I want to help you have the best birth possible.

I'm Cori Lively, and I am a homebirth midwife serving the DFW area.  I have been attending births professionally since 2003, and I opened Barefoot Midwifery in 2006.  I am both a Texas Licensed Midwife and a Certified Professional Midwife with the North American Registry of Midwives.  I am a Trained Breastfeeding Educator and maintain current certifications in CPR for Healthcare Professionals and Neonatal Resuscitation.

I believe that my presence is not to direct you in your care and choices, but instead to walk beside you on your journey.
