I loved everything about my homebirth; especially that the midwife and her team were there with us for the entire experience and were so relaxed, wise & calm.

Having the right birth team is important in assuring a comfortable and safe environment to welcome your new baby. Our unique team approach includes the use of a second midwife to assist at each birth, giving you two certified providers. This allows us to provide the safest care possible, with a midwife for you and a midwife for your baby. Midwife Elizabeth includes the assisting midwife's compensation in the total cost of care - so it's at no additional charge to you! We realize this approach is slightly unusual in the state of Oklahoma, but it is the standard of care in many other countries, including the U.K. You will be given the opportunity to meet your assisting midwife at a routine prenatal visit, if you desire.

Each assisting midwife brings a wealth of knowledge and personality to every birth that complements one another and offers incredible versatility.  Please see the list below if you'd like to learn more about the midwives that work alongside Elizabeth at births.
