Published midwifery expert Charlie Young

March 29, 2017
With only eight years as a midwife, Florida native Charlie Young is still considered a growing expert in the birthing field. She earned an education from the Florida School of Traditional Midwifery and began assisting families as they chose a nontraditional, less medicalized experience. Through her business Barefoot Birth and alongside others, she served as a doula and attended hundreds of births since 2009 when she began her journey. She works regularly as an advocate in midwifery alongside multiple organizations, including The Birth Survey, The Florida Council of Licensed Midwifery and the Coalition for Improving Maternity Services.

In addition to this work, this Florida Licensed Midwife has become a published writer and expert speaking on the topic. Interviews with Young have been run by magazines and newspapers such as the local Tampa Tribune and Tampa Bay Times as well as industry publications SQUAT Birth Journal, FOCUS Magazine and Radical Doula Blog. She has also provided commentary to the Tampa NBC affiliate, including discussion on her community project The Barefoot Bus, which provided mobile prenatal care around the region under a belief that all families deserve quality, safe care. Young is both an expert and advocate to the midwifery and birthing community around the Tampa and Florida region and beyond.
