Melek Speros is a student midwife living in south Austin with her husband and three rambunctious young boys. She moved to Austin in 2001 to attend the University of Texas where she completed both her undergraduate studies and law school before discovering her calling to serve birthing families. She completed her academic midwifery program in December 2015 and is currently working through the remainder of her clinical requirements as primary midwife under supervision.
Melek started attending births as a doula in 2012, and studying midwifery and apprenticeship in 2014. Having experienced both cesarean births and a peaceful home birth after two cesareans herself, Melek has a special passion for cesarean prevention as well as supporting mothers seeking VBACs (vaginal births after cesarean).
In her free time, Melek enjoys reading and spending time outside with her family.
