Welcome to Holistic Birthing Services.

My name is Deanna Norris. I have been preparing for this role my whole life.

My friend Leigh Steele says, “to be part of the sacred dance of birth is to bear witness to the unfolding of holiness.” I have to agree. As a mother of 3, I can attest to the holiness that is birth. Something sacred and primal happens to a woman when she believes in her body and lets nature take it's course. Being fully present in your birth is something that will change your life forever. The memories of your birth will stay with you, vivid until the last moment.

As a holistic doula and student midwife, I believe in the power of mind, body, and soul aligning to create a perfect union. As your birth doula or student midwife, I will help guide you on this path, so that you might have peace and harmony within yourself before stepping into parenthood. I will do my best to inform, guide and protect your journey while encouraging you to educate, love and embrace this time fully. 

I hope to address physical, emotional, mental and spiritual aspects of your prenatal and postpartum period as well as your labor support desires. Offering midwife under supervision services, placenta encapsulation, belly henna, herbal support and birth plan assistance for birthing families in the Oklahoma City and surrounding areas. Serving families in Edmond, OKC, Guthrie, Stillwater, Yukon, Norman and Central and Eastern Oklahoma birthing in the hospital, birth center, or at home.

It is not only that we want to bring about an easy labor, without risking injury to the mother or the child; we must go further. We must understand that childbirth is fundamentally a spiritual, as well as a physical, achievement. . . The birth of a child is the ultimate perfection of human love.
