Midwife

Ashly Kowalski, CPM, LM

Being a mother of 5 and having two VBAC births of my own, I have come to revere pregnancy, birth, and the growth of a family as one of the most beautiful things about humanity. As a recent Association of Texas Midwives program graduate and Licensed Midwife, and member of the Greater Houston Midwives Alliance, I am privileged to help women and their partners make these experiences as positive and healthy as possible.  Yellow Rose is a midwifery group formed between myself and my partner, Megan Robinson, in a way that creates ultimate support for women and families across the Houston area.

 

Over the course of my career, I have experience with the following: VBAC/VBA2C, Water birth, Twins, Home birth, Birth center birth.

I look forward to working with you!

Megan Robinson, RN, CPM, LM

Hi. My name is Megan Robinson. I attended Angelina College and Stephen F. Austin State University where I obtained my Nursing Certificate and Degrees (LVN - 2008, ADN - 2009, BSN - 2010). I fell in love with my College sweetheart and married him in 2011. We have 5 beautiful biracial babies. It was after having baby #3 at home with a midwife, that I felt called to become a midwife myself!


My nursing background includes 8 years in an acute care hospital setting. 3 years in the Med Surge/Telemetry/Pediatric Departments and 5 years in the NICU/Nursery. While in the NICU/Nursery, I attended hundreds of births where I helped transition the smallest 24 weekers to the largest full-term babies. 
I obtained my midwifery education through the Association of Texas Midwives Midwifery Training Program and apprenticed with 3 amazing and super smart midwives. During my training, I attended many deliveries including VBACs and Twins. Ashly and I believe strongly in natural childbirth, the midwifery model of care, and a woman's right to have informed choices. We have a passion for mamas and babies and are committed to provide excellent personalized care.


I maintain the following certifications: Certified Professional Midwife, Texas Licensed Midwife, Registered Nurse
I am also an active member of the Association of Texas Midwives as well as Greater Houston Midwives Alliance.

Victoria Solis, CPM, LM

Hi. I’m Victoria. I have been a practicing midwife for 3 years. I am the mother of 5 children – 3 biological & 2 bonus – 4 boys and a girl. I have experienced c-sections and a VBAC while on my own journey to motherhood, and it was while pregnant with my first child that I started dreaming of becoming a midwife. 

 

For me, there could be no role more honorable and rewarding than that of a midwife. Midwifery encapsulates everything that I love and is a role that I feel I was made for. I find joy in being an advocate for women, supporting, enabling, and empowering them during the most incredible time in life. I consider midwifery to be more than a job, rather a privilege and a vocation. I feel that I have developed a deep understanding of the role of a midwife and the requirements surrounding it; I will always have a full commitment to a future in midwifery.

I also provide Home Birth Services for self pay clients. If you are interested in a home birth consultation, please email me.

Deshaun Desrosiers, CPM

My name is DeShaun Desrosiers and I’m a homeschooling mother of 2. My passion and journey in birth work began 6 years ago. That same year, I had a successful VBAC and started out as a Doula and Childbirth Educator. Not long after that, I knew I was destined to be a Midwife. My goal is offer holistic and compassionate care, especially for women have ever experienced lack of care due to the color of their skin. For three years, I’ve worked with Houston’s NAACP to address racial disparities in maternal health and childbirth. I have worked alongside 2 years with March of Dimes to train doulas and address inequalities in families who have financial struggles while in need of encompassed care. I’ve had the honor of working alongside herbalist and midwives in both Benin and Ghana, and use many of those teaches in my care. Birth work is truly second nature to me and I’m looking forward to serving you in the capacity you need during your maternity journey.
