Experienced Homebirth Midwife

   Serving all the areas-  Georgetown, Leander, Cedar Park, North Austin, Temple, Burnet,  Belton, Round Rock, Copperas Cove, Killeen and More!


    We believe in beautiful,  dynamic physiologic birth.  We support you in a collaborative birth partnership to achieve your healthy birthing goals with safety.


    Sandra has been certified and practicing since 1993. 


Our Stats:  In 2019 our cesarean section rate was 0%.  No one who started labor with us had a cesarean section! In 2018 that rate was 5%.  In 2017 that rate was 8.5% and in 2016 it was 2.3%.  Our transport rate is low.  Mostly we transport for moms who decide in labor they want pain relief.





    We believe in waterbirth and make it accessible to you.  Sandra has 23 years of water birth experience.


    Pregnancy care at The Natural Birthing Center includes, but may not be limited to the common pregnancy labs,  measuring the growth of baby, palpating the baby for position, listening to baby's heart, referrals to other providers if/ as  necessary,  surveillance of metabolism and BP, fruit and vegetable supplements, and  an educational curriculum to prepare for the actual birth. 


     Our staff are Christian midwives with a life affirming belief in you and your family.

Affordable & Flexible 

   At The Natural Birthing Center our goal is to give you the best value for your dollar. 


   There are no surprise costs! The price is discussed and in writing at your first visit.  We do not upcharge or add in 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 will help you file a claim.


The Natural Birthing Center specializes in Prenatal care, delivery, postpartum care, and newborn care for the first 6 weeks. We are on call 24/7  from 37 weeks until you deliver.  We provide educational preparation for a home birth or birth center birth. The insurance check comes directly to you. 

Round Rock midwife offers homebirths, water births and birth center options.

  >>>>>>>>>Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you.  Before you were born, I set you apart.  Jeremiah 1:5.<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

     Our Goal is a safe and healthy mother and infant.  We also want your birth to be special.  To accomplish this goal We limit the number of clients we see per month so that we can fully focus on you.  Our goal is for each midwife on staff to have no more than 3 clients. It is our joy to serve you during your birth.  Being informed and taking personal rresponsibility is the hallmark of a home or birth center birth.  We encourage childbirth education during pregnancy and birth preparation as that will help you have the most optimal birth. We believe home birth sets the Standard of care.


     While rare, sometimes complications could arise during a specific birth.  We are properly trained in handling emergencies should one arise. 


      Our birth center is cleaned by protocols reviewed and approved by the State of Texas.  Our laundry recieves a minimum of two separate washes, the second wash utilizing bleach and heat.  Our linens are dried on very hot temperatures. The tubs, and beds are deep cleaned between clients. We know that cleanliness, handwashing are just the beginning of preventing illness and infections in our clients.



We offer a free tour of the birth center and/or interview for those seeking home birth. It is important to meet and get to know your midwife before you choose your midwife. --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 midwife SHARED home birth or birth center birth, you will have lots of questions. We 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  your midwife--one who listens to you, and works with you side by side in partnership throughout your pregnancy.  A midwife undergirds the foundation of a home birth.  Midwives are not all alike, and there is a midwife for every mother.  We believe in honesty, integrity and doing what we say we will do, and keeping our word. 


     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,  it is just 20 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. It holds steady at 10 percent. 








Our midwives stand out because of 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 know that a woman remembers her  birth forever. Should it not be a gentle, powerful and 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 to the best that we can.  It is a partnership.  It is you who is giving birth and we provide the background. 


     We know that one can have a beautiful birth while being safely attended with respect and gentleness.  A midwife partners with you, and protects your privacy and seeks to fulfill your needs by offering choices, and respecting your choices. You may change your mind in birth.  We will go with you to the hospital and support you there. (During Covid 19 lock downs, the hospitals are not allowing more than one person with mom.)


     To get to this place of optimal birthing 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.  It then becomes our goal to helpl you  re-write the script for this birth. We talk about diet, exercise,  birth and parenting preparation. The prenatal appointments include addressing inner fears and barriers. As time moves forward, during your birth, our focus is on you.  We treat you the way we would like to be treated; with respect and kindness.  With the knowledge that this is your birth and your baby.  Your birth plan is important to us. 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.  We know that it is you who is giving birth, and you who creates the reality your birth.
