This is great news!!!!!! Mere miles from downtown and super accessible so maybe there will be less babies born on I-45 and I-10 as mamas rush out to the much further birth centers!
I am having my third and managed to find an AMAZING midwife named Afua Hassan. I truly cannot say enough about her. I'm pretty darn picky about who I choose to attend my births (and I trained as a midwife, so my standards are understandably high) and after meeting Afua, I knew I was in love with her. She just has that...that aura, that glow. She is one of the most "real" midwives I've ever met. My husband said the same thing :)
I really am flabbergasted about how I'd never heard of her, especially as she's been practicing here for 20+ years. And now she has a free standing birth center that she just licensed (last year?). I'll be having a homebirth with Afua, but for those who want a BC, she's the closest for those of us close to Downtown/The Heights/Midwtown.
Located in the third ward right off 288, it's a sweet 2 labor-suite birthing center. Definitely make an appointment to chat with Afua and see her center, The Birthing Place. And pass it on-- this is great news for Houston!
Afua Hassan, LM
Happy Birthing Everyone!
