“Our needs and expectations were far exceeded by the West Houston Birth Center team. Holly was patient, encouraging, and calm during the labor and I had the support of my husband and doula, Debbie Hull, all of whom, stayed by my side. I’m a huge planner, but even I couldn’t have planned a more perfect birth to welcome our little one to the world. Thank you again for being part of the biggest moment of our lives.”

Mom says, “Nicole was my midwife and did a phenomenal job. I labored to full dilation at the Birth Center, some in the pool and some walking around while Nicole and Halie monitored me. At full dilation, I was having a tough time pushing and couldn’t get Jonah past my pelvis. It came to a point I could no longer tolerate the pain and I was past exhaustion. I asked to be transferred to the the hospital for additional help. Nicole came with and stayed by my side answering questions and coaching me while the medical team helped me get Jonah born. (Nicole remained calm even with me screaming at her!) When I was postpartum, Nicole came back to the hospital to check on me. My husband I are very pleased and believe West Houston Birth Center went above and beyond.”
