HOUSE OF BIRTH, A HIDDEN GEM IN THE NORTH

DFW HOUSE OF BIRTH

With so many birth location options available, I’d like to share a hidden gem in the north, House of Birth Natural Birthing Services.  House of Birth  is one birth location to add to the top of your list!  Upon discovering you are expecting, you learn rather quickly that there are so many birthing options in the DFW area. You can choose a traditional hospital setting, homebirth, or birth center facility.  House of Birth is a place where “helping families change the world one birth at a time”  is their personal mission.

House of Birth is located in Sherman, Texas. They offer homebirth and birth center options for families in North Texas. Their travel radius is up to 60 minutes, making them accessible to birthers in the north Dallas areas, Southeastern Oklahoma, Paris to the east and Gainesville or Denton to the west.  This location can be especially valuable to Collin County.   The owner, Hillary Lindsey, has been practicing midwifery for over 30 years. She has attended over 1300 births and counting. How amazing would it be to say that your newborn was caught by a “granny midwife?” She is patient, kind, and highly skilled. On staff as well is a midwife student apprentice, Megan Prichard. She has been attending births with Hillary since August of 2015. Megan believes in a natural way of healing and living in her professional life and home life. Her compassionate heart shines through her work as a midwife in training.

The birth center has two suites available to labor in, if you are not choosing homebirth. Both have a large tub available for your needs too. You are always welcome to check out their facility in person or at houseofbirth.com/tour-our-birth-center/. Other options available include waterbirth and VBAC. House of Birth’s goal is to help healthy women have healthy babies. The individualized care provided by these women is impeccable and truly worth scheduling a complimentary consultation.

I will leave you with a few points to see if House of Birth is a good fit for you. All in all, as a doula, I am dearly grateful this birth center exist to give women birthing options they deserve. They are a fabulous choice in our birth world!  If you agree with the following statements, House of Birth may be right for you!

  • Having a baby is a normal part of a woman’s life.
  • The female body is designed to accomplish pregnancy, labor, and birth naturally.
  • Childbirth education can arm a woman and her family with the knowledge and skills they may need to assist them in the process.

  • A healthy woman caring for herself properly is likely to be able experience a natural, vaginal birth.
  • A woman deserves to have a midwife at her side, an expert in the birth process who can also recognize problems that require medical care.

MEET THE BIRTHING SWEET

DFW BIRTHING SWEET

“Oh, how sweet it is!”

I had the pleasure of sitting down with the wonderful Mollie Miller this go around. Mollie Miller, LM, CPM is the proud owner and midwife at the newly built The Birthing Sweet Birthing Center and Midwifery in Alvarado, TX. Being a local, it makes me especially excited to share that our birthing options are growing in this area. Mollie’s practice began 20 years ago as Maternal Instincts Midwifery and just recently expanded into The Birthing Sweet with the help of her husband. I was delighted to find out very single stud and panel has been carefully placed by this power duo. If you ask me, that makes this space that much sweeter! Once given the grand tour, she quickly filled me up with the most delectable keto donuts and coffee I’ve ever had, so, on to the fun question of….

What’s your favorite thing about being a midwife, Mollie? “I love seeing a woman feel empowered and experience her dream birth.”

When Mollie is not serving women through her midwifery practice she is focused on homeschooling her children, quilting, and advocating for foster parenting. Mollie’s background in foster parenting began with her own personal struggles of infertility. It was through this that her husband and her came to foster and eventually adopt to create their beautiful family.

When is comes to her practice, Mollie takes 2-4 clients a month, has a travel range of 1 hour for those wanting to birth at home and provides an in-home visit 2 day’s postpartum. Have any more questions you’d like to ask Mollie, or schedule a tour of The Birthing Sweet?
