My midwives were great on giving me information on VBAC. I was able to meeting with the physician who did my c-section to discuss VBAC options.  All were for in and I had a successful VBAC thanks to the advice from my midwives.

VBAC choices were respected

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

I felt reassured during labour just knowing my midwife was there. I had confidence in their knowledge and experience.

“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.”

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

“The midwives’postpartum care is second to none. One of the most challenging and confusing times for new parents…first time or not…was made exponentially easier thanks to the support and incredible care and knowledge of our midwives”

Incredible support and care postpartum

“We are extremely satisfied with the care received from pregnancy to postpartum and will be choosing midwives for our next pregnancy. Great work!”

The midwife visits were as meaningful to me as any other part of my pregnancy journey. Just a super positive experience.

a super positive 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!

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