My Name is Kasie McElhaney and together my husband Justin and I have 6 children, Addelyn, Clayton, Talyn, Astryn, Emersyn, and baby Ellisyn. I had the oldest in 2004 in the local hospital. I was just 20 years old and had never really heard much about midwives so....... I did what everyone else did. It was an easy, un-medicated birth but it didn't feel like the hospital was an appropriate place to give birth. It felt very cold and controlled and un-natural. So, when I found out I was expecting my second child in 2008 I found a midwife! She lived and practiced about 2 hours from me but was still the closest midwife I could find. She changed my life! She was my age, beautiful, educated, experienced in delivering babies, and we grew to be great friends. She helped my Clayton to come along in the comfort of my own home with 4 year old big sister, Astryn watching the whole thing. It was such an amazing experience! I knew before she left that night that I was being called to show other women what home birth was all about. I started my training only 3 months later!
I am from Wichita Falls TX, and practiced there for about 4 years. Now I am a midwife in Dallas and am so excited to become a part of this awesome, midwife-friendly environment!
