Our Moms Say it Best
  • I had an OB with my first daughter and a midwife with my next two. I love that you get more personal care with a midwife; your appointment isn't rushed and you feel like more than a name on a chart. I would definitely suggest to all new mothers to use a midwife!–Meghan, OH

  • Honest. Reliable. Personable. All these words would be one of many I'd use for my midwife. Not only was she great throughout my pregnancy, but went beyond beyond what any OB would during and past pregnancy. I'd recommend a midwife to anyone who is in need of someone as close as a sister or a mother.–Ellie, OH
