Birthing Center in the Fort Worth and Dallas Area
Our center was established in 1981 and has the honorable distinction of being the first free-standing birthing facility in all of Texas. In the 37 years since being founded by midwife Helen Jolly Nelson, the Family Birthing Services center has seen the birth of more than 5,000 babies.
Family Birth Services is a fully state-licensed Dallas and Fort Worth Birthing Center facility. Each of our caregivers is highly skilled and licensed. A historic home is the site of our charming center. The home was built in 1911 and is designed to provide a comfortable, peaceful atmosphere for our clients.
Our Birthing Options
We offer a number of birthing options outside of the traditional hospital experience. Our staff is dedicated to assisting women with what we feel is the most unique and wonderful experience in life: carrying and giving birth to a child.
While many women do prefer the more traditional setting of a hospital, we are pleased to note that more and more expectant families are reaching out to us to learn more about alternative birthing options. They want to know more about the time-honored practice of midwifery. Many don’t know that one of the options offered by our center is that of labor and delivery in the comfort of their own home, aided by our capable caregivers.
Whether choosing a home birth or delivery at our beautiful center, expectant mothers will find that our focus is on her health and the delivery of a healthy baby in surroundings and conditions that maintain her dignity and comfort at all times. Intervention of outside medical assistance is only implemented in the event of unexpected circumstances which, given the comprehensive level of prenatal care provided throughout the pregnancy, is a rare occurrence.
Our staff is dedicated to assisting the mother in experiencing a worry-free, holistic birthing experience. Our methods are time-tested and proven safe and effective for both mother and child.
Three Birth Rooms to Choose From
Our center offers three cozy birthing rooms to choose from. Families are welcome to bring along items that will make the experience more personalized and comfortable for them. Whether you choose a traditional birth or any of the numerous options that will make the birth as unique and memorable as possible, the staff will assist in the creation of a personalized care plan that will take into consideration every aspect of the family’s wishes.
