Our mission is to offer education and resources to help families make informed choices, and to build a community of strong, confident families.
Doulas are professionally trained in childbirth to provide information, education, emotional and physical support to a birthing woman throughout the birth process.
The use of doulas in labor & delivery has proven to be a very powerful force. It drastically reduces interventions and helps women and their families feel more empowered, no matter what birth plan the have!
Home birth with our licensed professional midwives provides you with 100% personalized care. We encourage the mother to follow her instincts by laboring in private, walking, using the tub, eat and drink as needed, listen to music, and take an active part in all decision making througout the birth process.
Our licensed El Paso midwives support the natural physiological process of pregnancy and birth with as little intervention as possible. They focus on “woman center care” that provides each of their clients with individualized education, counseling, and care though out pregnancy, labor and birth and the postpartum time. They support the idea that women are capable of making the appropriate choices for themselves and their baby with a “true informed consent”.
Our educators will help you prepare for what you can expect during your pregnancy, labor, birth and more. We offer the following variety of philosophies and approaches to prenatal classes:
*The Birthing Body: Techniques for a medication-free labor
