Our Mission

We are an Oklahoma-based community and resource dedicated to being a source of encouragement, education and empowerment for mamas in the pregnancy, birth, postpartum and motherhood journeys.

Just like in birth and motherhood, we know that even in the hardest moments being rock solid in our "why" can carry us through. As mamas, our love for our kiddos is our why... at Birth OK, YOU are our why.

Hearing your stories, seeing you rock your birth experience, and cheering you on as you navigate pregnancy and motherhood is why we are committed to showing up and providing amazing free resources to empower you in your journey.

The Mag & Directory

 

In our quarterly magazine, we're committed to featuring the life-changing births and stories of Oklahoma mamas, while providing mamas with trustworthy, evidence based articles on pregnancy, birth and postpartum written by top physicians, midwives and healthcare providers. Plus, we're partnering with local businesses and top pregnancy, birth and baby brands to provide you with first-hand insight and reviews on all of the topics that matter most in this season!

Through our directory, we can connect you with local businesses dedicated to serving mamas, and your DREAM birth team so that you can surround yourself with the support you need to have an incredible birth experience.

The Tribe

You know that whole saying "it takes a village?" Well at Birth OK, we not only believe it... we live it. We know that as mamas, we thrive in community... so we have worked hard to cultivate a safe space that mamas can turn to when they have question, need resources, or simply want their story to be heard.

We love to encourage and celebrate each other in every moment of this motherhood journey - and we'd love for you to join us!

Come chime in on Q&A Wednesdays or share a photo as a part of our Photo Friday theme. No matter were you are on your journey... there's a place for you. We can't wait to connect with you!

Founded by birth photographer and doula Brittany Fisher, Birth OK was born out of a desire to make an impact within the Oklahoma maternity care system by creating a resource for moms that provides trustworthy, evidence based articles, a directory for providers in the Oklahoma birth community, and a community and safe space that moms can turn to when they have a question or want to explore their options. Throw in some fun feature articles and a few beautiful birth stories and you've got a recipe for a little bit of birthy-unicorn magic! (We want everyone to share in the magical Oxytocin high that so many of us in the birth community ride on a regular basis!)

Brittany Fisher

Editor-in-Chief, Publisher

Brittany is a mama of two boys, wife to a handsome resident doctor, and self proclaimed "birth junkie" with a passion for following Jesus, serving mamas, and lingering in good conversation over a glass of bubble tea (or a cup of coffee will suffice too!)

She started Birth OK in an effort to encourage, educate and empower mamas by creating a single resource moms can turn to where both the medical and midwifery models of care are represented, with hopes to cultivate a truly collaborative care model in our state. She also has passion for helping businesses within the birth community succeed and grow! She is the birth photographer, filmmaker and doula behind Micah Lynn Birth Stories, her Tulsa-based birth documentary business, where her goal is to serve and empower mamas by helping them discover their own strength through their stories.
