Welcome to the Motherhood Center

Gabi_5473-2The Motherhood Center is nestled in River Oaks and combines luxury, education and support to Houston’s expectant and new moms.  For over 15 years my passion has been to provide exemplary pregnancy and parenting classes, private services, and specialized retail items for expecting and new moms.  We are known as the “Mommy Country Club” because our services and atmosphere are infused with a supportive, nurturing and empowering outlet for Houston’s pregnant and new moms.  You feel the positive energy when you walk in our 7,000 square foot center and participate in a Yoga class, relax with a massage, or meet with a newborn expert in your home.  Our mission has not changed since we opened our doors in 2000, in fact we continue to offer only the best classes and services from pregnancy to parenting.

Whether you are new to Houston or a long time resident I encourage you to stop by the center – enjoy some of our infamous tea and join our “Mommy Country Club”.  Our team is available for daily tours and to answer any questions you may have.  We look forward to seeing you soon!

I have already recommended the Motherhood Center’s Baby Doulas to several friends. 
I believe the service made a tremendous difference in how my son and I learned about each other.

I recommend Motherhood Center’s Lactation Consultant to all my new mom friends. I work at Texas Children’s, and I was able to breastfeed/pump for 8 months due to an incredible home visit with Renee and all of the guidance she provided!
