Pregnancy + Birth

Pregnancy and the birth of a new baby are some of the sweetest – and sometimes most challenging – seasons of a women’s life. The category of Pregnancy + Birth features articles to help you every step of the way — trimester tips, baby shower inspo, etc. — as well as how to find an OBGYN, where to connect with local support groups, helpful books to read, the best birth options in Fort Worth, and more! 

Fort Worth Moms publishes original, personal stories and advice from local moms, as well as relevant and fun information for those of us in the trenches of parenthood. 

Every article published via Fort Worth Moms — whether someone from our in-house team, a guest writer, or a sponsored writer — uses their words to reflect their own opinions, experiences, and beliefs. No singular post or collection of posts represents the opinions, beliefs, or agenda of Fort Worth Moms.

Before I had my eldest, I heard all the birthing horror stories: hemorrhoids, pooping on yourself, long labors ending in emergency c-sections, etc. AHHHHH!! I was totally freaked out. But there were tons of little things that no one told...
Hiring a doula to be a part of your birth journey is a big decision. The right doula can add education, comfort, and direction to your labor and delivery. She can help you come up with a game plan before...
Regrettably, there are modern-day doctors that still do not believe Black mothers when they complain of pain. Many times they are dismissed, which ends in the scathing stats that state that I have a 28 percent chance of leaving the hospital with the funeral home rather than my family.
