One of my favorite places to serve as a birth doula for pregnant families in the Dallas, Fort Worth area is at Inanna Birth Center in Denton!
As you may know, in addition to my work as a birth doula, I am a midwife assistant at Inanna Birth Center. When I have a doula client birthing at Inanna, it has such a special feeling. It's always an extra special birth with our midwives and the midwife assistant that attends the birth since we all work together regularly and know each other so well. It really makes for a perfect, cohesive birth team! After a recent birth I was joking that it's kind of like a big birthday party, celebrating the new baby and the strong momma!
Inanna Birth Center is run by Jean Sala-Smith, CNM. It is staffed by Certified Nurse Midwives in Denton and the surrounding areas. In addition to the midwives on staff at the birth center the Midwives from Caring for Women that have offices in Denton, Flower Mound and Frisco also have privileges to practice at Inanna and if a client chooses to, they can deliver at Inanna. Caring for Women is the back up Midwives and OB physicians that Inanna uses if transfer is necessary. Presbyterian Hospital of Flower Mound is the hospital they work with for non-emergent transfers.
There are two birth rooms at Inanna. Both have tubs and one of the two bathrooms also has a shower. Water birth is an option at Inanna, of course you'll need to check with the midwife to make sure that you are a good candidate. Regardless of water birth or not, hydrotherapy is a great comfort measure in labor!
Inanna serves families from all over the greater Dallas, Fort Worth area. Families come for the compassionate quality care from as far as Witchita Falls, Gainesville, Fort Worth, Keller, Grapevine, Denton, Sanger, Decatur, Chico, Carrollton, Farmers Branch, Lewisville, Flower Mound - just to name a few!
If you're expecting and are in search of a doula I would love to chat! Consultations for doula services are always free of charge!
