Thanks for visiting the Internet home of Grand Prairie's newest, woman-focused, healthcare facility. Special Beginnings is a full service Ob/Gyn clinic operated by nurse-midwife Betty Winford, CNM. To learn more about Betty's experience and credentials, read Betty's Bio. To learn more about nurse-midwifery, read Nurse-Midwifery 101.
In addition to checking up on newborn babies and their moms, seeing three dozen (or so) expectant moms, and doing annual Gyn checkups, we offer childbirth classes. Things are busy, but we always have time to meet you for your well-woman Gyn or Ob visit. To make an appointment or just ask a question, please give us a call. Our office hours are 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. - Monday through Friday. Our office is closed weekends and holidays. Since all after-hours calls are forwarded, please help us to be rested and fresh by saving non-urgent calls for office hours. Thank you.
Our facilities offer women the option of delivering in water. We are pleased that both birthing rooms now have tubs. To see photos of these rooms, click on the "Rose Room" and "Bear Room" links below, in the Special Beginnings' Album. The album also has photos of the living room, the kitchen and the office/exam room. Last, the album has a link for some of our moms' "Birth Stories." Thanks again for stopping by. Visit as often as you'd like.
Special Beginnings Philosophy
We believe that birth is a natural, physiological process and not an opportunity to arbitrarily demonstrate the latest in medical interventions. Pregnant women are not sick, but individuals with babies developing inside. Each woman has a unique body, story and desires for her birth. Believing strongly that an educated woman makes good choices, we listen, educate and then listen again.
Special Beginnings' Mission
To provide the women of the Grand Prairie area a woman-centered alternative to traditional medical settings for all of their obstetric and gynecologic needs.
