Roxanne Anderson, LM, CPM

Family Birth Services

 

I first became a midwife 26 years ago. During my training in the 1980s, I had the privilege of a traditional apprenticeship in Texas with many senior midwives in the Dallas area, including Helen Jolly Nelson. Watching their intuitive and natural style of attending women based on years of experience, I quickly developed my own faith in the ability of women to give birth. The confidence I gained at that time in the birthing process is still with me today. [more]

Sadly, Ann passed away in 2016.  She was midwife to many, friend to all and a shining example, exhibiting the Christian attributes of love and compassion for all to see.  Her life was centered around Christ and she joyfully entered the gates of Heaven.  Ann left a big hole in the hearts of all those who knew and loved her.   [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]

"You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think."---Christopher Robin (A.A. Milne)

 

Bringing a baby into this world is both precious and powerful. A midwife enters a woman's life when she is undeniably vulnerable and, simultaneously, incredibly strong. I love serving women in that time. The joy and sense of wonder as a family welcomes their baby into the world is miraculous! [more]

As a staff midwife with Family Birth Services in Grand Prairie, I love practicing the midwifery model with its freedom to see each mother as an individual.

Heavenly Hands Birth Center

 

Serving mothers since 2002 as a doula and midwife, it is my honor to empower families to experience natural childbirth in a warm loving environment. I believe in a woman's body to deliver a baby naturally and safely in the setting of her choice. I have a birthing center in Rockwall and also attend home births. 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. As my midwife taught me years ago, if a woman is allowed to make her own healthcare choices, most births can be a beautiful and non-invasive celebration of life! [more]

I witnessed my first birth at the age of 15, and some 13 years later it is even more exhilarating than it was the first time! I find myself forever in awe of the very intricate handiwork of Christ.  The sight of a mother allowing her body to labor and work according to its perfect design to

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

My desire as a midwife is to provide relationship-based maternity care where the primary focus is education, nutrition, support, prevention, holistic care, and a natural pregnancy and childbirth.

[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]

Kassia Walcott, LM, CPM
