What Is A Newborn Care Specialist?

An Update On Covid-19

We are open Mon-Sun 10-3 for clients to come in and get their nursing and pumping supplies, rent a pump or scale, and weigh their baby. We are happy to offer phone and video consultations.
For immediate doula support please call Renee and Amanda at (713)907-4650.

Motherhood Center has served our community for 20 years and we will continue to support families during this time. We want all of our families to know that our Baby Doulas/NBCS/Babysitters instill high standards of hygiene in order to protect the families we work with. We are making sure that no Baby Doulas/NBCS/Babysitters have traveled recently are all practicing social distancing, and that they are all abiding by MHC protocol to contact us should they start to feel any symptoms of allergies or sickness. Our clients’ health and well-being will continue to be the number one priority at Motherhood Center, and our Baby Doulas/NBCS/Babysitters services will continue in order to provide parents with high-quality care, day or night, for a continuous or as-needed basis.

What Our Clients Are Saying

The Motherhood Center has been a wonderful resource for me through my first pregnancy. I’ve utilized everything from their Yoga classes (Ester and Loretta are wonderful), educational classes and massage services (Crystal gave me one of the best massages of ever had), and everything was great.

My sister was dealing with sleep deprivation and baby blues. I called motherhood for help, baby doula Martha H worked for us and she is AMAZING, calm and loving to babies. She taught my sister how to pump effectively (a game changer) and sleep couched my little niece to sleep 6-7 hr stretchers in less than 2 months! Very knowledgeable, nurturing, sweet personality Martha has a kind soul, this is more than a job for her. She exceeds all our expectations and a life saver for my sister sanity.
