We chose to use Heritage Births for the birth of our second child because I wanted to try to experience a water birth. Our prenatal experience with Alex was above and beyond anything I expected or had experienced with our first child. Alex took time to answer any questions we had and give us more of the "why" behind things.
In the last few days leading up to our due date, Alex was so great about explaining the "what if's" and helped keep us calm and less anxious. Our due date came and went. No baby. Alex told us not to worry and the baby would come when they were ready.
The morning of November 2nd (10 days after our due date) contractions started. We had an appointment that morning and we left saying we would most likely see each other later that night. After an exciting fast paced evening, we arrived at the birth center and Alex met us in the parking lot. We walked into the birth center and Alex was calm and collected and instructed us on exactly what we needed to do to make sure our rainbow baby arrived safely. Our son, Thompsy River Young was born just 12 minutes after we arrived at the birth center! We weren't able to experience a water birth, but I wouldn't change a thing about our experience with Alex and Heritage Births.
The peacefulness and relaxed atmosphere inside birth center is amazing and I would highly recommend Alex and Heritage Births to anyone that is thinking about a natural birth.

Heritage Births was such an amazing gift throughout my pregnancy and birth experience. Alex is knowledgeable, loving, supportive, professional, and an absolute expert in taking care of moms and babies. My birth at the birth center was the most beautiful, empowering experience. I can’t wait to be able to do it all over again!

“I thank God each and every day for bringing Alex into our lives. Every time I look at our little boy I'm reminded of the wonderful gift he is and the wonderful birth I had with him because of her. Our son, Brant, was born in the caul after about 45 min of active labor with Alex talking me through every step... She was encouraging me and my husband too through the pushing and giving me the confidence that everything would be ok. I never had one ounce of fear or anxiety because Alex made me feel nothing but excitement for my son that was about to be here. Even writing this I am in tears because of the amazing person that Alex is and I am so completely grateful that God brought her into my life. To this day we remain friends and I know with my next baby she will without a doubt be my midwife. There is no one I trust more with my life and my child's life than Alex. I am so humbled by God's plan. Jeremiah 23:11 "for I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future"

“I don't know what we would have done without Alex! Her quality of care and attention to detail all through my pregnancy was amazing. When my birth plan didn't go how we originally wanted she was right by my side the whole time. Without her pushing me and encouraging me through my labor I wouldn't have made it. She even made sure to stay sensitive to my husband’s needs and guided him as well. She was the glue we needed to keep it together so we could have our son the most natural way possible. Thank you for everything Alex! I don't know what we would have done with out you! I can't recommend Heritage Births or Alex enough. She's simply the best!”

“Alex was a wonderful midwife, friend, cheerleader, confidant, and encourager for our home birth. She was a wealth of calm and confident knowledge. She did everything in her power to give me the birth experience I wanted, all the while keeping a close eye on my health and safety. She was amazingly quick thinking and calm when the situation called for it. I felt like she was on my side and in it (labor and delivery) with me.”

“I am a first time mom and was very sure of the experience and type of care I was looking for. As soon as I spoke with Alex, I was sure and excited that she would be supporting me on this journey. Alex was very supportive of all my decisions and took amazing care of me and baby throughout the entire process. I had a very life changing experience at Heritage Births and would recommend Alex and her team to any woman that wanted to experience amazing care and a beautiful birth!”
- Hunter Wells
“I had an amazing experience with Alex! She has a beautiful birth center and I was thrilled to be able to have our baby there. I love the prenatal care. Alex was always very thorough and educational. She never rushed through my appointments and always took time to answer my questions. I felt like my baby and I were important and well cared for. I ended up having a water birth like I wanted. Even though things didn’t quite go as planned afterwards, I knew I could trust Alex and her staff to make the right decisions. Lord willing I hope to have all our babies with Alex at Heritage Birth Center.”

“Alex is incredible! I felt so supported and empowered throughout my entire pregnancy and labor and delivery. I would highly recommend Alex to anyone interested in natural childbirth. She is very knowledgeable, compassionate and kind. There is no one I would have rather had by my side as I went into labor!”
- Marie Stephenson
“As a nurse who works with new moms and newborns I didn't know home births were possible in Lubbock Texas. Therefore, with my first child I had a hospital birth. I went into my first birth wanting to do things naturally but found that the hospital setting is not very conducive to a natural birth. I was so thankful to have found Alex for my second pregnancy. She gave me an experience that I will not forget. I was able to have a birth that I wanted and had a provider that supported all of my choices. Having a home birth allowed me to have a more personal experience that I didn’t have with my first birth in the hospital. Alex is very compassionate and truly cares for her clients. She takes the time to get to know you and your family and was always available when I called for any questions or concerns I had throughout my pregnancy and postpartum. I am so truly blessed to have the experience of a natural birth; It is truly empowering to know the strength it takes to labor naturally. Alex was truly a blessing and I would recommend Alex 100% if you are wanting to have a natural birth.”
