Student MIDWIFE: DEANNA NORRIS

Deanna has 3 beautiful sons and enjoys a wonderfully messy life with them and her supportive husband in Edmond. They make a lot of noise together, create masterpieces daily and grow things in their yard. She is currently pursing her Bachelors of Science in Midwifery through Midwives College of Utah with an expected graduation date of December 2018. Deanna has studied and practiced birth work for more than 5 years, and attended 120+ births. Our clients appreciate her warm personality and willingness to share from her life experiences. Her knowledge of herbalism, breastfeeding support, placenta preparation, and doula skills are a special enrichment to our practice.  She has been in clinical placement with us since January 2017 and is also pursuing cross-training with other area midwives.
