Hello, I am Anna Poulin. I have taught high school for 18 years as my second career. My first being in Public Health. I have a M.P.H., a masters in public health, concentration in community health. I teach Health Science Technology Education for students who want to pursue a career in the health industry. I have known Kathy Vande Giessen for 12 yrs, had students rotate thru her facility for several years until I changed school districts... even was privileged to catch a few of my student's babies.. I have studied natural childbirth for more than 25 yrs. I presently work at the Birth Center as a part-time Doula for 6 yrs. now... I also provide childbirth classes specific to the Center's clients.
I am enrolled inHCT school to certify as a Health Coach. .... much of my childbirth class involves nutrition and the future well being of families. We are what we eat and what we surround ourselves with the environment.
Working with Kathy has been very positive. She works with the patien'ts desires and wishes. As a trained Nurse Mid-wife she implements technology required to monitor the mother'sand baby's progress thru-out the labor. Such as taking blood pressures, using the dopler to listen to the baby's heart beat on a regular basis. We have had many wonderful water births experiences, the mothers are successful with breastfeeding. And most importantly the mothers are fully supported, emotionally and spiritually....We do not interfer with anyone's preferences on any level. Meaning nothing is done without the mother's and father's/or significant other's informed consent.
I would suggest anyone who wishes to learn further about the North Houston Birth center that they visit with Kathy at the Center pls. call 7136994211. or myself at 832 659 4981...Second hand information could be misleading...it is always best to do the research yourself.
