Hi I’m Kimberly

Throughout pregnancy, a lot of moms, unfortunately, find their voice becomes less of a priority as they turn into just another appointment in their provider’s calendar. You feel rushed throughout these visits, and it can leave you feeling overwhelmed. The truth is that many OB-GYNs simply don’t have that much time to spend with their patients. Midwives, on the other hand, have the ability to limit how many patients they assist at any one time, ensuring you have the attention you need to plan your dream delivery. As a Houston newborn photographer, I get the chance to talk to countless moms about their recent birth experiences. Here are some of the Houston midwives they have adored!

Heart Of Houston Birth & Wellness Center

6550 Mapleridge Street, Suite 100, Houston, Texas 77081

Heart of Houston Birth & Wellness Center provides you with care through every season of your life. While many Houston women start seeing the providers throughout their pregnancy, the midwives can provide you with standard gynecology appointments as well as fertility care. They set aside plenty of time for their appointments so they can sit down, chat, and give you all the information you need for a positive birth experience. The space doubles as a birthing center where you will labor in a cozy birth suite complete with birthing tubs. You will have unlimited postpartum visits for the first 12 weeks following delivery. 

Yellow Rose 

11321 Richmond Ave, Suite M101, Houston, Texas 77082

Yellow Rose provides you with two midwives for all your Houston prenatal care. The center strives to make natural birth care both accessible and affordable. They have sliding scales and extended payment plans for qualifying clients. You will have several options for your prenatal care. They can provide you with complete assistance with a planned delivery at their cozy birth center. With this option, you will be under their care every step of the way. You can also opt for montrice care. With this choice, you will still receive standard prenatal care from the team. Once your labor starts, you will deliver at your choice of hospital, and your midwife will serve as a doula while the hospital providers assist.

Midwife in the Heights

637 W. 20th, Houston, Texas 77008

Midwife in the Heights is a center that was opened up by certified nurse midwife Jackie Griggs.

With their care, you will be able to choose between a home birth or a delivery in the Bay Area Birth Center.
