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

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

I really enjoyed having the support of a mdiwife (well, 2 midwvies!) I wish it could last longer than 6 weeks post partum.

wish for longer care

“Without my midwives help I would not have been able to master breastfeeding. I’m so glad we were able to solve the problem and continue to breastfeed.”

“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

“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

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