You all were/are wonderful. We are so thankful the Lord led us to you! Thank you for serving us and for loving our family during Gabriel’s time in utero and his entrance to the world!
I am so grateful for Penny because, had it not been for her, I’m not sure how long I could have continued breastfeeding at that rate. I was crying every time I had to feed him. But things are 100% better now. He latches – and eats – like a champ, every time. – Read Calvin’s full birth story here
My favorite thing about each visit was spending time getting to know the women who would actually be attending my birth. Getting time with Penny was very important to me. I loved every second of my whole birth experience! Maybe actually pushing [my son] out was the most incredible feeling in the world (even though I needed a little help with his shoulders). The gentle reminders to take deep breathes, the positive reactions to things at the time don’t seem positive, and your gentle care for me and my baby during my postpartum hemorrhage were so amazing! Gretchen and Tamrha are amazing!! Your website was helpful, especially reading the birth stories and I became friends with another client thanks to your facebook group. I love that Penny knows so much about essential oils and herbs, and that you have them available in the boutique and office. I never met a single person I didn’t instantly love. I will use this practice for my primary care and will attend future events even though it means a two hour trip each way!

“With every visit, my husband became more comfortable with home-birth. The first trimester, he was very nervous and not okay with a home birth because he thought all a midwife could do was “boil water,” so to speak. I insisted that he come to most of the prenatal visits (not that he didn’t want to, it just interferred w/ his work schedule) and after each visit, he was impressed w/ Penn + staff’s thoroughness, medical skill, and how they had very good preparations in the event of an emergency. Thank-you for taking time to answer his questions and put his concern at ease.”
“My favorite part of the prenatal care was the good conversation and quality time spent at each visit. I love how my birth was my own and not someone (such as people in the hospital) telling us what to do! It’s very nice how quiet and respectful you all were and how you are there when we need you, but do not detract from our experience at all. Your serene support definitely enhanced our wonderful birth! Thank you!! We have enjoyed the website, facebook group, and the boutique as well.”
