About Us

Why Moontower?

Moontowers are uniquely Austin, originally created to be sources of light for dark streets in forgotten neighborhoods. Moontowers were an innovation in the 1890s, putting Austin on the map! They were innovative! They can still be found in Austin today, the only surviving moonlight towers in the world. We as midwives in Austin really relate to the Moontowers…we stand with you, we hold space for you. We are so excited for this new practice and how it will innovate healthcare in Austin.

Newcomers to Austin are often puzzled by the lack of midwifery options in hospitals. We believe there is a gap in maternity care for the people of Austin and our goal is to help close this gap. Everyone deserves a midwife! We believe everyone is entitled to give birth in a place where they feel safe and heard. Some individuals feel safe birthing at home. Others feel safe in the hospital, but struggle with the culture of hospital birth. We have been fortunate to work with the Women’s Center at St. David’s Medical Center in North Austin to create a one-of-a-kind, low intervention unit complete with tubs, large beds, and the environment that supports those seeking an unmedicated birth. We are just as passionate in supporting those who want an epidural birth and those who develop higher risk conditions in pregnancy as those who do not. The partnership with OB Hospital Group has helped us make all of this possible with in-house physician back up from doctors who work with midwives every day and understand the importance of collaborative care. We look forward to serving the people of central Texas and all those who need this type of care.

We had a dream and Moontower Midwifery & Wellness was born. When the lights come on, see you there.
