Roxanne Anderson, LM, CPM

Origins Birth Center

 

I first became a midwife in 1989, right here in DFW. During my training in the 1980s, I had the privilege of a traditional apprenticeship in Texas with many senior midwives who were pioneers in this state and the nation. Watching their intuitive and natural style of attending women based on years of experience, I quickly developed my own appreciation of the natural childbirth process as God created it, and the amazing ability of women to deliver their babies when given the right information and support  [more]

Kim Daly, LM, CPM

Grapevine Birthing Center

 

I have been passionate about natural birth even before becoming pregnant with my first son 10 years ago. It would be years later before I recognized that early passion as a calling on my life.

My husband, Michael and I have three sons, all birthed naturally, with three different types of providers; including an OB in the hospital, a hospital water birth with a Midwife and my last son, born at home with the assistance of a midwife. After "catching" my own baby in the water at home I would soon feel that tug on my heart to help other women experience the gentle care and beautiful birth that had changed my life. [more]

Hannah Davis, LM, CPM

Gentle Beginnings Birth Center

 

Hey there! I am Hannah Davis. I grew up the middle of five children. It was a crazy life sometimes but I am so thankful for it. I have a deep love for babies - once I get one in my arms, good luck getting them back! I have an amazing husband, Levi. who is so supportive and probably knows more about childbirth than he ever thought he would! We had our first baby, a precious baby girl, born at home in the water summer 2019! Most importantly, though, is my relationship with Jesus. His love and grace makes this life worth living; and truly is involved in every miraculous step of pregnancy and childbirth.. [more]

I am a Christian and for those who share my faith, I love to bring prayer and praise to the birth I am invited to assist.

bring forth life is indescribably humbling. And the harvest….oh what a harvest! [more]

Kaitlyn Wages, LM, CPM

Origins Birth & Wellness Collective

 

My journey to becoming a midwife actually began while I was a Pre-Med student with a focus in Obstetrics and Gynecology in college. I met my husband, got married, and became pregnant soon after, and realized quickly that I wouldn't be attending medical school anytime soon. (the Lord clearly had other plans for me than I had for myself!) I gave birth in early 2008, and experienced a traumatic birth in a hospital setting. I spent my first several months postpartum gravely ill from an infection I received while in the hospital. My infection was directly related to having an epidural, so with my subsequent pregnancies, I knew I wanted something completely different. I set out on a path different from what I had known, and I chose to have a homebirth with a midwife and doula, and it was an incredible and life-changing experience.[more]
