A Bit About Me
Grace is a Midwife at Special Delivery Birth Center in Tulsa Oklahoma, and has been a part of their team since 2021.
Grace is a born and raised Okie, who made her way to South Texas to pursue her dream of becoming a Midwife in 2015. She is one of five siblings, and was delivered at home in Arcadia by an Oklahoma lay midwife. Growing up listening to her mom talk about all of her natural births and the way that her doctors and midwives remained calm and efficient while handling various variations of normal inspired Grace to want to be able to provide that same level of care and reassurance to women.
Grace strives to bring normalcy and natural approaches when addressing pregnancy, birth, and postpartum life with women and the birth community. She believes Midwifery is a calling and is passionate about supporting each woman as they achieve their birth goals for a safe and beautiful birth.
