We are so EXCITED to announce that we have closed on a property that will include our new home and our brand-new Birth Center! The plans are that the middle building will be our home while the pink building on the right and the loft on the left will be the Birth Center. We will not only offer a luxurious birthing experience but also gender testing as early as 7 weeks, preconception counseling, infertility counseling, keepsake ultrasounds, STD testing, well women care, labs and holistic care for menopausal women using an herbal approach.
We will continue to provide home birth services to Brownsville, Harlingen, Edinburg, McAllen, Weslaco, Pharr, San Benito, Mission, Mercedes, Raymondville, La Feria, and all the surrounding areas in the RGV. We have water birth available. VBAC options and more. Consultations are free.
Blessed Womb will provide exceptional, personalized, client-centered care to a large, diverse clientele. It will focus its outreach efforts on communities who experience poor health outcomes in order to have a more significant impact on improving the health of women in our region. Recognized for providing the highest quality care, Blessed Womb will participate in research, provide midwifery education to future providers, and advocate for improved midwifery regulations and reimbursements. These activities will further the field of midwifery and meet the growing demand for midwifery services.
The McAllen/Edinburg area needs a birth center for all women!
Women are being forced to get a repeat C-section even though ACOG reaffirms their 2010 recommendations about VBAC candidacy word-for-word: “The preponderance of evidence suggests that most women with one previous cesarean delivery with a low-transverse incision are candidates for and should be counseled about and offered TOLAC.”
ACOG reaffirms their 2010 stance on VBA2C when they say it is “reasonable to consider women with two previous low-transverse cesarean deliveries to be candidates for TOLAC and to counsel them based on the combination of other factors that affect their probability of achieving a successful VBAC.”
No mention of a prior vaginal delivery required to be a VBA2C candidate… even thought that is what some OBs tell women. And this is why it’s important to read the latest guidelines. While ACOG did say in 2004 that only those with a prior vaginal delivery were candidates for VBA2C, that recommendation was nixed from the 2010 guidelines.
