About

Our Mission

To serve the communities of North Central Texas (including Round Rock, Georgetown, Hutto, Taylor, Temple, Belton, Waco, Austin and all surrounding areas) by providing complete midwifery care and birth services in a relaxed, loving, and homelike environment with the added safety of close proximity to the hospital.

In addition, we offer the option of homebirth for those families who wish to birth in the comfort of their own homes.

History

It has been my dream, since before even applying to midwifey school, to open a birth center.  As women, as birthing families, we need to come together. And more than that, we need a place where we are safe to share our concerns, frustrations, joys, and delights of pregnancy, birth, and parenting.

As it turned out, I spent most of my apprenticeship in birth centers, attending both birth center and homebirth. I started to piece together the kind of place that I wanted to create. I saw what worked, and what things needed to be different.  I took a very relaxed approach to my homebirth practice, knowing that it would grow and flourish as my Creator saw fit.

My birth center plan was always there…this tiny voice in my head saying that I wasn’t finished building something. As my homebirth clients grew increasingly more Northward,  I realized that there was an essential need for a birthing center in Williamson County.  Women from Georgetown, Round Rock, Hutto, Taylor, Temple, Killeen, Waco, etc were driving all the way to Austin for prenatal care and birth. It became abundantly clear that the time was right to fulfill the needs of my community and open Central Texas Birth Center.  Once the decision was made, it was amazing how the doors opened and everything fell into place.

I am humbled and honored to bring this offering to the communities of Central Texas.

Vision

Our vision is twofold. First and foremost, we are a birthing center. We will provide family centered midwifery care during the prenatal period, through birth, and into the postpartum period. You may choose to birth at the birth center or in the comfort of your own home. At the birth center, you can choose which of our 2 luxury birthing suites you would prefer to labor and birth in. Each suite is complete with a birthing tub and private bath and shower. If you choose to birth at home, we will provide you with a birthing tub so that you still have the option to labor and birth in the water if you wish. Prenatal visits are scheduled for a full hour so that you have all the time you need to have  your questions answered, feel comfortable, and develop a relationship with your midwife. You appointment can be made on  your schedule. Evening and/or weekend appointments can be scheduled if the need arises. We have a healthy respect for the fact that this is your journey, not ours, and we want to foster confidence and security at every step.

Secondly, we are a community center. We are open to classes of all sorts, from childbirth education to bellydancing and yoga. We want you to feel comfortable to stop by any time and have a cup of tea. Check the class schedule and become an active member in our community of birthing families. Even if circumstances are such that you are unable to use our services, you are still welcomed to attend classes and enjoy the community aspect of Central Texas Birth Center. We welcome every family with open arms, warm hearts, and positive wishes for a beautiful journey through pregnancy, birth, and parenting.
