The Bumpdate 1/3/2022

The Weekly Newsletter for Heart of Houston Birth and Wellness Families


Happy new year, friends! Now that the holidays are behind us and we've packed up the wrapping paper and recycled the Christmas tree (just kidding, it's still in the backyard), I'm looking forward to all the great things 2022 has to bring. I'm adding new events to our calendar but I wanted to take this time to let everyone know that we are moving the majority of events online for the month of January. Omicron is spreading like wildfire and this year's flu is a beast! We'll plan on getting back together mid February when, fingers crossed, things have improved. Please continue to use your masks and wash your hands! If you are pregnant and due for your booster, now is a great time to get that done. As always, contact us with any questions or concerns regarding COVID 19 vaccines and boosters.


Google Reviews

Some days I feel incredibly old and uncool (kids will do that to you). Then other days, I think I'll never quite wrap my head around the fact that I'm an actual adult and responsible for raising small people. Technology is not my jam but I'm also Gen X so I'm not completely clueless. Like most folks, I love word of mouth referrals for everything from coffee to cars but Google reviews are where our traffic come from. 2022 is going to be a year of big growth for us and we'd love your help in spreading the word. If you received any type of care from us would you head over to google leave us a review? We appreciate y'all!!

Welcome Newbies

I'm behind on our birth announcements! Earlier this month one of our Whole Heart Collective families welcomed their twin boys at 34 weeks gestation. James and George are growing like weeds and will hopefully be going home sometime in the next month or so. James (3lbs) outweighed his brother George by 1oz. Grow, grow, grow little buddies!

The final two weeks of December we helped usher three more little ones earthside with Miss Hazel getting here just in time for her folks to qualify for that awesome child tax credit! High fives to all our December families!!!
