Storytelling Birth and Wellness Center Arlington

Honest Moms: Storytelling

We believe that our stories become part of who we are and are a key piece of the birthing process. We will be hosting our clients one Saturday a month to come share their birth and anything motherhood stories with other moms who have birthed here. It is our goal to provide our mothers with an opportunity to build community with other women who have shared similar experiences. Together they will process the things that have affected them the most as they move into the new seasons of motherhood.

Ultrasound Evenings

There are multiple great options locally for ultrasounds. We often refer to Makeba, owner of Ultraview Imaging in Arlington, throughout the week. We do understand that a lot of times partners and other family members would like to attend your sonogram but aren’t able to miss work. We provide the option of ultrasounds at the birth center on Wednesday evenings. Our in-house sonographer Jeff, owner of Moody Diagnostics, lives in East Texas with his family and has been a sonographer for over 20 years.

*You do NOT have to be a current BWCA client, any person in the greater Fort Worth area needing an ultrasound is welcome!*

 

We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty.
