Katie Skero is a Christ follower, wife, and mom to five image bearers of the Most High King – in that order. Homeschooling takes up most of her brain space these days, but she has a neglected blog called NourishingLittleSouls.com that keeps her love for writing warm in the wings while she navigates this demanding season of raising little ones. She has given birth in most of the ways you can give birth – c-section, hospital VBAC, birthing center water birth, home water birth, and another (different!) birthing center water birth just two months ago. Thus, birth is one of her favorite topics of conversation.
Athea Boswell lives in Baytown, Texas, with her husband, Winter, and their three children, all who are under the age of 4, as well as three very annoying cats. She and Winter both work at a local church as office staff, children’s pastor, and media director. Athea was initially introduced to Ashley at Wellspring Birth Center when she was pregnant with her first child in 2017. While finances prevented them from the birth they wanted that year, it started them on a journey to a better birth experience in the future. Three children later, two of whom were born at Wellspring, Athea is determined to always use a midwife for her births.
