I am relatively new to the Houston area. I just contacted my insurance and got a list of the following CNMs that are covered by my plan. Can anyone here make a recommendation? Unfortunately, none of these seem to be at birth centers. I live in Clear Lake (SE Houston). It seems many of these are associated with Ben Taub, UTMB Galveston, or East Houston Medical Center. If you have any thoughts on those facilities, I'd like to hear about that too. Thanks.
I'm just going to post my findings as I go along in case it helps someone else. I contacted Bernadette Olivier and she is actually at a brith center. http://www.pearlandbirthcenter.com/ However, she will not take me because I have had a c-section. My first baby was a c-section, second baby was a VBAC. Even though I have had one successful VBAC she will not take me.
I do not know of any CNMs that will do VBACs in the Houston area (that do birth center or hospital deliveries since that was all I looked for).
Mercy Otunla (Titi Otunla) is a part of the CNM midwifery team at The Women's Specialists of Houston that assisted me to deliver my first LO in 2010.
I delivered at Texas Children's Hospital. The nurses there took great care of me after the delivery and even helped me to breastfeed.
Please call them to and ask them questions. They're really a nice and very nurturing group of midwives.
