PRENATAL VISITS

When you plan to birth at home, you can also plan to have all your prenatal and postpartum visits at home too!

I come right to you for all prenatal visits (or we can meet at my office), whichever is convenient especially when there are siblings who need naps and are more comfortable in their own play spaces! Labs are drawn on your couch and we can spend an hour together at visits.  We bond and share a cup of hot tea while I monitor and medically assess you and your baby’s health.  We chat through physiological pregnancy, birth, and postpartum.  I listen to you and love hearing from you.  What’s in your heart and mind as a mother and father is worth so much and I value your insights on you and your baby. I am a team member with my clients!

We’ll go over different out-of-hospital childbirth education options and which you might connect best with. Breastfeeding education and postpartum preparation are also part of our time together. I’ll present you options for everything from where to have a diagnostic sonogram, to where to get additional referrals and resources for all your pregnancy and postpartum needs. That includes doulas, nannies, and childcare facilities. We discuss ways to improve nutrition if needed through supplements and focusing on getting as close to the source of foods as possible…living foods for living bodies! We talk through the state of Texas requirements. We’ll go over education on blood pressure monitoring, belly mapping, kick counts and I’ll demonstrate Spinning Babies exercises which are all great ways to be directly involved and connected to this miraculous journey you are on.  I’m holistic and offer a variety of ways to increase health and wellness through nutrition, homeopathic, and herbal remedies. If prescriptions are needed and physician referrals become part of the plan, I can help point you in the right direction.  We are partners together in your healthcare, so we stay in touch during the in-between times until your next visit too! I’m always just a text away! (Text during office hours please)

Fellowship & community is also in my heart. If you want to have dinner with the family or go out with my husband and me just as adults, we are always happy to have that time together to grow friendships in addition to prenatal care. Midwife means “with women” and doing life together during pregnancy and after pregnancy is just that.  It’s being with women during all stages and even breaking bread together.   

I host "birth" story-telling and other events as often as I can. Gathering for storytelling has been part of history for thousands of years.  We learn from one another.  Women can recall their birth like it happened yesterday.  They might forget the name of their doctor or midwife, but they will never forget how they felt.  Storytelling preserves the essence of birth. It keeps birth normalized, connected, and alive for the next generations.

"For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother's womb." -Psalm 139: 13

Two months ago I was honored to have Angie as my midwife to help me deliver my second baby in the comfort of my apartment home. Previously I had had a horrible experience with my first baby at a birthing center. I had doubts about doing a home birth again after experiencing so much pain and pressure from the first midwife. However, I took the chance when I met Angie. I knew she was different the day I spoke with her. I felt peace right away so we signed with her. From our first visit through the end of our postpartum visits, she remained the same - kind, positive, and so helpful in everything we needed. Most importantly, on the day of my labor, she showed up on time, she was supportive and allowed me to do it on my own. This let me know that she believed in me. She never asked me to push or to go into a certain position. She gave suggestions but never forced me into doing anything, and that’s the best thing any midwife can do because she knows that you are capable. We cannot wait to have her back again in the future!

Angie, was by far just amazing from the very beginning. I had shoulder distocia with my 1st, internal hemorrhaging with my following 3 deliveries at hospitals with midwifes, which I chose to refuse pitocin and only took a natural medicine and bleeding stopped and recovery went extremely well. If you’re looking for midwife care because you want a more natural route, but prepared with traditional medicine guidance aswell, she is perfect. Going into my 5th labor and delivery on February 16th 2024, Angie always let me know she had pitocin and many other medical items, she was fully prepared in case of an emergency if needed, and we knew the transfer and all the procedures if needed to go to a hospital. When she showed up she had so much emergency equipment on her, and thankfully all I needed was a natural medicine to help my bleeding. My 5 kids loved her. Loved to look at the baby through her mobile ultrasound right from the comfort of our home. Every visit was great. She is very knowledgeable and flexible with any requests and needs. During my labor and delivery experience she was exactly what I needed. Constantly aware of my requests and gave such exceptional care. Thanks Angie, will definitely come to you for our next and final ❤️

I had known I wanted to have a home birth long before we found out I was pregnant. I had a call with Angie early on to discuss all things midwifery and had an overwhelming sense of peace after the call- I knew she was the perfect person for prenatal care and to deliver our baby so I didn’t look anywhere else. We learned so much throughout this pregnancy about health & wellness and I appreciate that she took the time to explain in detail any questions we had. She was always quick and easy to communicate with whenever we needed her. I will 1000% recommended Angie to anyone who is considering a home birth. She is not only highly trained and quite the professional when it comes to pregnancy, labor & delivery but is also so personable. One of my favorite things about this experience is the fact that she went above and beyond hospital care. We developed such a trust and beautiful relationship which left me feeling so confident being in her care. Altogether, we had a phenomenal experience because of her! Our hope is to have Angie deliver any more babies we may be blessed with🤍

As a first time father, Angie brought a spirit of peace over me the moment I met her. She has been incredibly calming, encouraging, and inspiring throughout the pregnancy and postpartum. Angie is our Angel. She has absolutely changed my growing family’s life and she will never know how much she means to us. We look forward to working with her again many more times in the future.

Angie birthed my 6th grandbaby. As a former labor nurse, I am particular about ob care, especially for my daughter. Angie is very knowledgeable, calm, and quick to act if needed. We had an amazing experience with her! She is so caring and gentle. She was very attentive at each of her home visits before and after the birth. She made sure to include my son in law and my granddaughters in the appointments and birth experience! Definitely recommend! Thanks Angie!

My daughter in law had issues with her dr and Mrs. Heffner came at the last minute to take care of her. She has helped so much. Her hemoglobin is dangerously low. Angie recommended many supplements for us to get it up. She is on a prescription but it’s not helping. The baby is due on the 23rd. I’m so grateful for her willingness to offer her support in our time of need at the last minute.

Most amazing birth ever. Angie is a really wonderful, caring person. She was meant to do this. She has a great energy and is always positive. I wanted a peaceful, calm birth and that’s exactly what I got. I can’t say enough wonderful things about Angie. She’s definitely one of the best midwives in all of DFW.

I definitely recommend to hire Angie for midwifery care. She doesn't see you as just another patient. She's very much present at every appointment. She gives undivided attention and responds fairly quickly when you text her. She is very patient, caring, and knowledgeable. My kids were sad to see her go on our last appointment.
