Your birth is our passion
Louisa empowered me with encouragement, empathy, and knowledge. She provided my husband and me with evidence-based information we needed to make the decisions that were right for us. And then she fully supported every single one. When I got pregnant a second time I was thrilled, in large part because of the hard work we did together the first time.The care we received for both of our very different births was the absolute best.
Having our daughter in a birth center is what allowed me to have the birth of my dreams.
It was an absolute joy to have my baby with (the Salmonberry Midwives). My birth experience was awesome and so much credit is due to the fantastic team supporting me and my partner from the earliest days of pregnancy through my son’s amazing birth, and beyond. I wouldn’t have another baby with anyone else!
Choosing to have our son born in a birth center meant that we were able to have a beautiful water birth and that our son’s first experience of the world was of a tranquil place filled with loving people.
Our visits were full of tea and laughter. My appointments went from 15 minutes with my OBGYN to 45 minutes. The most amazing part was that I never felt rushed in asking those particular worrisome questions we tend to come up with. My partner and I truly enjoyed those check-ups and quickly relaxed into the whole process.
My labor was fast and my immediate postpartum a rare emergency. Louisa managed my care with professionalism, grace and compassion.Even though my labor was swift, I always felt deeply cared for and respected. It felt comfortable and natural to be at home for birth with my husband and providers that I trusted. When my postpartum turned from normal to not, Louisa continued to care for me during the urgent situation while facilitating transfer. I arrived at the hospital in stable condition and recovered well.
Louisa and her team are experts; we wouldn’t want to give birth with anyone else.
Melanie is so absolutely amazing. She has such a caring personality and always made me feel so loved and special. I always felt listened to and she answered endless questions without even a hint of irritation. So informative and helpful. I am so sad that I will no longer see her for regular visits. If we decide to have any more children, we will DEFINITELY be coming back again! We love her so much!
