At Birth Bliss Midwifery, we believe that home is the perfect place for bringing new life into the world. As your licensed midwife, it is my purpose to provide holistic pregnancy care and empower you through your own unique home birth experience. I will be by your side each step of the way, offering evidence-based guidance while trusting in the wisdom of your body. Mothers hold such power, strength and intuition – especially during childbirth. My goal is to help provide support and guidance to families in the San Antonio area, as they safely welcome their child into the world.

OUR BIRTH PHILOSOPHY

PROTECTING THE SACRED ART OF GENTLE BIRTH

My philosophy is that birth is a sacred, empowering event that should be tailored to each family’s wishes. I believe in the innate strength and wisdom of the body to give birth naturally. My role as a home birth midwife is to nurture that power with compassionate, personalized support so you can welcome your baby with confidence and joy. I will walk by your side, providing a peaceful home birth environment with gentle guidance so you can listen to your intuition. As your midwife my goal is for you to feel respected, informed and excited through each step of your pregnancy and home birth journey. I blend tradition with science, promoting health while trusting in the transformative beauty of home birth. When we work together in trust, your birth can be a safe, loving experience that is like no other.

I take great care in nurturing and educating your entire family. I will help you make informed decisions with up-to-date, evidence-based information regarding your prenatal care, home birth, water birth, labor and delivery, new baby, and postpartum care. I deeply believe informed, consensual collaboration is the foundation of empowered, gentle birth.

With information rooted in both traditional holistic midwifery practices, as well as the latest scientific advancements, I support the health and wellness of both mama and baby throughout their pregnancy, birth and postpartum experience. Health, safety and attentive care are at the forefront of my midwifery practice.

Testimonials

I’ve been meaning to write this review for some time, as Heather was my midwife for our first born boy. I just haven’t been able to find the words to describe what an amazing experience it was and how she was the best midwife for us to choose to have a home birth. I am thankful for the care she put into the entire process. Heather was truly invested in the wellbeing of our entire family unit and I never felt like just a patient with her. When the day came for me to give birth, she gave me the space I wanted and needed while being very present. She is very in tune with what the mother needs during such an important time. She made me feel empowered and strong as well as putting me at ease going through something for the first time. Heather’s knowledge and care for myself and my baby gave me so much trust in her. Heather will make your birthing experience something that is so precious, memorable and positive. All midwives who dedicate their lives to this profession, are amazing human beings for the work they do. Heather, however, is the best of the best. I am thankful every day when I look in the eyes of my wild and crazy boy, that she helped bring him into this world, safe and healthy.

Heather was my midwife for the birth of my second child, and helped me achieve the most beautiful experience I could have hoped for. She was a wonderful guide through my pregnancy, always taking the time to walk through all my choices and options, and was especially helpful helping me navigate pregnancy during the earliest days of Covid. The best part of home birth though is the days after! Heather was at my bedside for 12, 24, 36 hours after delivery for check ins, and beyond. She was so capable and able to help me correct my breast feeding, which led to a much more positive BF experience than with my first born. I’m so grateful I got to work with Heather and trusted her to deliver my Son.

Heather helped me through three pregnancies. I don’t think anyone could have given me the comfort and care that I received from her. If you’re looking for a midwife- I promise you can’t find anyone better!

Heather was my midwife for two births, and I couldn't recommend her more! Her calm, kind demeanor was just what I needed during all of my prenatal appointments and during delivery. She knew just what to do when one of my daughters got stuck in the birth canal and when she needed oxygen just after delivery. Heather took fantastic care of my babies and me after delivery as well, allowing us to have a restful and peaceful experience.

We had the pleasure of delivering our little one at home with the guidance and assistance of Heather. Through her we were able to have the autonomous birth we wanted while still having the safety of a professional by our side. Heather spent time asking us what our birth vision was and did her best to see that through so long as everyone was safe. Birth can be exhilarating and healing, in Heather's care that is exactly what we got.

My husband and I felt incredibly lucky to have found Heather to provide for us during the journey of pregnancy and our home water birth. We felt a feeling of warmth, kindness, experience, and support from the first meeting. Heather was always available to answer our questions and as a FTM I always felt respected and supported as many times I felt like I didn't know what I was doing. We had a scare early on at 12 weeks and Heather's calmness helped us stay focused through it, she remained supportive amd present checking in afterwards. One of the many things I appreciate about Heather is how she allowed me to follow my intuition and provided gentle guidance by her expertise and experience. I am a person who highly values staying as close to nature as possible, and Heather practices a hollistic approach which made me feel comfortable and safe. She knew about vitamins, nutrition, and had a ton of resources for us to learn. Every one of her recommendations was spot on. My delivery was nothing short of amazing and that was due to the wonderful birth team guided by Heather. If we are blessed to bring another life into this world, Heather will be our first call. Thank you Heather!

It’s really hard to put into words how grateful I am for Heather. She’s kind, compassionate, professional, thorough, detailed, and most of all trustworthy. She assisted me with two home births, and each time was amazing. She allowed me the space to labor with my husband while remaining a peaceful, encouraging presence and listened to my intuition/trusted me to know my body. She also has amazing intuition and attention to detail. She provides whole body care from start to finish and I couldn’t recommend her more highly.

Heather provided great support and care throughout my pregnancy and especially during labor. I was drawn in by her holistic approach to birthing and I’m so grateful to have found her! As a first time mom, I had a lot of questions and concerns, but Heather put me at ease and guided me along the way. She helped me stick to my birth plan and encouraged me the entire duration of my labor. I can’t recommend her enough! Heather has a true gift for nurturing expectant mothers and their children.
