About

Alexis joined Birthways in August 2022. While new and fresh to the Birthways community she is not new to Chicago. After moving from her hometown of Washington, D.C. to study Cultural Studies at Columbia College Chicago, she decided to stay and pursue a career in non-profit and birth work. Alexis’ interest in public health and safety started at 12 years old when she became a community sex educator. She believes that women and birthing people of all walks of life despite political affiliation, socio-economic status and geographic location etc all deserve safe and healthy labor and delivery. In 2019 she delivered a child of her own and it was during her postpartum healing that she decided to be intentional and bold about supporting birth people during their journey of pregnancy. While the postpartum time was a challenge, Alexis remembered to use the tools that she learned from labor to help her get through the 4th trimester. Incorporating mindfulness and wholistic wellness, Alexis’ approach to birth support creates a loving environment that is catered to each client’s unique preference and need.

“Justice is what love looks like in public”-Cornell West In creating safe birthing environments, I work to dismantle the notion that women and birthing people have to gamble with their lives and the lives of their children just to have a safe delivery. We are given one shot and when trained well and prepared properly it has to the potential to be the best shot we could have ever taken.
