Patricia Gross, LM, CPM
Midwife / Owner of Kueo Birth Center
My core belief is that birth is a pivotal moment in a woman’s life, and the way a woman chooses to deliver her baby can have an impact on her emotional wellbeing.
Here at Kueo (koo-AY-oh), we work closely with women and families, guiding them through the many choices of the childbearing year, by providing risk assessments throughout pregnancy, labor and the postpartum period. We strive to keep our mothers and babies healthy, offering our clients expert evidence-based maternity care and developing relationships with medical providers should a mother or infant require medical assistance in pregnancy or birth.
Midwives take a holistic approach to pregnancy and childbirth, recognizing that a woman’s body is naturally designed to conceive, nourish and give birth. Midwives trust the natural progression, and guide women though this momentous life event. We believe every day of pregnancy will naturally prepare women and their bodies for birth.
Safety of a Birth Center
Kueo Birth Center and all midwives are licensed by the state of Texas and met the standards for certification by NARM to practice as a certified professional midwife, the CPM credential that requires knowledge and experience in out-of-hospital settings (home and birth center births.) All midwives and care providers practice emergency measures often, gaining continued education hours, and are certified in neonatal resuscitation as well as a CPR.
As a birth worker for 22 years and mother to 4 children, I understand how important birth impacts our life. I strive to educate and empower women to trust birth and the natural forces behind it.
"And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him,
who have been called according to his purpose." - Romans 8:28
