Can anyone recommend birth centers and/or HBMWs in the Richardson/Allen area?

I strongly recommend Becky Burpo, CNM, at Allen Birthing Center, from personal experience as well as her excellent reputation. She's hands-off yet highly qualified ... Personal yet professional ... All the things you want in a midwife.

You might also find some other ideas at APConnect's pregnancy page.

Good luck!

There are a bunch of apparently good ones in the area! I have picked mine already after interviewing a two and searching online for info on others, but I'm not even pregnant yet, so I don't think I'm qualified to recommend anyone.

I would recommend searching old threads here for ideas. Also, look up the Association of Texas Midwives. You can find profiles of area midwives on that web site.

Good luck!

Mama to a bilingual (Arabic/English) and cuddly 3 year old, and planning another peaceful homebirth in June.

I second the Allen Birthing Center. They are the ones who gave me my first copy of mothering magazine!:

~Me, mama to soapbox boy (1991), photo girl (1997), gadget girl (2003), jungle boy (2005), fan boy (2007) and twirly girl (2011). Twenty five years of tree hugging, breastfeeding, cosleeping, unschooling, craziness!
