Welcome to Hill Country Birth!

Hill Country Birth (formerly Lovely Hearts Birth) was created to serve the Hill Country community and encompasses my life-long passion for community service and a dedication to continued learning. Offering childbirth education and doula services to pregnant women and yoga classes to people of all ages and abilities, including Integral Yoga®, prenatal yoga, and yoga for chronic pain and arthritis, Hill Country Birth strives to connect people from all walks of life in the Hill Country of Central Texas.

Pregnancy

Every birthing mother deserves the best care and support during and after pregnancy. We are here to help provide that support! Providing doula services, childbirth education for pregnant women and their partners, and prenatal yoga, we are here for the women of Hill Country.

This journey into the birth community started for me even before I had children, when I started to explore prenatal options as a yoga teacher in New York City. I finished my pregnancy-specific training in 2009, and have been working with pregnant women ever since. My doula work came next and seemed a natural progression in supporting pregnant women. Since moving to rural Central Texas, I realized there was a need for childbirth education locally that was evidence-based, holistic, and one that valued a woman’s innate ability to birth a child.

Yoga

We offer yoga classes for various populations throughout Hill Country, including regularly scheduled group classes at the Springs Family YMCA in Dripping Springs. We also offer private classes for one or more students in the comfort of your own home and group classes for corporate events and team-building gatherings.

WELCOME.

Whether you are looking to expand your yoga and meditation practice, a doula for your birth or want to learn more about labor and delivery (and what happens after!) so you can have an informed, confident, and conscious birth, Hill Country Birth is here for you.

Warmly,
