There are no surprise costs for your birth, or baby care. We discuss price iin writing at your first visit. We do not upcharge or add costs.
When planning for your birth- The Natural Birthing Center is often less than the insurance deductible for a typical hospital delivery. While we are cash only, we can help you file a claim by giving you a superbill.

>>>>>>>>>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 baby, naturally. 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 focus on you. Our goal is for each midwife on staff to have no more than 3 clients per midwife. We currently have two midwives. Yolandi and Sandra.
It is our joy to serve you during your birth.
An informed client and taking personal responsibility for your own healthy birth is the hallmark of a home birth or birth center delivery. We encourage childbirth education during pregnancy. Childbirth education will help you make decisions on your behalf. A midwife can offer guidance, but it is you who knows her body best; It is you who makes dietary choices; It is you who creates your own health and exercise plan. It is you who ultimately gives birth. You are the parents of this new baby, and you know what is best for your child. We offer guidance. We respect your autonomy. Autonomy is your right to make decisions on your own behalf. Our goal is to work with you for a safe birth.
Home birth with no intervention is the gold standard.
While rare, sometimes complications could arise during birth. We are properly trained in handling emergencies should one arise. This may also be an indication to move to a higher level of care. i.e. a hospital that has an OB unit. We want you and baby to be healthy.
Our birth center is cleaned by protocols that are 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 and 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 ARE HAPPY TO ANSWER YOUR QUESTIONS.
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 at home or in our Round Rock birth center.
It may take a few visits to truly get to know your midwife. A midwife undergirds the foundation of a home birth. Midwives are not the same. There is a midwife for every mother. We believe in honesty, integrity and supporting your quest for a healthy birth.
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.
Due to the amount of time we spend with each client, we limit the amount of clients we are able to accept each month. Our facility slots often fill quickly.
