Midwife in Arlington, TX

Midwife Cait serves the Dallas-Ft. Worth area

Midwifery. For you.

Guarded birth. Honored individuality. Professional humility. You deserve to meet your child in the most personalized way possible. On that, Midwife Cait delivers.

Safety

When birth is normal, there’s no need to interfere. Beyond medical intervention, safety means birth guardianship, honoring the journey and providing a safe place for individualized care.

Connection

More than just availability, Midwife Cait builds relationship and trust. Her clients’ body wisdom informs the birth process. The intimate client-midwife dynamic kindles deep connectedness and genuinely client-led care.

Kindness

Simple things matter. Human kindness is the simplest form of respect. When a woman is at her most vulnerable, shame, bullying and coercion have no place. Midwife Cait does not judge. She serves. Kindly.

Birth. You were born for this. Birth is the single greatest gift that one human can give to another, and you were purpose-built for exactly that. It is a sacred rite of passage, and I am honored to bear witness to it.

Midwife Cait is based in Dallas and Fort Worth, TX, but serves clients in Arlington, Plano, Irving, Garland, Grand Prairie, McKinney, Frisco, Mesquite, Carrollton, Denton, Richardson and Lewisville. Her practice is primarily based out of the Birth and Wellness Center of Arlington, but she regularly assists clients at home births as well. She holds a Certified Professional Midwife license nationally and a Licensed Midwife designation in the (fertile) state of Texas.

About Midwife Cait

Cait Bourne

CERTIFIED PROFESSIONAL MIDWIFE, LICENSED MIDWIFE

“Midwife” means “with women.” Every pregnancy deserves a skilled companion who has traveled the road of birth. After birthing five children in her bathtub at home and training with 10 exceptional midwives, Cait provides clients with compassionate, empathic care—because she has been there.

What to Expect from Your Midwife

The Midwifery Model of Care

Midwifery is an ancient practice and has been both crucial and commonplace in many cultures around the world. It is a fascinating study to learn more about the field of midwifery.

Attention to Signals from Your Body

Midwife Cait will encourage you to take time each day to be still and listen to what your body is telling you. This feedback is critical for understanding the many changes happening during pregnancy, providing the best possible care and responding to possible complications that may arise.

Childbirth Education

Midwife Cait strongly encourages clients to enroll in a childbirth education class. Her birth center in Arlington hosts one regularly, but there are also other options in the DFW metroplex as well.

During prenatal appointments, she will teach and prepare you for childbirth, but an intensive childbirth class brings more depth to what the birthing person and partner can expect to experience.

The more empowered you are for the natural process of birth, the less intimidating it will be.

Inclusive LGBTQIA+ Midwifery Care

Sexual orientation should have no bearing on the availability of a safe, compassionate birth experience. Midwife Cait supports birth regardless of where on the sexual identity spectrum parents identify.

Reasonable Fees and Payment Structure

Midwifery is truly a labor of love. It is a demanding profession with long hours and many sleepless nights. In order to provide exemplary care to you, her client, as well as guard against burn-out, Midwife Cait only accepts five clients per month. She asks that clients commit to their payment schedules faithfully, as she is committed to giving you the highest quality care possible.

Arlington Birth Center

Midwife Cait offices out of the Birth & Wellness Center birth center in Arlington, TX. It has been designed in great detail with you in mind. The birth center was intentionally designed to create a sacred space of peace—with every piece of art, color choice and inspirational quote. Her goal is your comfort, security and sense of belonging.

Payment Options

Healthshare, Not Insurance

Unfortunately, Midwife Cait is not in network with any health insurance companies or Medicaid. However, she gladly works with healthshare ministries, such as Christian Healthcare Ministries Medi-Share, Samaritan Ministries, Liberty HealthShare, United Refuah HealthShare, MCS Medical Cost Sharing, Altrua HealthShare, Freedom HealthShare and Trinity HealthShare.

Cash or Crypto, With Discounts

Payment with cash or cryptocurrency is not only accepted, but Midwife Cait offers a cash discount, too! She can readily accept many forms of cash payments—physical dollars or transfers from Venmo, Zelle or Paypal. She can run credit and debit cards, too. She also accepts cryptocurrency payments in Bitcoin or Ethereum. All of these options qualify clients for a reduction in midwifery fees.
