Compassionate Care 

    Our Prenatal care is wholistic and natural, designed to create health and work with you. Whether you are having a  home birth, birth center birth, and/ or a  water birth, the NBC has two prenatal clinics  for your convenience. One is located in Salado, just North of Georgetown, and the other is located in Round Rock, close to Cedar Park.


     When you choose The Natural Birthing Center, you get personalized, one-on-one care for your birth.  One on one care is the hallmark of midwifery. You'll have the support of someone who's committed to you and your birth.  We have three midwives on staff. Sandra, Anita, and Ashley.  The midwife you see for prenatal care will be the midwife who attends your birth. She  will be the midwife you know and trust.


     We strive to be honest, supportive and give guidance for health and wholeness during pregnancy, birth and post delivery to create a healthy birth, mother and baby. 





Affordable & Flexible

   The Natural Birthing Center  located in Round Rock, and Salado serves everyone from Temple to Leander, and Round Rock to Killeen.  The Natural Birthing Center treats you with respect. Prenatal care, delivery, postpartum care, and newborn care for the first 6 weeks is included in your birth package. We are on call for you from 37 weeks until you deliver.  We also  provide educational preparation for a home birth or birth center birth. Price is discussed and in writing at your very first visit. We do not believe in surprise costs!


    When planning for the cost of your delivery-  The Natural Birthing Center is often less than the insurance deductible for a typical hospital birth! While we are cash only, we  help you file a claim with your insurance to get reimbursment. The insurance check comes directly to you. 

Experienced homebirth midwife Round Rock, TX

  The Natural Birthing Center offers a range of services including homebirth,  waterbirth and or birth center care. We also provide well women care such as pap smears. We limit the number of clients we see per month so that we can fully focus on you.  We would love to get to know you and be part of the joy of your pregnancy, birth, delivery and first weeks as a new mother. 


We offer a free tour of the birth center and/or interview--call today to schedule your tour!


     We schedule 45 minute prenatals to give you  plenty of time to discuss your concerns. If this is your first homebirth or birth center birth, you will have lots of questions. We expect that, and welcome questions--even hard ones.
     We want you and your family to have the best experience possible, whether it is at home or in our Salado birth center, or the Round Rock birth center.  


      It may take a few visits to truly get to know your midwife.  It is the experience and calmness of the midwife--one who listens to you, and works with you side by side in partnership throughout your pregnancy--that makes your birth special. There are midwives who will tell you what you want to hear, and there are midwives who will be honest and bless you in strong, supportive ways. Midwives are not all alike, and there's a midwife for every mother.


     Salado is centrally located 20 minutes north of Georgetown, and 15 minutes south of Temple. It is a pleasant and quick drive from Georgetown to Salado. If you take the back roads, just 15 minutes from Harker Heights. The Round Rock Birthing Center is less than 3 minutes from two hospitals and within 3 miles of three hospitals.  We are proud to have a low transport rate.












What we hear from our clients is that NOT all midwives are the same.  They are both surprised and pleased that we stand above the rest. I believe it is due to our core beliefs. 


     We know that the birth of a baby can be a powerful, healing, and  life-changing experience.  At the Natural Birthing Center your care is personalized to meet your needs.  Our goal is to support you, and your  partner to have a beautiful out of hospital birth experience. Birth can and should be a blissful experience; not traumatic.  We specialize in homebirth and waterbirth. 


     We know that a woman remembers her  birth forever. Should it not be gentle, powerful and a wonderful memory?  At the Natural Birthing Center we do our best to meet your birth experience with gentleness and safety while supporting your needs and wishes.  


     We know that one can have a beautiful birth while being safely attended with respect and gentleness.  I believe a midwife partners with you, and protects your privacy and seeks to fulfill your needs by offering choices, and respecting your choices. 


     To get to this place of optimal birthing the prenatal appointments,  and addressing inner fears and barriers is standard. We take the time to get to know one another,  and create comfort.  We listen to you. You may mention the reasons the last birth was not ideal, or was traumatic. We talk about diet, exercise,  birth and parenting preparation.  As time moves forward  toward the day you will meet your little one face to face  we talk about your birth in greater detail.  When that day arrives, during your birth, our focus is on you.  We treat you the way we would like to be treated; with respect.  With the knowledge that this is your birth and your baby.  Your birth plan is important. As the midwife, we are a  guest at your birth to ensure you and your baby's safety, and to guide the birth energy toward  optimum birth and healthy motherhood.
