Working in clinical practice at a children's hospital, I realized there was a need to serve home-birth and birth-center babies in a way that aligns with their family's approach to medical care. I felt the need to offer this important service in the home and in locations that are birth-friendly, holistically-minded and breastfeeding-supportive, where baby never leaves the arms of parents. My philosophy and support for natural birth aligned with my belief that every little ear deserves to hear, no matter the birth location, and Little Ears was born in 2013. Since its launch, I have seen over 800 babies and formed many treasured friendships with families, birth workers, and other wellness professionals in Dallas-Fort Worth.
Can I feed my baby during testing?
Yes. Whether for comfort or a meal, feeding is encouraged.
Do you take insurance?
No. Fees are paid at the time of service (cash, check, card, HSA), but are less expensive and more convenient than you will find in a clinical office or pediatric hospital. You will be provided a receipt to file a claim if you choose.
Can my other kids come?
Siblings are welcome to attend, but must be quiet. Background noise heavily influences the testing. In addition, one caregiver will need to hold the baby in most cases, so you might want to bring an extra pair of hands to help if needed.
