Midwife360 is moving – again!
UGH!!! The first thing that comes to mind is – I hate moving! But as I am really shifting my life to embrace positivity in every situation, I am also embracing this new change. If you’ve been following the progress and journey of Midwife360, you know that this is the 5th time we’ve moved in the 5 years that we’ve been in business. That’s a lot of moves!
I’d like to take this opportunity to tell the story of that journey…
We started out inside The Red Tent on NW 2nd Street in Boca. That was a lovely collaboration and a great first step for Midwife360 as Fadwah had not had any business ownership experience prior to leaving the Sussman group in 2014. We found that our families were not such a great fit for a spa environment as the small children are not always willing to be quiet, and the adult conversation sometimes got loud as we discussed the exciting topics of natural birth, the strength of women’s bodies, and everyone’s favorite topic – sex! So after two great years, we decided to move and give the spa-goers some peace.
We moved on the basis of another collaboration, this time with a local doula and a home birth midwife, we moved to a space off Glades Road in Boca. The rent was pricey, and the collaboration disintegrated, leaving Midwife360 acting in the responsible role. This was a low point in our evolution and nearly contributed to the end of the road for Midwife360.
We were able to pull through, though and moved into the Sol Oasis yoga studio for a brief 3 months. The space was way too small for us, and we were fortunate to find another office nearby – off Boynton Beach Blvd in Boynton Beach – and have spent the last year and 8 months quite happy in that location. However, all things come to an end eventually, and change rolled over us again. We received a 30-day notification to vacate as the Reel Shop next door needed to expand. The landlord offered us the free-standing building to the east of the current location, but the price did not fit our budget.
We have also been collaborating with the Palm Beach Maternity Center – in fact, one of our clients was their first birth a couple of weeks ago! We feel very fortunate to be nurturing this collaboration, and therefore when we discovered the office spaces across the street from the Birth Center, it was perfect timing!
And onto our new space!
We packed up the office on Friday, April 26th and moved everything over on the next day. Hiring Two Men and a Truck was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made! What a relief not having to carry boxes and heavy furniture out and in made this move much easier than in the past. As of this writing, we are still getting things settled and should be ready to see clients by Tuesday, April 30th unless we are called out to a birth! #midwifelife
We are empathetic with our clients who live to the south and sincerely apologize for the increased travel time and inconvenience they will experience. In addition, for those lucky clients who live to the north, thanks for traveling to Boynton and Boca for the past 5 years!
Midwife360 is surviving and thriving, thanks to our loyal clients and to great word of mouth. We appreciate every client who spreads the word about natural birth and gentle birth and our high-quality services. We strive to provide the best evidence-based care we can with alternative therapy options to every client. We love what we do and can’t imagine doing anything else!
