With a wealth of knowledge, unwavering kindness, and a passion for caring for women, Maeve is a treasure to the natural birth community. Throughout both my pregnancy and postpartum time period, she provided the highest quality care for me and patiently answered my initially skeptical husband’s questions. When the big day came and I called her to say my contractions had begun, (in the middle of the night of course) she answered the phone laughing, contagiously sharing her joyfulness for this special time in my life. She gave me the confidence and courage to pursue my desire for a natural birth and I couldn’t have been happier or healthier under her care. I am already looking forward to having my next baby with her by my side!
Maeve has been so nurturing and attentive to me as a client. She’s been thorough, compassionate, supportive, comforting, available, and full of wisdom. She’s taken my medical history into consideration for all decisions. She’s been a wealth of knowledge, resources, and support. Her guidance, knowledge and compassion has meant the world to me and my family. She’s truly cared for my whole family in our journey. She has advocated for us and empowered us in our decisions. She’s a truly, lovely human and we’re so thankful to be in her care.
Maeve was a wonderful support throughout my pregnancy and she helped me achieve the VBA3C I was hoping for. She gave me the confidence to believe in my body and I had an amazingly efficient 7 hour home birth! I cherish the experience and that my baby girl was able to pick her own birthday!
Maeve’s breadth of experience and passion for midwifery care made her an invaluable resource during my pregnancy. She never makes you feel rushed, is patient with any and all questions, and easy to reach at all hours.
I absolutely can’t say enough good!! Maeve is the most amazing midwife and Godly woman!! I was a vba2c and Maeve supported, loved and encouraged me to the point where I had NO FEAR of vbacs the way the medical world made me fear them. She was always available and became not only my midwife but a mentor. I loved my first midwife experience!!!!
Maeve exceeded every single expectation we had for what we wanted our birth experience to be. She made us feel like family rather than patients. She walked us through progesterone treatment in the beginning when we thought we were losing our baby. She counseled me through gestational diabetes. She even helped my sisters and answered questions about their babies when they came with me. We received a level of personal care that blew me away. When we had to switch our birth option days before our son was born, she graciously accommodated and came to our home instead of our previous location. She walked us through bringing Titus into the world in a safe, peaceful environment and helped us achieve a natural water birth in the comfort of our home. She has our gratitude forever and we are hoping to have her with us many more times!
She gave me exactly what I wanted in my homebirth! Every single thing I wanted came to fruition. My birth was all about me and Maeve helped me see things in birth I never would’ve thought of! She checked me when she arrived and I was already 8cm but could’ve sworn I was only 2cm by how calm I stayed thanks to being in the comfort of my own home. I got to feel my baby’s head when he emerged, I stayed hydrated and well fed through labor and afterward. She responded quickly when necessary but I didn’t even notice what was going on around me because I had my baby and he was never taken from me. Absolutely grateful for the safety and care of my third baby and first homebirth!
Maeve is an incredible Midwife who will give you the expert and motherly advice needed to care for both you and your baby, and will steer you in the safest direction at all times considering science and natural methods. I say so because I had planned a birth center delivery at an out of state location but developed pre-eclampsia on my last month of pregnancy. At the time, she advised me on what to do next, followed by a phone call to the the hospital so they’d be ready for me at Labor and Delivery upon my arrival. That was just the beginning of an amazing support throughout the labor, NICU, and postpartum. Maeve really carries a balanced practice between what’s natural and what’s medically needed to care for you and your baby individually. So professional and full of passion for childbirth. I can’t express enough how thankful we are! Thank you tons!!!
Maeve was instrumental in giving me the beautiful birth experience I wanted for myself and for Evelyn. She, and the rest of my birth team, made me feel so safe and loved. I consider her a dear friend and hope to have her at my future births.
I met Maeve the night before I went into labor. She gave me confidence that I could avoid the hospital and have a home birth, no problem. I got my VBAC and had an amazing birth experience!
We just wanted to let you know how much we appreciate your assistance over the last 9 months! We couldn’t have achieved the birth we wanted without your guidance. Your reassurance, knowledge, and gentle hand definitely made the journey to our VBAC a success. Now that our baby is here and I have had a little time to reflect on this birth and the birth of my first child via c-section, I have concluded that if every woman were to have a midwife like you there would be very few OB’s needed in this country. I thank you for what you do and how you are helping to make the world a kinder, gentler place - starting with birth.
Maeve is the most caring, knowledgeable, and sweet midwife. I promise you, that you will not regret considering her for your pregnancy. I drove an hour (each way) to see her for my prenatal appointments and I’d do it again without question if I were to ever become pregnant again. She’s 100% worth the drive if your anywhere in the DFW area. After prenatal visits I’d always leave her office feeling refreshed. She is more than just a midwife, she’s a wonderful person. I can’t say enough good things. If your pregnant in the DFW area do yourself a favor.... CALL. HER.
Maeve has been our midwife for the birth of all three of our beautiful, healthy babies, and compassionately walked with us through our miscarriage. I cannot stress enough how invaluable and beloved she is to our family; she is the perfect blend of wisdom, truth, and love, and an amazing coach to have by your side during birth, as well as a wealth of information all throughout pregnancy. Each of my home/birth center births have had their own exciting twist in the end, but she’s calm and cool, and handles everything with incredible grace while somehow radiating comfort and confidence. She’s amazing! She feels like home and I couldn’t recommend her enough. We love Miss Maeve!
Maeve’s vast experience both personal and professional in the realms of womanhood, motherhood, and midwifery are absolutely priceless. Her professionalism in any situation will blow you away. If you are looking for the easiest person to share with as well as the shrewdest bulldog to fight for the experienceyou wish to have with the flexibility and love to cushion any unknown twists and turns your journey may take, Maeve is the one!!!!
Maeve is so amazing at what she does! I cannot imagine anyone else supporting me through pregnancy, birth, and postpartum care. She took the time to get to know my husband and I and build a relationship of trust with us. She has such a gentle and kind spirit and she is incredibly knowledgeable about a wide range of topics. I felt like I could bring any fears or concerns I had about pregnancy or birth and she always had good insight. The birth of my son was everything I hoped it would be and I’m so thankful for the role Maeve played in that. It feels like she is part of my family now!
When my husband and I decided we wanted to start our family, I began researching midwives before we were pregnant. I read Maeve’s bio online and instantly knew she was who we wanted at our future birth(s). I met her shortly after that and it just confirmed what I already knew. She was the best choice for us. Thankfully, we became pregnant shortly after and I got to know Maeve as a midwife. She was very attentive and even motherly as she concerned herself with not only my pregnancy needs, but my overall health - physical and emotional. We saw her consistently through the pregnancy and had a very fast, easy birth. We continued to keep in touch with Maeve and started seeing her again a few months ago for pregnancy #2! We are excited to be under her care. She is so knowledgable! Because of my line of work, I have had the special opportunity to work with her on the provider side of things for one birth and was even more impressed with her generosity and caring nature. She is on the very short list of people I trust to take care of me and my family. I recommend her to everyone!
Finding Sacred Path Midwifery was a great gift! Maeve and all her crew are extremely capable and responsible people. I felt confident with my pregnancy and mainly, during the whole birthing process. Their support was amazing even after the birth, when I needed help with documents and other issues. Maeve is always available to clear our doubts and help us to cope with every situation we may face. I’m very thankful for having met Sacred Path Midwifery and will surely recommend them to every expecting friend!
After the birth of my first son at a birthing center, I knew I needed a more personal level of care the next time. I have a fear of anything medical so I was determined to have a home birth with my second son. My husband and I met with Maeve to see what her prenatal and postnatal care was like. From the first visit, we were impressed with how kind, knowledgeable, and caring she was. She was confident in my ability to have a natural, at home birth. Not only did Maeve make sure I was physically healthy, she made sure I was emotionally healthy. In between prenatal appointments, I would receive texts saying how she was praying for me and asking how I was feeling. She was able to communicate any concerns she had with tact and kindness and never pushed anything I wasn’t comfortable with. When it came closer to my son’s birth, she reminded me how confident she was in my ability to have a happy, healthy birth. She was in tune with my every need as I labored and after my son’s birth. I could not have asked for a better midwife to be there or a more beautiful birth. Unfortunately, I had to go to ER a few days after because of complications of the birth. I was terrified and confused but Maeve was able to help my husband and I navigate through the whole, ugly process. She recommended a doctor she trusted, came to visit me after the procedure to make sure I was alright, and even helped us with insurance troubles. Her postpartum care was just as stunning as her prenatal care. She continues to check in on me, to this day. She will definitely be my midwife for my next baby! I cannot thank her enough for a such a wonderful experience for me and my family.
Maeve is an incredible midwife with a wealth of knowledge on natural birth, VBACS, breastfeeding and more. She has helped so many women in encouraging their VBAC birth, and seeing their dreams fulfilled in having the birth they always wanted. She’s very personable and will go out of her way to help you. We love Maeve!
Great supporter of VBAC, works long, hard hours for her mamas, makes sure her patients keep themselves healthy and is extremely knowledgeable and trustworthy in her field.
8 months into my pregnancy, I decided I wanted a midwife when my doctor of 5 years made me feel like I was just another patient, and my wanting to do labor in an unconventional way was brashly disregarded. It was at that point that I found Maeve through a friend whom I respect dearly. My first appointment with her, and I just knew...I had found the woman I wanted to help me birth my first child. FINALLY, I could be excited about my labor! Well, my instincts were correct. My home birth was amazing. I fought the labor until Maeve sat down with me and told me how to relax and let it peacefully happen. After I found the peace she had suggested, the rest of my labor flew by. Literally, 9 hours total, and 4 hours from that point until he was born! I had no fear and trusted my body to do what it needed to do because I trusted Maeve to take care of my son and I if something went wrong. It was beautiful and perfect! The best parts were having my mother and sister there to be by my side with my husband and I, and of course, being able to eat pizza and goldfish with orange juice in MY OWN bed with my new baby and my family afterward. Our little chunk is 8 months old, and I still am able to text Maeve and ask for advice when I need it. She is amazing, and has truly become someone I can call my friend. I love her! I am looking forward to my next home birth with Maeve already...now, I just need to talk my husband into a little brother or sister! PS. Maeve made my mom a believer in the awesomeness of midwifery and home birth...this was not an easy task! Right, Mom?! xo
Maeve was a true blessing for my husband and I. She helped us plan an amazing birth taking into consideration the medical needs and selfish wants of mommy. 3 weeks before my guess date I developed preeclampsia- she was able to identify it knock some sense into my head and even sat on the phone calling in favors since for some odd reason all the doctors I was comfortable seeing happened to be on vacation. After my c-section I was too unstable to move into ICU but Maeve remained at the hospital with my husband, my baby, and even got her hands on some donor milk! This was such a blessing as all of our family lives on the east coast and my husband was given a brand new baby and told it didn’t look like his wife was going to pull through. Thank you so so much Maeve for being the knowledgeable, caring, strong, supportive woman that you are. God bless you in all the wonderful things you do!
I admit, I wasn’t down with all this hippie birth your baby at home nonsense...until I met two women who changed my mind and my life forever. Where were you guys 22 years ago when I gave birth to my babies!!! Thank you for empowering my daughter and teaching her to trust her body to work as God designed it to. Bonded forever! I wholeheartedly recommend this midwife!!!!
Maeve was our midwife for both our boys, and we LOVE her! She was everything I was and will ever be looking for: she is a well of knowledge (knowledge is power!), an honest and thoughtful voice, and a brilliantly competent and compassionate woman. She has been to us a mentor, a friend, a counselor, and of course a phenomenal midwife! Her genuine heart and loving, joyful spirit are always just what I need, and from prenatals to birth-day, I so look forward to seeing her. I would wholly commend her to anyone even THINKING about having a baby. She’s the best!
Perfect midwife and extra supportive of VBAC mamas just like me! My husband and I love her so much we wouldn’t ever consider going somewhere else.
Maeve was a Godsend to my family. Her experience, not only as a midwife but as the loved one of multiple service members, made her uniquely suited for our situation. She was able to guide me through pregnancy and birth with a type of love and empathy that no other midwife could have given me. I am forever grateful to her. ♥
I can’t express in words how grateful I am to Maeve for the level of care I received. We found out at about 34 weeks pregnant that I had polyhydramnios (too much amniotic fluid) so after monitoring the amniotic fluid levels weekly, my husband and I decided to have our baby at the hospital. I fully expected Maeve to convince me to go along with our home birth plan, but she was so supportive of our decision. She worked closely with the midwife team at the hospital and was there for my labor and the delivery, it was as if I had a home birth. The comfort, support, the soothing sound of her voice saying “You are doing great Mama, breathe Mama, you can do this Mama” was exactly what I needed. Maeve is gifted by God to bring babies into this world! She is so knowledgeable and patient. She knows what she is talking about so listen when she tells you to stay away from the junk food. :)
To my wonderful midwife Maeve...you were amazing...you encouraged me every step in The Lord and took such amazing care of me. Not only a midwife but a friend. I hope our time together isn’t over :)
Maeve, I can not tell you how much I am in your debt. Your guidance through not only pregnancy but the entire 60 hour birthing process was invaluable. The knowledge and uplifting attitude you projected onto us was our light in the tunnel. The way you put together a team out of the people around us in our birth was something of General MacArthur mixed Mother Teresa. Both of whom had unparalleled leadership qualities. I have never quite seen anything like it. You are an amazing woman and care provider, and I thank you from the bottom of my heart. If you ever are in need of ANYTHING, you have my number and it is on 24 hours of the day.
“Mere words could never adequately describe how amazing Maeve is, as a person and as a midwife. She taught me so much about my body that I didn’t learn with my two other pregnancies. She’s extremely informed and was supportive of our choices pre, during and postpartum. We love Maeve!”
Couldn’t be more pleased with my birth experience, it was so much better than I expected. Jenee was personable, caring, and kept my birth plan a top priority. Looking forward to the next baby :)

Maeve Northcross, My Midwife, was a God send! After the loss of my Daughter Victoria, and becoming nearly paralyzed by an epidural, I was terrified to have another baby in a hospital! I searched for an alternative way of birthing, and I found Maeve. She lovingly educated me about the development of my Son Levi during my pregnancy, taught me how to control my glucose without medications, and counseled me through a BREECH DELIVERY! If there is anything you need to know about pregnancy, health, and babies, I highly recommend my Midwife Maeve! Her personal experiences and wisdom made me feel comforted and confident about my birth! God bless you, for you have been a blessing to my family and I! We had a peaceful and successful breech delivery, because of your guidance! Thank you
When we met with Maeve during our initial consultation my husband and I both left knowing she was who we wanted to attend our birth! I loved how nurturing and supportive she was of the kind of birth experience I was wanting to achieve and her knowledge and confidence is what really put my husband at ease! During my prenatal care she always made sure all of our questions and concerns were addressed and if I thought of something I forgot to ask, I knew she was a simple text away from the answer! That was definitely nothing I had ever experienced with my two previous births with an OB. Even though this was going to be our third child, it always amazed me at how much information I learned from her. During my labor, she supported us so lovingly and with a soft confidence that made us feel at ease. You could feel the love that came from her for our family and I am so thankful that when I think about this birth her presence is one of the most things I am grateful for.
I’m not saying this lightly, but with all of my heart: Maeve is one of the most magnificent people on this entire, beautiful planet. I was born at home in 1983 and always knew that I would have a midwife deliver my babies. My husband had never thought much about it, but after our first meeting with Maeve, we walked out of our appointment bursting with confidence - she was the one! We fell in love with her immediately. Each month, I looked forward to our visits, and each meeting, she sat with me and openly answered all of my questions. She taught me how to eat well (trust me! were it not for Maeve, I would have gained 800lbs!) and how to prepare my body for delivering our first son, Jack. She supplied us with reading materials (we love to learn, and she is an EXCELLENT informant) and birth videos, and comforted all of my concerns and worries by reassuring me that my body was built specifically for delivering this baby. Her excitement and love for us, for our baby, and for her mission as a midwife were clearly evident. My labor was difficult and long, but Maeve was vigilant. She never left my side. She rubbed my back and whispered words of encouragement. She was with me the whole time, encouraging my family and my husband through the labor. She fought for me, she loved on me, and she labored alongside me. Jack was born healthy and strong, and he is a happy, breastfed 9 month-old now, weighing in at 23lbs! Maeve Northcross is...wonderful. Her love for the Lord is obvious, and she is consistent in her joy of life. Even on a bad day, she is like sunshine! I am so grateful for her presence in my life. I am so grateful to have had her as my midwife. She was always available to me leading up to the birth, and faithful to help me when I had a newborn who wouldn’t stop crying. She is more than a midwife - she is a friend and a comforter and a true saint. I love her and she is going to deliver all of our babies! Even if we move out of state, somehow she’s coming with us :D
Hi Maeve! I hope you and your family are well! As we counted our blessings during Thanksgiving, I wanted to send you a special “thank you” to the moms who donated milk to Michaiah. As I thought about each of them, I realized a great majority were contacts from you! As I think back over Michaiah’s first few months you worked SO hard, above and beyond anything we expected! You are so generous with your time and resourceful in networking to find solutions. I’m amazed that Michaiah has never had commercial formula, and so grateful for your encouragement not to give him that and give donor milk instead. Feeding him has truly been a collective effort which would have been impossible without you. Being passionate about babies drinking breastmilk is one thing, but you gave us the help to make it a reality for our family. The generosity of these moms has been such a clear example to me of what the church should be - rallying in support of someone in a time of need. I feel like there were many extenuating circumstances with our birth and you handled each with grace and expertise. Each ounce of donated milk has quieted the demons that tell me I’m broken and not mom enough to feed my baby. Thank you for your huge role in that! We’re forever grateful.
Maeve was wonderful at creating a peace and calmness during this very anxious process. She understands the value of relationship building with her clients and is a master communicator. I would highly recommend her to any mother who wants a warm, personal and “different” birthing experience.Maeve was wonderful at creating a peace and calmness during this very anxious process.

Thank you Maeve so much for being with me every step of my pregnancy and delivery. What an amazing day! I will never forget how you got my baby to turn from posterior to anterior! My birth was amazing and I have you to thank. You are a wonderful midwife! Thank you!
