Schedule a Tour
Would you like to tour the birth center in person? That’s great, because we would love to give you a free personal tour. During a personal tour, you are provided an opportunity to meet with a midwife in person to ask any questions you might have before making a final decision. You will also be given a small free gift as our way of saying “thank you” just for dropping by. Just give us a call today if you would like to schedule a free tour.

Just for fun, watch for the stray pillow that mysteriously appears on the floor in the hallway. That’s what can happen when midwife apprentices start having a pillow fight during a long photo session.
The Corpus Christi Birth Center is the only free standing birth center in Corpus Christi, Texas. It is quite charming and we hope to make you feel right at home every time you visit, especially when you give birth with us.
We have two birth suites. The rooms are named after the midwife, Beth’s daughters and her grandmother. The largest suite is called “Katherine Alice” after Beth’s first daughter. It is painted a soft gray and plum and features a built in birth tub complete with underwater lights and plenty of space and also has an antique four poster bed.
The second birth room is a smaller cozy blue and green room that we have named “Nora” after Beth’s grandmother. It is furnished with an antique bed and a quaint sitting area. But if you choose to labor in water or give birth in water, the room also is equipped with a portable water birth tub which can be easily assembled during your labor. (AquaDoula)
The exam room is also very comfortable and home like. The “exam table” isn’t a table at all. It is a small bed which is more comfortable and friendly. This room is named “Jessica Ann” after Beth’s youngest daughter who also happens to also be a midwife working for the San Antonio Birth Center in San Antonio, Texas.
Throughout the entire birth center you will see original art work which Beth has collected over the years, most of which were generous gifts given to her by former clients. There are even a couple of hand made quilts hanging on the walls. If you look closely you will see that baby footprints were used in the quilt designs. Beth even has her own baby shoes hanging on the wall in the hall.
When a baby is born in a room at the birth center, the parents get to “graffiti” the door of that room. It’s always fun to read the names and birth announcements on our doors.
