Fruitful Vine Midwifery Service

First time Mama receiving her baby.
Home Birth Practice - Freestanding Licensed Birth Center - Water Birth

Fruitful Vine opened on May 18, 1998 by Sharon Schmidt, Licensed Midwife, to offer a safe place for women and families looking for alternative birth options. We started out as a home birth practice and on September 13, 2005 we expanded by opening Jacksonville's first birth center in 21 years.
