MEET BRIEANA ~ Student Midwife Apprentice
Hello, I am Brieana Davison and I am a Student Midwife. I have been unofficially studying since 2014, and I have been officially studying since early 2018. Currently I am finishing up my assist births and moving in to being a primary student midwife later this year.
I have been a Lactation Education Counselor since 2011 and a Birth Doula, Birth Photographer and Placenta Encapsulator since 2014.
My first love was filmmaking and I have a BS in that, but it never felt quite right. After having my children, I feel like I found my home in birth work.
I am a giver by nature and do a lot of advocacy work surrounding reproductive justice situations, so what better place for me than to support a birthing person through their most life changing time, especially in client led care, when - as a provider, I can uphold my beliefs that everyone has a right to their bodily autonomy and full informed consent.
I have also worked in the fertility for several years and I love all aspects of fertility and well person care. I enjoy educating folks about their bodies and fertility patterns as well as how birth works. I have a knack for herbs especially when it comes to female bodies, health and reproduction and am just a general reproductive health nerd/advocate.
My goal is to continue to learn how to be the best midwife I can be while navigating the system’s rules that I have to follow - and balance that with keeping the birthing process safe and with low interventions. I also strive to be a safe provider for folks of all identities, ethnicities and walks of life.
Thank you for being a part of my journey to being a licensed midwife. I really appreciate your support and trust in me and in yourself during the birthing process.
When I’m not doing birth work, I am spending time with my 2 boys and my dog, usually in an outdoor setting or at a museum. We love camping, hiking and generally exploring life and nature. I am also a huge book worm and I love research. If a problem comes up, I almost always go down the rabbit hole of studying it from all angles.
