This week we officially brought on a second midwife to help out! Rowan TwoSisters, a Certified Professional Midwife (CPM), is joining our team part time. She has been a CPM since January 2019 and has extensive birth center and home birth experience. Prior to earning midwifery boards, Rowan worked as a doula and midwife assistant. All-in-all she has more than 25 years of experience with all things birth.
Rowan, a self described Hottie Hooper Healer, is also a licensed massage therapist with special certification in Arvigo Maya Abdominal Massage. She is a Spinning Babies Aware Practitioner and also does some pretty awesome pelvic floor scar remediation. As a trauma informed provider she is great all around at helping you feel more at home in your body.
Rowan co-hosts a free weekly postpartum support group/podcast, Afterbirth, on Tuesdays at 11 am. She is a founder of Preggers Can Be Choosers, which focuses on mind and body wellness throughout all reproductive phases.
Wise enough to know she doesn't want a full time gig as a midwife, Rowan will be joining us every other Wednesday afternoon for prenatal and postpartum care. Over the next couple months she will be attending most for orientation (it sucks being a midwife when you don't know where all the things are) and then will be on an intermittent call schedule beginning in June. We are super excited to have Rowan join the Heart of Houston team and we can't wait for you to meet her too.
