These ladies are definitely passionate about what they do and it shows. I always wanted to use a midwife and have a natural birth and I am so glad that they are here in Brandon. They provided great prenatal care and all were genuinely concerned for my health and well being. Despite being almost 42 weeks and the hospital wanting to induce me, they stuck with me and gave me the encouragement and perseverance that I needed and we ended up having our son exactly the way I wanted to without any interventions and I am truly grateful for that. Please consider them if you are looking for a natural birth experience.

This experience of my 2nd pregnancy was such a breeze compared to my 1st pregnancy dealing with an awful obgyn who didn’t care about my concerns. The midwives here not only care, but are knowledgeable and will share that knowledge with you as much as you want. They have a lending library and their classes are packed full of information & scenarios to think about. Their suites are spacious with private bathrooms with tons of hand rails I personally used to grab onto while having contractions. Highly recommend.

I absolutely love this birthing center. Very welcoming and respectful of your lifestyle and decisions with the way you want to approach your pregnancy and birth. I feel like everyone really puts their maximum effort to do their designated role and their communication with their patients is right on! I came to them later on in my pregnancy because my family and I were moving a lot the first 5 months, but they accepted me with arms wide open. (Obviously because I’m not a high risk pregnancy and had prenatal care elsewhere beforehand.) Rhis place is so serene, clean and beautiful that we chose to have the birth in the center even though our first born was delivered at our home 3 years ago. All the midwives and nurses are sweethearts!

Words could never express how grateful I am for all of the women here. My first child was born in a hospital setting and it was an awful experience up until my son was finally born. This time around, I wanted things to be drastically different, and I definitely got what I wanted. The location is awesome, close to all kind of things, warm and homey, and just the right size. I loved every aspect of my birth. From being able to self pace, control where I was at and could move around, use the birth ball for pain management and meditation. No matter how “out there” my ways are compared to what most envision with a birth, they were totally supportive. I could play my own music, have essential oils, be in the tub or on a bed. I was so comfortable and at ease. I could not have asked for a more uplifting and empowering birth. Thank you all so much for making my pregnancy and birth such a special time!
