Hey! It's Asia. Born, raised, and a current resident of Fort Worth, Texas. I'm a wife to a hard-working, God-fearing husband and a mom of five whole humans—four boys and one princess. My oldest bonus son was born via emergency cesarean; my biological four were all born at home. We also have a dog.

I graduated from Dunbar High School in 2011. As a pre-med student, I attended the University of Texas at Austin from 2011 to 2013. As a member of Kappa Rho, a pre-medical honor society, I shadowed doctors and experienced the hospital setting in many different ways, encountering lots of people who needed healing. Life happened, and I left UT and returned to Fort Worth. I thank God for life's experiences; I landed where I should be, not in someone's medical school.

My journey to birth work began three years later with the pregnancy of my daughter. I certainly considered the hospital setting as a mom on Medicaid, but I didn't think I needed to be healed—so why go there? Learning that Black women in the U.S. are three to four times more likely to die from childbirth complications than white women pushed me even further toward midwifery care, where the statistics are better. I started researching Midwifery care in my area and landed at Gentle Beginnings Birth Center.

I became the first person in my family since my maternal great-grandmother to deliver out of the hospital, to breastfeed, baby-led wean, and cloth diaper. Immediately after my daughter's delivery, I became a doula #TrainedByNikia Lawson under DONA International. I attended lots of births both in and out of the hospital.

In 2020, during the height of the COVID pandemic, my first midwife became my preceptor, and I started my apprenticeship under Cheryl Gaspard, CPM, LM. With midwifery, I found my passion. Caring for families and being "with women" during one of the most intimate experiences of their lives makes me happy. There's something special about watching people become parents, witnessing the strength of women, and welcoming new life.

When I'm not helping people have babies, I enjoy reading (I'm a huge Harry Potter fan), dancing, listening to music, binge-watching good shows, outdoor activities with my family, and traveling.

I am a Certified Professional and Licensed Midwife ready to serve our community.  #GetYouAnAsia
