Ashlee ByrdOklahoma City, Oklahoma About Me
My passion for all things pregnancy and birth began during my own journey into motherhood. The more I prepared for my birth, the bigger my passion grew. Like most stories in life, Ezekiel's birth didn't go exactly as I had planned. It did, however, completely transform the way I saw myself. I was proud of myself for the first time in a long time. I had a new purpose to add to my life-to raise a sweet little boy that had, by the grace of God, been entrusted to me. Before being pregnant, I would have never seen myself as a birth worker. But thankfully, during the process of having my own child, the dreams and desires I had for myself all along finally made sense and led me here to another new purpose.
I believe birth is a beautiful, sacred, and normal process. I deeply trust that each individual woman knows the best way to birth their baby. Although typically very rare, I also recognize that there is a time and place for medical intervention and technology to protect the well-being of the mama and baby. I have a great respect for care-providers and I believe in the importance of a trustworthy and open partnership with whomever you choose.
I would be honored to be a part of you birth team!
