The Bumpdate

The Weekly Newsletter for Heart of Houston Birth and Wellness Families and Friends

Stay Connected to Your Community

It's hard to believe our first HOH babies are well into their second year of life and we just booked a December 2023 due date. As our practice and community continue to grow, we want you all to know how just how much you mean to us. We've been so fortunate to have cared for and gotten to know so many of you over the past few years and although some of you have managed to escape Texas for bluer... greener pastures, we want to remain connected to you and your family. Here are some great ways to participate locally and online.

  • Groups: Our online and in-person groups are open to all Heart of Houston clients and Whole Heart Collective members. RSVP to the event page to receive a link to the online meeting rooms. Expectant and postpartum members welcome.

  • WhatsApp: We have two chats for our families. One is for the birthing person and the other for the non-gestational partner. These chats are very active and typically where folks go to schedule meet ups outside of the birth center, ask questions or just share the highs and lows of parenting.

  • Events: Our hope is that you and your family are able to attend some of the various events we plan each month. Now that our first crop of babies are becoming toddlers our goal is to continue providing programming that will keep you connected to your HOH friends.

  • Circles: Don't forget we have safe spaces for LGBTQIA+ families to meet and bi-weekly playdates as well.

If you have question or need any assistance please email Jessica.

Let's Celebrate

Saturday May 27th 10am-12p at Mark McGrath park in the city of Meadows Place, southwest of Houston.

All HOH and WHC families are invited to come spend the morning celebrating our community and the start of summer. Bring a snack to share with a list of ingredients if possible. We have a few community members offer to help out and we appreciate it. Keep an eye out for an email with a link to sign up for drinks, paper products and all that good stuff. The park has bathrooms, shaded seating, a splash pad and duck pond with a fishing pier. Come make a day of it!

Please RSVP with the number of folks attending so we can plan accordingly.
