Sweet Embrace Midwifery Care
Welcome to Sweet Embrace Midwifery Care! Sabrina Elliott, licensed midwife and certified professional midwife, offers homebirth to women in Abilene, San Angelo, Sweetwater and the surrounding areas of the Big Country and Concho Valley. She wants you to find peace in your choice to have a home birth, surrounded by loving and skilled hands that provide a “sweet embrace.” Her goal is to provide a peaceful environment with safe “standard of care” practices, including the use of supplements, herbs, homeopathies and medicine. It is her job as your midwife to know what is “normal” and what is needed so that you can continue on the path for a healthy pregnancy and a safe birth.
Your partner and your family are welcome at each appointment and at your birth! Sabrina’s patients enjoy relaxed prenatal visits with time enough for questions, in-house lab work, and referrals for ultrasounds. During labor she will give encouragement to eat and drink, provide hydrotherapy and water birth options with her own pool. You’ll have the ability to sleep in your own bed postpartum and most of all you’ll be an active participant in making choices regarding your care. Sabrina is a strong believer in you and your birth story being cherished during this time and does not want you to have to fight for or apologize for any of the choices you decide to make on this very special day.
Currently, she has an office in Abilene and one in San Angelo. She accepts patients who are choosing to switch providers later in pregnancy as well as those newly pregnant. While she does not file with insurance companies, she will provide a super-bill in order for each family to work on their own reimbursement or for it to count towards their deductible amount. There are payment plans and credit options in order to pay long-term for your birth should you need those. Don’t hesitate to call and ask how Sabrina can make homebirth a reality for you!
“Sabrina Elliott, she is one amazing person! She delivered my son and the entire time I felt comforted to know that I was in good hands. She is caring, compassionate, and knowledgeable in her line of work. I’ve had a baby in the hospital and with other midwives. I will choose her every time.”
“Sabrina and her team are absolutely amazing. I moved to Abilene when I was halfway through my pregnancy. I was so nervous about finding a local midwife who I would click with and would support my dream home birth. I met with Sabrina and felt instantly content. Every check up was so much more personal than a check up with an OB/GYN. They felt like I was catching up with a friend. My birth was a dream come true. My baby girl came, my husband got to catch her, the birth team cleaned up my bed and got me all comfortable, the birth assistants spoon fed me breakfast, started the laundry , took out the trash, and left my husband and I to dote on our new family member. A little while later, they got an herbal bath set up for baby and I. It was absolutely everything I wanted and more. I would recommend Sabrina and her team to anyone who is looking for a more natural and less stressful birth experience.”
Sabrina was the most amazing choice we made during our 2nd pregnancy. She really gave us a redemptive birth follwing the traditional OB/GYN “assisted” hospital birth of our son that really left us wanting more. During my first pregnancy, it was discovered early on that my blood pressure was elevated and I really tried to communicate my concerns to the doctor who basically just brushed them off. Despite my assertions that something was wrong and my desire for a natural birth, I ended up being induced early due to being preeclamptic and was given both pain and blood pressure medications, as well as an epidural, and then was separated from my son after birth. When I got pregnant with my daughter, I felt like I had to approach the pregnancy the same way, but after two visits with my OB/GYN, I knew something had to change and decided to contact Sabrina. She was warm and welcoming and really took the time to answer all of me and my husband’s questions, as I had come prepared with a sheet full. She answered as fully as she could and even took the time to research when she didn’t fully know the answer. Despite the complications that I had with my previous pregnancy, my most recent pregnancy was uneventful and I attribute that to Sabrina’s gentle guidance and her encouragement to make our own, researched decisions. She was more than a medical provider, she was a readily available resource for all things pregnancy and took the time to get to know my husband and I outside of being patients. The most valuable thing she did was truly listen to me and helped ease my worries…..If we are to have more children, there is no choice to be made. Sabrina will be our midwife!
