents be better prepared for their birth experience. Parents will learn about the end of pregnancy, stages of labor, how the birth process unfolds using real birth stories, relaxation techniques, helpful partner support tips, possible medical interventions and much more.

We offer a three-week Prepared Childbirth series as well as a four-hour Childbirth Express class, which is a condensed version of the three-week series. These classes are taught by an OB RN who is also a Certified Childbirth Educator. In addition to these, we offer a one-night Better Breastfeeding class, taught by an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC).
