As Killeen’s longest standing agency we are proud to have a highly hands on trained, certified and experienced staff.
Dulce Birthing Center & Services was founded to support women during birth and to meet the growing need for pregnancy & postpartum support in our community. It is now widely recognized that choosing to add a support person or midwife to one’s birth team can yield many positive benefits. A woman’s memories of her birth experiences last a lifetime and can have powerful effects on her self-esteem and confidence. We are committed to helping women and couples feel empowered and supported as they experience birth.
It is our goal to help mothers learn to trust in their beautiful, strong bodies and to trust in birth. The moment that a baby is born is joyous, and wondrous, and it is our wish for mothers and their partners to experience the birth of their babies as fully as possible.
We believe in supporting families with non-judgmental support, care, and compassion. The very essence of our work is a heart of service to others. Our team of amazing support specialists and midwife serve families here in Bell County, Texas and surrounding areas.
Midwifery care is provided by our very own Anita Hernandez, CPM, LM. Her 17 years of experience in birth work have molded her into a passionate provider who stands alongside women in one of their most amazing times.
You matter! Your baby matters!

These ladies are WONDERFUL! They really made my birthing experience a peaceful one AND, they were there for me from time of hire all the way up until the present. Anything I needed, they were there to help. Can’t express ENOUGH how much I am pleased with their services. I’m telling you gals, these ladies really know their trade!
Kimberly and Emerald were amazing. I don't think I wouldve went through with my dreams of a VBAC if it werent for them. they are fairly priced for the services they provided. next time I'll skip buying the crib and use it for more doula support. 100% recommend dulce.
Emerald was an amazing sister for my doula and I cannot thank her enough for providing truly amazing support. There is something so special about her!
The doulas here are so amazing. I had one of these awesome ladies attend my home birth and she knew exactly what to do and helped me stay in a positive mindset. Another awesome ladies came out today for a postpartum appointment. She was so knowledgeable and helpful. It was nice to have a woman to just sit and chat through fears with. She also helped with my wild kiddos so I could rest and nurse the baby. Thank you guys so much. You are so awesome!
Best experience of my life! I would do it 1000 times over with Anita. She was so kind and supportive throughout the entire process! From late night questions to general baby info! Before AND after Delivery!! I Couldn’t have imagined having things go as well as they went for us!
I got the chance to work with Samantha as my postpartum doula. She was and is fantastic. I highly recommend her and everyone at Dulce. They are kind, loving, and supportive. I had a scheduled c-section and there was no judgement for anyone.
I am SO grateful to have had the opportunity to work with Dulce. When I had come across a post about Dulce, my husband was set to deploy and would not be here for the birth. I ended up winning Dulce’s drawing for care during labor & delivery which was such a blessing. I was assisted, mentored, and encouraged by Triston, who was PHENOMENAL. She had went above and beyond to make sure I was knowledgeable going into the hospital, comfortable, and encouraged me through the whole process. I do not believe my experience would have come close to that had it not been for Triston and Dulce’s services. If we are expecting again in this area, I will definitely be contacting them again! Thank you so much!
I just delivered my third baby three days ago. I was aiming for an unmedicated birth after having gotten epidurals for the other two. Anita was an amazing resource to have and she was such a blessing to have at my birth. She helped so much with coping techniques and encouragement. I had wanted my husband to be more involved in the birth process but he never knew how or what to do but with her knowledge and coaching, he was able to be support me better than I could have imagined through the entire process! If you are looking for a doula I highly recommend Anita. Thank you for helping me get my natural birth that I wanted, I don’t think I could have done it without you!!
From a father’s/husband’s perspective I would say I was simply astounded by the level of professionalism, expertise and sweet demeanor of Anita. From the very beginning it was evident that she loves what she does, and is very passionate. She is well informed and in tune with what a mother (and father) wants and helps in every way possible for the parents to stay the course. She was extremely supportive throughout the pregnancy, answered the phone day and night with our questions, and when the time came she arrived quickly. Even though I had studied, it often happened during labor that my mind drew a blank – and Anita knew what to do, reminding and guiding me through. The labor and birth were very quick compared to our other two children (4.5 hours to 50+ hours for both) and I was able to catch my newborn child, still in the amniotic sac. That is without a doubt the coolest moment of my life. I don’t know what I would have done without Anita’s guidance, expertise and calm demeanor. All I know is this – after having her assisting us throughout the entirety of the pregnancy to birth (and beyond! She continually checked on us to see how everything was going which is amazing!) it led me as a father to want more children, doing it the way God intended, and especially with Anita at our side. We look forward to having our next child with you at our side Anita! Thank you for everything you’ve done – you made this husband and father a believer.
Anita is incredibly knowledgeable and passionate about what she does. She was so compassionate, encouraging and caring during my labor and delivery (with both me and my husband). I had a c-section with my first son (in 2013) and was determined to have a vbac with my second. She was behind me 100% and with her help and guidance, I did it! I am so glad that I had Anita by my side. The labor and delivery nurses were asking her questions about the different techniques she uses and they wanted her to teach them. I think that is a awesome testimony to her skill and profession!
Anita is extremely caring and loving. When i first met her i felt 100% comfortable sharing my birth views and asking her questions. She even offered books, websites and even added me to facebook groups. We talked ahead of time about about pain management and what I was or was not comfortable with and when the time came she new exactly what i needed to get through labor and delivery. She even guided my husband and worked with him to help keep me comfortable and calm. My labor was fast, loud and intense but she maintained a calm and peaceful presence from the moment she arrived ( very promptly btw). She stayed afterward to help me get comfortable and help with breastfeeding and she called later to check in on us. My entire birthing experience was wonderful and I believe she played a major role. I recommend her to all my friends in this area. She is professional yet personable and her prices are very fair.
