TASHA THOMAS, APRN, CNM (SHE/HER)
Certified Nurse Midwife (Belton team)
I am Tasha Thomas, I am a Florida native (Go Gators!), new to the area and I am so excited to be a part of the Revolution Team. I am a mother of two wonderful boys who keep me on my toes. We are a military family so we are making our way around the world as much as they will allow. I am a graduate of Frontier Nursing University and I am currently pursuing my post-graduate certificate to add on a Women’s Health Nurse Practitioner certification. I am proud to be one of the few Black midwives in Texas practicing out of the hospital. I consider myself a supportive, patient-focused midwife, skilled in supporting our clients in labor, birth, lactation support, and gynecological issues.
ASHLEY COCHRAN, CPM, LM, ILFS (SHE/HER)
Licensed Midwife, Integrated Lactation and Feeding Specialist
I live in West Temple with my partner, 3 children, and 2 dogs. I am a nail polish loving, coffee drinking, true crime podcast prone Texas native. I grew up the oldest of 5 children in a sometimes homeschooled, always loud household of people who still genuinely like each other as adults. I served in the US Army prior to the birth of my children. I came to birth work largely by accident, after the birth of my second child, when I began to advocate for people's ability to birth vaginally after a cesarean section, having just done it myself. Finally, someone said, "You know, people do this as a job?"
I am honored to care for birthing people in my community and affirm their rights to safer, more empowering birthing experiences.
I am a preceptor with NARM, MIA, MCU, ATM and I serve both Central and North Texas with this practice. I can't wait to meet you!
ASHTON SWARINGEN, CPM, LM (SHE/HER)
Midwife (Fort Worth team)
Hi I’m Ashton! A Colorado native but long-time Texan by way of my husband’s military service. I was called to midwifery after the births of my two daughters, and knew during my second pregnancy that I was destined for this work. I completed 2.5 years of hands-on apprenticeships in the DFW area and completed my education with the Association of Texas Midwives in March 2023.
I may be new to this midwife life, but I have an instinctual sense for how to connect with people, and provide compassionate care, and I strive to center consent and informed choice in every aspect of my practice. I am thrilled to provide midwifery care to the DFW area and honor your birth story as it develops!
In my free time, catch me podcasting the newest true crime, sweating it out at Camp Gladiator, or jamming to Greta Van Fleet.
MALAYIA COOLEY (SHE/HER)
Advanced Student Midwife (Belton team)
I am currently pursuing my midwifery license through the Portfolio Evaluation Process under the North American Registry of Midwives.
I am also a Postpartum Doula, Childbirth Educator, and Child Development Expert in Central Texas. I specialize in trauma-informed care and reproductive justice for people of color throughout their pregnancy and postpartum periods.
My background in Early Childhood Intervention (ECI) has taught me how to prepare families for the birth of their little ones with perinatal diagnoses as well as developmental delays and disabilities during the postpartum period.
I pride myself in providing families with the resources and tools needed to parent well after my time with them. My mission is to empower families to make educated decisions, ask questions, and advocate for themselves.
In my free time, you can find me hanging out at the lake or listening to true crime podcasts!
GLORIA THOMAS (SHE/HER)
Placenta Encapsulation Specialist, Labor Doula (Belton team)
I was born and raised in Homerville, GA, and moved to Killeen in 2011. I am married with one VERY sassy toddler and a dog who thinks they're a human. I worked in daycare for about 4 years and found my love for babies. When I gave birth to my first child in 2018, I did so without the support of a doula or a midwife, and I realized just how important it was. My research started immediately, and I jumped in head first in 2019. In my spare time, I braid hair, craft, bartend, and start new businesses (I own 3 currently!). I'm a champ at Spades and I love to try new recipes!
RAVEN SULLIVAN (SHE/HER)
Placenta Encapsulation Specialist, Labor Doula (Belton Team)
I am 27 years old and mother to one daughter and three dogs. I was raised in South Carolina. I have worked with kids for as long as I can remember. My mother owned her own daycare as well as fostered kids which I had the pleasure of partaking in. After my birth in 2014 I decided I wanted to pursue being a doula and a lactation consultant. For me pursing my dream to be a doula is personal and empowering to me and every family I cross paths with.
In my free time I love mini adventures, crafting, and outdoor activities. I also love cooking and finding new foods and restaurants to try.
I am looking forward to assisting in your birth story.
