My midwives gave me lots of information so I could make an informed, evidence based decision about my care.

Informed choices

“I couldn’t imagine giving birth without midwives. You were so helpful.”

“We were very impressed with the level of care provided leading up to the delivery of our daughter.”

My care was transferred to Doctor during labor and for delivery. My midwife explained the reasoning and was a great support and advocate for my wishes!

OB transfer

“This is a dedicated team who really cares about safety and quality of birth and pregnancy and postpartum experience.”

I always felt my opinion mattered in all of our discussions; they are like having amazing professional friends!

It’s all about choices, I loved my midwives!

“They were always there for all questions and concerns, all ups and downs throughout the pregnancy. Provided all options and supported our decisions.”

“My midwives were amazing from beginning to end. I felt respected, safe and understood in their presence. I knew I could call on them anytime and that my baby and me would be well cared for.”

“I felt comfortable making the choices we made and felt that we were not judged for our choices. Our midwives provided us with support every step of the way.”

Informed Choice

“Thank you so much for overall EXECELENT care. Would definitely choose midwifery care again and recommend it to friends.”


Thank you to everyone who came out to visit with us at the picnic.

Looking forward to 2024 already !
