Our Stories

The Birth of Skylar
The Birth of Skylar
Baby Skylar came into this world this morning around 3 a.m. He is perfect in every way. It was another successful and memorable water birth. I almost didn’t leave for the birth center on time because I didn’t think the contractions were close enough together. They were about 15 minutes apart when we left home. I was only 3 cm when I got to the birth center, and things progressed fast. Contractions then went from every 5 minutes to just blurring together in rapid succession. I gave birth just an hour later! After five pushes, he was here. The staff was joking that I was the ideal client and set a new record for fastest birth at the birth center...

The Birth of Sailor
The Birth of Sailor
The experience at the Central Texas Birth Center was incredible. The most calm, competent, and caring midwives and the loving environment definitely are one of the biggest reasons this was made possible; to give birth how God and nature intended it to be...

The Birth of Rhett
The Birth of Rhett
Contractions started at 3 p.m. Monday afternoon. They were consistent at about 2-3 minutes apart. We headed to the Central Texas Birth Center at 9 p.m. My wonderful, amazing midwife Salli made us feel calm and safe the entire time. Contractions started getting much more intense, and closer together. I started to feel like I wouldn’t be able to make it through the night, but thankfully my husband, along with Salli and Ruth were very positive and reassuring. However, I knew that I needed this baby to come soon...

The Birth of Artemis
The Birth of Artemis
Artemis Jayne Portillo 10/7/22 Around 8am Thursday morning, still laying down, I felt my water broke. Wasn’t too sure at first but I got up and sure enough. Spent the entire day in early labor, walking, finishing up some last minute shopping, hubby being amazing and washing every piece of linen for us. Living in the middle of the Hillcountry, we are an hour away from everything. We figured we’d be in the area of the birth center however, nothing was happening yet and we were tired so we decided to go back home. Not even after a couple of hours of being home, around midnight I went into active labor...

The Birth of Legend
The Birth of Legend
I finished a 12 week nurse contract on a Saturday at 38 weeks + 2 days pregnant and I had been having braxton hicks daily for months! I finished my contract on Saturday, did some last minute maternity pictures Sunday, went to work Monday morning to work my last day at my IV drip nursing job and started having legit contractions around 1:30. I knew baby boy wasn’t going to come in 5 minutes so I still went to pick up my food from Chipotle I had already ordered for a friends birthday, went by Align for one more chiropractor adjustment and went ahead and stopped by the birth center to pick up the birth pool before heading home to “rest”. (P.S. it amazes me how people can rest when they’re in labor. Even though this wasn’t my first baby, I was still too giddy to sleep!)....
