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!
