Founded in 1999 by April Bullock CPM, RN, FNP. Birthwise originated as a solo home birth practice and quickly grew into Austin’s premiere birth center nestled in the heart of downtown Austin. Birthwise partnered with Light Family Acupuncture to develop the East-West Family Health Center which houses the birth center, acupuncture clinic, pelvic floor physical therapy, therapists, & more. With a team of experienced midwives, we’re dedicated to continual growth of clinical knowledge in midwifery practice. Apprentice midwives infuse the practice with fresh energy and commitment to current research, & a commitment to lifelong learning. Our apprentices are trained birth assistants & are honored to assist with your birth.
