Educate. Support. Nurture
My name is Chidinma Oke. I am originally from Nigeria where my midwifery and nursing career started. I am a cheerful, thoughtful and always ‘giggling mama’. I believe life is good and should be lived to the fullest. My career as a midwife started when I was 18 and loved it! ( Am 56 now😃) My journey to the US in 2010 brought me the reality that I cannot do what I love doing most – catching heads!. This took me to looking and I studied to get my license as a nurse first but not satisfied with that, I joined the AABC in 2015 and while working as a nurse I kept digging to see what midwifery I could do and did a little as a student from West Coast University student in 2017 as my clinicals in Gentle Beginning Birthing Center for 4 months. I was still looking when I bumped into a lady, Allison at School of Midwifery Utah who led me to Jenny Joseph who, after speaking with in turn led me to these wonderful girls – Delighted to Doula and The Abide Women! The story has not ended because it is yet to be told what comes next…

I absolutely love South Dallas! I have been a resident of the community for thirty years. It is the reason I am excited to work with Abide Women’s Health Services/Delighted to Doula, located in “Sunny South Dallas”.
The opportunity to serve the South Dallas/Fair Park community as a Post-Partum Doula allows me the chance to offer care and support to the Goddess’ of my community as they invest time in their recovery and overall healing after child birth.
I was born in South Dallas at Forest Avenue Hospital. I am the proud mother of three adult children. Previously, I worked for a national non-profit organization as Health and Wellness Director covering the Southern Sector branches of Dallas, Texas.
My most favorite saying is, “God is the greatest!”.
