    It is important to choose a midwife that you trust. A midwife who has integrity. A midwife willing to listen to you, and focus on YOU during your birth. And who will speak honestly to you when you need it most. 

Compassionate Care 

     Our prenatal care is designed to fit you and your family's needs.  Sandra offers home births, birth center births, and water births. Sandra has prenatal clinics in both Round Rock and Salado, for your convenience.


     When you choose The Natural Birthing Center, you get personalized, one-on-one care.  One on one care is the hallmark of midwifery. You'll have the support of someone who's committed to you and your birth.  She does NOT share call with other midwives.


     The Natural Birthing Center believes in Evidenced Based Care for homebirth. What this means is that we look at the latest research and implement that research into you and your baby's care.   

Affordable & Flexible

     The Natural Birthing Center takes pride in offering you honest and upfront billing, NO surprise fee's! Your prenatal care, delivery, postpartum care, and newborn care for the first 6 weeks after delivery is all part of our package fee. It is discussed and in writing. I treat you with the same respect I wish to be treated.


    When planning for the cost of your delivery-  The Natural Birthing Center is often less than your insurance deductible for a typical hospital birth! Woffer a flexible payment plan, paid over 12 months. We  help you file a claim with your insurance to get the best reimbursment. The insurance check will come directly to you.

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 is a powerful, healing, and  life-changing experience.  At the Natural Birthing Center your care is personalized to meet your needs.  My 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 some traumatic thing that leaves you wondering how your birth could have been improved. 


     We know that a woman remembers her  birth her whole life. Should it not be gentle, powerful and a wonderful memory? Due to the nature of birth, it may not always be gentle.  It does not always go the way you like it to.  At the Natural Birthing Center we do our best to meet your birth experience with gentleness and safety while supporting your needs and wishes.  At The Natural Birthing Center we respect choice.  We  listen to you.  We support your choices.


     We know that one can have a beautiful birth while being safely attended to 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 we are sitting in prenatal appointments, addressing inner fears and barriers. We are taking the time to get to know one another, create comfort.  I am listening to your ideas for your birth. 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.  I respect your birth plan.  When that day arrives, during your birth, my focus is on you.  I believe in the golden rule.  I treat you the way I would like to be treated.  With respect. With the knowledge that this is your birth. I am a  guest at your birth to ensure you and your baby's safety, and to guide the birth energy toward your optimum birth and healthy motherhood. 



      Ina May stated in her book Birth Matters " Fear plays a large role in childbirth in the U.S., and is fed by ignorance. Knowlege is empowring because it is an essential step toward stepping away from fear. Women who think their minds and bodies are separate from each other have little idea how much their thoughts and feelings affect the course of labor." page 27

     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.
