WELCOME to the blog

A wonderful thing about the birth community in Oklahoma is that it's thriving — and absolutely full of passionate, skilled people who make it their mission to provide the best pregnancy, birth, and postpartum resources possible.

I make it my mission to highlight these people and the incredible information and services they have to offer. Hang out with me here and you'll see my featured births, as well as birth provider features and interviews, and information about a BUNCH of different birth and birth adjacent stuff, like breastfeeding, chiropractic car, nutrition and more. Meet the cool people I meet!

I’m not one of those people who thinks the earth is on the verge of implosion at any minute, but I DO think that humans caring about the world we live in and doing our part to not trash it is cool. Do I have a metal straw on my keychain for restaurant visits? No, […]

A while back, someone interviewing new mom Meghan Markle asked her how she was doing, and it looked like she was about to cry when she thanked the interviewer for asking. Granted, Meghan’s got some stressors most of us don’t have, what with being the brand new American in the British royal family and so […]

“I think everybody needs to get some kind of lactation education before they give birth,” said Farah Antoine-Mayberry, owner of Epiphany Birth Services, llc. We were chatting about the importance of making as much information as widely available as possible for first-time moms, or even moms who have had difficult breastfeeding journeys in the past. […]

Birth photography has become more and more popular in recent years (at least it seems that way to me, and I don’t think it’s just because I hang out with so many “birth” people) but I still run into people all the time who find the concept foreign. When I tell people I’m a birth […]

I was nervous about baby Ramzi’s arrival for like… eight months. His parents are basically the world’s best clients, but they live two hours away in Tulsa (I’m in Norman), which is basically my travel limit. Not only that, but during our consultation I found out that at least one of this baby’s siblings came […]

Aaaaand we’re back! I know it took me a little longer than usual to get this one up. Birth workers are busy! Today, it’s my pleasure to introduce the team down at Community Midwifery Services in Norman. I’m doing this blog in a little different format than usual, because an interview with five people just […]

We’re Dr. Daniel, and Dr. Josiah Hackney, and we own Hackney Chiropractic in Edmond Oklahoma. We’re both Webster certified chiropractors. JOSIAH: The Webster technique is additional training that chiropractors can receive after graduation. We both went through the training — it’s 16 hours, of not just learning what to look for as far as adjustments […]

I have been a birth photographer for four years now. I did my first birth after my first son was born. I had a friend bring a nice camera to my birth, because I really wanted a video and there were no videographers in Oklahoma at the time. So I had her bring a camera, […]

Last week I had the pleasure of interviewing this lovely lady. I’ve already worked multiple births with her, so I know what an incredible professional she is, and I am so glad to get to introduce her to you in her own words. Deanna Norris is in her final semester at Midwives College of Utah, […]

Yesterday I had the pleasure of having lunch with one of my clients and the rest of her birth team as we celebrated her little one’s birthday. Of course when you get a bunch of birth workers together, they’re going to talk about… you guessed it! Birth. During the conversation, one of the midwives told […]
