All About Babies has a new location in Argyle that owner Donnellyn Dominguez, LM, CPM, said will give expecting mothers even more amenities from which to choose.
Their new location at 305 FM 1830 in Argyle opened up in early September, and Dominguez said she is excited about the direction her business is taking.
“Our heart is to give moms the option of a natural birth in a beautiful setting,” Dominguez said.
“And it is more like a bed and breakfast than anything else. We specialize in water births, so we’ve got three different birth tubs for the moms.”
There are also three different birth suites with their own private bathroom and birth tub, and Dominguez said the new location is much larger.
“We found this big building and remodeled it and moved in the first of September,” Dominquez said.
The center rapidly outgrew their previous location in a house along the railroad tracks on W. Front Street in Argyle and moved to a peaceful, rural setting on 3.5 acres.
“So we’re brand new. We have much more room, so we don’t have to worry about having two births at one time, because we have the room to have three births at one time.
“We have the opportunity to work with a lot more midwives, because we’ve also got three prenatal rooms in the front of the building, so three midwives can see clients at the same time. We’ve also got a huge room that accommodates teaching and classes.”
Dominguez said that education is a big part of what she and the other midwives and staff at All About Babies try to really stress.
“We spend a lot of time and energy teaching,” Dominguez said. “We have from two to six classes a month about, not just natural birth, but out of hospital births, as well as organic cooking, eating, composting, gardening, canning and non-toxic living.
“It’s really just anything to educate our clients on the important stuff— taking good care of themselves and their babies. We participate in 5K runs, and we make an effort to help people live a healthier lifestyle.”
All About Babies will celebrate their grand opening on Saturday, Oct. 20, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at 305 FM 1830. The public is invited to attend the festivities and take a tour.
