Highlighted Story—Labor of Love
In a labor of love, three Texas midwives collectively started and are running a birthing center in the west Houston city of Katy six years ago. Hear from two of these women, Cathy Rude and Connie Blokkum, as they share pieces of their journey and how they are loving and serving their community by following their passion for giving other mothers a safe, non-medicated and natural birthing option.
What We Do
Stories of Our City collects and shares real stories from real people from around the world in an effort to cultivate community and global understanding. We produce these stories to reveal that our everyday experiences with family, love, religion, and culture are often similar to those of others living in cities and villages across the globe. We believe that when we share and celebrate a common humanity, we can begin to erase the boundaries and labels that divide us. When we take the time to listen we recognize the “other” as the same as us, giving us the foundation for global community. We are excited to be a part of this and thank you for joining us on this journey! Click here to share your story with us!
