“Our home birth felt so natural, so safe, and so special. The experience of the birth team gave us the confidence we needed to make it through labor. They seemed to sense just the right level of involvement was needed at various times throughout labor. We felt we were in good hands the whole time.
They pampered us after the birth with ten times more attention, care and support than any medical hospital team. After they left, the house was even cleaner than before the birth and everything was prepared for postpartum care. We really felt blessed… and quite spoiled!
I’ve had a hospital birth and a home birth, and I can definitely say that you receive so much more attention and care from the home birth team. If anything was not going correctly with the birth, I would trust the home birth team to discover the problem much quicker than the hospital team. I gave birth in a high risk hospital unit, and they didn’t even think I was dilated when I when I was actually ready to push. Believe Midwifery is so different. They are in tune with the mother and baby and focus on your needs from the time they arrive until well after the baby is born and nursing well. They provide the type of care and pampering that you’d feel you’d have to pay more for, not less. What a blessing!
“I have no religion, I mostly agree with Buddhism, while living in Bloomington I spent a lot of time in the parks of a temple close to my house. I cannot stand hypercritical and/or pushy “insert organized religion here.” Before I contacted you I was concerned so I spoke to a friend of mine that had a previous homebirth with you. She assured me that you were not pushy with your beliefs & that you are a very genuine person. I honestly can’t remember it every really coming up during my appointments either. I feel that you and your staff are truly good and genuine people, that speaks more to me than any religious affiliation.”
“I loved all the information available. I also like the natural approach for dealing with prenatal issues that arise. The encouragement from the birth team to trust yourself and nautre was wonderful. No complaints.”
“I just wanted to take a minute to tell you how much I have appreciated your services, time, care and even friendship. I have never enjoyed medical services before, and every office visit has been fun, educational, and just nice. I am really looking forward to working with you in the future! You have really been just amazing, and the homebirth was a perfect experience.”
“It was an experience like none other & one I could not have stuck out without the support of a partner as committed to it as I was. Jeremy encouraged & loved on me the entire labor. I was carried along from the incredibly patient & loving care we received from Gretchen, our birth attendant, & Penny.” – Read Toby’s full birth story
“This experience was so empowering. To be able to be in the comforts of my own home and for all intents and purposes, birth and catch my own child. Hold him in the water for some time, then we moved to my bed, where we cut the cord and birthed the placenta. I don’t believe Benjamin left my arms for a good 2 or 3 hours. He was able to nurse before they took him to do his assessment. Should we be blessed to have another child, although right now I am content with 2 perfect little boys, I would chose to do a home birth again in a heartbeat.” – Read Benjamin’s full birth story
