New Satellite Office

14 Nov 2015

In August of 2015,  Community Midwifery launched a NW OKC satellite office location. We have been excited to see how many of our families have found it to be a convenient option, while still enjoying a full rage midwifery services. Oklahoma City prenatal and postpartum visits are held on Thursdays from 10am-5pm. We have the privilege of partnering with Revolution Chiropractic and have a space specifically dedicated to midwifery appointments.  Revolution Chiropractic is located at 12211 N.

What is HypnoBirthing?

05 Feb 2015

Rhonda Fawks, HypnoBirthing® Childbirth Educator Relaxation is nothing new to childbirth. It is used in practically every method to help mothers during the birthing experience. HypnoBirthing uses this technique as a main focus during childbirth using hypnosis.
