Afua was really great throughout the whole process. We were young and were a bit nervous about alternative methods for birthing a child, but I can honestly say now that we made the right decision.
I really love how easy it is to get in touch with Afua- she personally answers all phone calls and texts, so there's no going through a front desk or multiple midwives to talk to. It's easy, efficient, and really made the prenatal (and birth!) experience comfortable.
My husband and I opted for a home birth, and the whole process went so smoothly that I'm still in awe that my daughter is here, healthy, and happy, and it's all thanks to Afua.
We had a healthy baby, naturally. I cannot stress enough how much I contribute that to having an experienced midwife that I trusted, who actually listened and cared about us and our baby. I could not have wished for a more wonderful birth process.
If you want your experience to be your own, Afua is the woman you want to see. She cares about you, your well-being, mind, body, and soul. Our visits weren't just pre-natal, they were therapy. She didn't just measure and weigh me, she asked me about my life, fears, concerns, and all the things unrelated to my pregnancy that may have affected my birth.
I came across The Birthing Place after doing some research online trying to find a mommy and me class to go to with my baby girl.
We had to go trial and error with other baby classes, but After going to The Birthing Place one time, I was instantly hooked. Everyone is so nice and helpful and Afua is so amazing to be around. She is so knowledgeable and makes you want to ask questions for all that is motherhood and babies. Taking to her and the other moms feels so natural and comfortable. I can see why people love to be around her and go back to her when having their second child and so forth. She feels like family!
I love the birthing place! Afua is awesome! Seriously this place is a one stop shop from prenatal to postnatal. I have been able to find everyone from a midwife all the to a nanny. I recommend this place to any woman trying or already expecting a baby.
Afua helped deliver our last 2 babies and it was a blessing to have her. Our water births were much easier and less stressful with her comforting presence and immense experience. Not only is she an extremely knowledgeable midwife but she has the compassion, intuition and care to make each client feel at ease. My wife and I happily refer people to Afua because we know they will get the best possible care. We love you Afua!
The people here are phenomenal. They create a safe space for moms-to-be and new moms. The group prenatal is a fantastic way to share experiences and information. The events they hold are always entertaining, informative and comforting. I have been attending for the last couple of months as a new mother and cannot believe the amount of valuable support I've received. They have created a really nice community environment where you can learn and make connections. Birthing centers and their midwives are a wonderful choice if you are experiencing a low risk pregnancy and The Birthing Place is a great choice for support before, during and after birth.
Not only is Afua a highly skilled and experienced midwife, she has an infectious personality and genuine warmth about her. I love her center The Birthing Place not only because they also offer various events and services to the community for women and families to educate themselves, feel supported, and connect with each other from preconception, birth, postpartum and beyond. I highly recommend Afua and The Birthing Place!
If you are looking for a non invasive, holistic, and peaceful setting for the birth of your beautiful baby you need not look any further. Afua is a wonderful midwife who is patient, available, kind, and informative. She has 20+ years of experience as a midwife and is completely competent in delivering not only head down babies but breech and Twins as well. I hope your birthing journey leads you to The Birthing Place, it will be a choice you will not regret.
Afua was our midwife and I could not be more pleased. We had an instant connection with her and everything fell into place. For our family, there was no other. Afua cares for the whole family's well-being. I felt like I was getting the best free counseling we had, and needed! You have to go with who you trust. We felt totally confident in her abilities. Thank you, Afua, for being a very special part of our lives.
I had a wonderful birth using the Birthing Place. I started services about 3 months into my pregnancy. I was able to attend prenatal groups to connect with other expectant / new moms and learned a ton. I connected with Afua from day one and knew all along that I was making the best decision for me and my family. She answered all our questions and we never felt rushed or anything but encouraged. I chose to give birth at home and it was perfect. I felt in total control of my process and gently guided by Afua. She supported, nurtured and reassured us every step of the way. I'll definitely use her for all my future births!
Honestly, if you are looking to go to a midwife, you would be hard-pressed to find one that will provide you with a better experience than Afua. She has over 30+ years of experience and is more than willing to answer any and all questions that you may have. She will make you feel so comfortable throughout the entire process. Kind, caring, knowledgeable, patient, loving, not pushy, understanding... Honestly, I can't think of a single negative thing to say about Afua. She is absolutely amazing and I don't think that my wife and I could be happier with our experience thus far. If you are pregnant, then please, please, PLEASE do yourself a favor and go see Afua. NOW!!!!!
I recently went to First Sunday at The Birthing Place and had a great experience. I am not pregnant but wanted to gain more insight about midwifery and what my options are for when I have children. Afua is so knowledgeable and answered all of my questions and let me tell you I had a lot! The other women also talked about their experiences and I left so excited and assured that I want a midwife and a doula when I'm ready to have children! Thanks again everyone and thank you Afua for doing First Sundays!
Afua is passionate about birth and she is passionate about empowering women to have the birth they want. And it shows in everything she does. I feel so incredibly privileged and lucky that she is my midwife and that she will be there to guide me as my family grows. We are so lucky that during this process our family is growing not by just one (our little baby), but that we get to add Afua as well. I would recommend her wholeheartedly and without reservation if you want a personal experience with a midwife that will love, respect, and care for you in a way that is unparalleled.
I love Afua! She is one of the most experienced midwives in Houston, with 30 years of practice. She instantly made me feel comfortable when I met her for the first time. She is very straight up and honest - no messing around, which for me is a good thing.
The Birthing Place is a gem. Afua is warm, loving, and quickly became like family to us. She will nuture you throughout your pregnancy, but is not shy about telling you things you may not want to hear, if you need to hear them! Afua also excels in creating community with her group prenatals, so you can connect with other mamas-to-be. She has a joy and commitment to work that is always evident, and she will make you laugh while reminding you of your strength. We are blessed to have shared the birth of our daughter with her.
She is warm, open, attentive, loving, generous, kind, adorable, lovely, and amazing. We have regular prenatal appointments in Afua's conveniently-located, comfortable and cozy birthing center, where Afua always makes sure we feel empowered in the process. We have opted not to get any Doppler or sonogram exams, and Afua has supported us on our journey the entire way, lovingly and without reserve. It is evident that she is a true master practicing authentic midwifery.
