The Weekly Newsletter for Heart of Houston Birth and Wellness Families

Season of Gratitude

Happy Monday dear ones. Can you believe we are in the final stretch of 2021? Pretty sure this year has been the longest shortest year on record. We ended last year with the birth of our very first Heart of Houston baby, Hattie, and just last night Rowan and Mary ushered in another precious life into the world. We've been so fortunate to meet 30 babies so far this year and we still a month and some change to go. The birth center has gone from a quiet space with the occasional bit of excitement to a bustling hub of birth, community and celebrations. Thank you to each and everyone of you who've played a role in this incredible year. We are so very proud of this beautiful community and we cannot wait to see what 2022 brings. We hope that you can enjoy this beautiful weather and time with family and friends. Mary, Bethany, Rowan and I would like to wish you a Happy Thanksgiving. Bring on the pie!
