  • Anna Ochoa, Midwife, McAllen:   "I'm a student midife under Anna (who's bilingual), and am loving learning from her. She treats her clients and their families with care, listens to their concerns, and takes time to talk everything through with them. Anna's birth center is in McAllen, but she's currently looking at offering home birth, too. Anna offers VBACs and water-birth as an option, and her services are  very reasonably priced. " Jen
  • Holy Family Birth Center, Weslaco:   "Holy family birthing center has a very knowledgeable staff and was a lovely place to deliver by water birth in a peaceful and loving environment."

  • Namitha Nagaraj, MD OBGYN, McAllen:   "[Dr Nagaraj] really made my pregnancy something memorable and exciting; she was always there for me and very calming. The nurses in the labor and delivery were always so sweet to me, and nurse who did my epidural was actually a student but she was so gentle and demonstrated her know-how very well." Gabi
  • New Life OB/GYN Associates (includes midwives in the practice), Edinburg:   "Dr. Lee and his team did an amazing job at making me feel welcomed and informed about pregnancy/birth and the valley.

He and the team at Edinburg Women's Corner were amazing and kept my baby skin to skin immediately after she was born and through recovery. It was such a wonderful experience!" Norma
