Hi, my name is Ryan Cagle. I am a Birth worker in Fort Worth, Texas serving the DFW Metroplex.
I fell in love with birth after having my son in 2015. I decided before pregnancy that I wanted to have an unmedicated birth, if possible. At the time I didn't know what all that entailed but I reached out to people I knew would point me in the right direction. My husband and I hired a wonderful Doula who answered my unending questions and helped guide us to the best places for research on natural childbirth. We took online childbirth education classes through Birth Boot Camp. My husband was engaged and an active participant in the choices we made along the way. I couldn't have done it without him. We chose to deliver with the UNT (now Acclaim) Certified Nurse Midwives (CNM) at Harris Fort Worth and loved them! At 37 weeks I woke to my water breaking and after laboring at home with my husband for 6 hours, our Doula said it was time to head to the hospital. We delivered our son in a completely natural birth in the tub with our Doula and Midwife by our side.
My life changed forever in that moment. Not only was I holding in my arms the most amazing gift from God, I also knew that God's design for us as women, is perfect. The Lord made women to be the vessel through which he creates new life. He made our bodies to give birth. I believe with the proper education and support most women can give birth without medical intervention, if they so choose. I want to help women be an active participant in their birth process and be proud of what miracle from God they can accomplish.
