3 Sisters Midwifery & Birth Center



Our Story

It all started with a whisper.....

"you don't know it yet, but you were made to be a midwife".......

Those words were spoken over 13 years ago,

when the very word "midwife" had no real meaning to Joycelyn in her life's journey.

But fast forward to today, "midwife" means everything......to each one of us.

It is life, respect and trust.

It is choosing to live a life surrendered to God and with love and support for all areas of women's health.

Anita Hernandez


Anita is a wife, and mother of 4 handsome boys and one sweet adopted daughter. She fell in love with birth 17+ years ago. Before even knowing that being a doula was a profession, she was naturally supporting friends, loved ones, and even a few friends of friends in the role of a doula. She became the go-to gal when women were pregnant back in her hometown. It was later, after relocating to Killeen, she realized that she could formally train. She received her Birth Doula and Lactation Counselor training through Childbirth International, and gained even more knowledge to assist mothers. She has served mothers that have birthed 18 babies (not a typo); to first-time moms. Anita studied to become a midwife through Ancient Arts Midwifery Institute and is a bilingual Certified Professional Midwife. She has also earned her Midwifery Bridge Certificate. Anita is the owner and clinic director of Dulce Birthing Services in Killeen and the founder & president of Grace for Mothers (a local non-profit providing support, resources, and tools for mothers with children of all ages).
