Hi, I’m Katie Ellis. As the founder of DFW Birth Resource, I want to impact the birth community so the positive begins to outweigh the negative. It’s time our society began viewing pregnancy and birth as normal and safe instead of treating women like they’re sick. The opposite is true! You’re body is doing amazing things and you should feel empowered throughout the process, not scared or worried.
In my role as a Doula, I provide continuous support for you and your partner. I’m often asked why someone should hire a doula if they have a partner? I like to explain it very simply; I have an intimate knowledge of birth and your partner has an intimate knowledge of you. We’re able to form one heck of a team completely dedicated to giving you the space, support, help and encouragement you need along the way! I’m here to say “It’s normal and you’re doing great!” Birth is 95% mindset and I work hard with my clients to insure they feel educated, respected, supported and confident for the transformational journey ahead. Doulas support every woman, no matter their past, their future, their birth choices or philosophies.
HypnoBirthing is my other passion. I connected with the book and decided to take classes while I was pregnant with my daughter. My experience was a great one and not only was I not afraid when I went into labor, I found birth to be something I enjoyed! I began recommending all of my clients look into it. I started seeing women walk into hospitals at 8cm with smiles on their faces and crazy looks from the nurses! I remember one birth in particular that really proved how powerful HypnoBirthing is and I immediately decided I had to pursue a certification to teach it myself. I have always thought of birth as natural and safe but hearing the positive stories from those who take this class never gets old!
Aside from my role in the birth world, I enjoy spending time with my family. My husband, Josh and I have been together 12 years and we’re the proud parents of a very talkative and enthusiastic daughter, Charlotte.

Nicole was extremely helpful in achieving the birth I wanted. I couldn't have done it without her!
I was attempting a VBA2C and was very nervous. Sarah was smart, professional, comforting, gentle, and knowledgeable. She helped me get through something I didn't even think I could do, which is to give birth naturally. The delivery of my daughter was the most painful. But because of how the doula helped me, her comfort and confidence and care, I never want to do it another way. She helped turn it from something frightening and seemingly impossible, into one of the most incredible experiences of my life. Thank you, Sarah!!
Katie was so helpful during my labor and birth that her example helped my husband to find his support role. They worked very well together to make labor as manageable as possible for me. She also took pictures during my labor and delivery that we would not have otherwise. We will cherish those precious memories!!
After my c-section, I wasn't sure how I was going to be able to handle a newborn, my toddler, my house and also rest. Deanna was amazing and seemed to know exactly what I needed. I couldn't have handled the first few weeks without her!
