"She was very good. I think it is hard to find someone you feel comfortable with, there aren't many good options, but with her I felt very comfortable. I had" to have some intervention during my pregnancy, and she made me feel very comfortable about it. It did not feel over medicalized. The availability was very good. She is a midwife, so she is running around, but she was very available. The office was good and friendly.

"They were great, and I'd highly recommend their services. The staff was compassionate, highly knowledgeable, and did a wonderful job. In fact, I think they saved me from undergoing a c-section.

Midwives provide an alternative to mothers who do not wish to birth their babies in hospitals with traditional medical attention. (Photo courtesy of Angie's List member Andreina C.)

Midwives

Midwives are professionals who offer support to women throughout their pregnancy and handle the labor and delivery of babies. Many couples use the services of a midwife as a great alternative to hospital births.

The overall experience was excellent. They are courteous and helpful, and everyone seems to know exactly what they are talking about. I am really looking forward to my experience throughout the process, and have been very happy with

She made my birthing experience calm and beautiful. I felt that she was in control and very knowledgable. She took a situation that could be scary and made it a calming and relaxing one. She took great care to ensure that I did not tear while pushing. She also let me be in control. There was never any yelling to PUSH like the horror stories I had heard of birth. She let my body tell me what to do. I would recommend her to anyone.

In 2007, the Midwives helped me through two miscarriages - one of which required a DNC. They were compassionate, calming, and most of all there for me through it all. I can't emphasize enough how much their efforts on my behalf meant to me during those difficult times. When I returned to their practice in late 2011, after moving back to Cincinnati, I found myself unexpectedly (but happily!) pregnant. The Midwives have provided all of my prenatal care, including

panicked phone calls at night and treating me at the hospital when I fell. While I'm still several weeks out from delivery, based on the time, attention, and care I've received so far, I can only imagine they'll be fantastic during labor and with my follow-up care. The practice is one of the best for OB-GYN I've been to and I really can't recommend them highly enough. They're skilled, kind, and patient-centered - and all around terrific people.

is very personable, knowledgeable and professional. I'd used a midwife for the second half of my previous pregnancy (and used an OB/GYN prior to that).

provides a personalized level of care that I think is difficult to come by in a standard OB/GYN practice.
While she does do home births, we elected a hospital birth at

Hospital and the birth process with her went well. We're trying for baby #3 right now and I'll be using her again if we get pregnant.

Both of the home births went fine (they were about 4 years apart).

helped me get organized afterward and even cooked food for my family after the first home birth she attended for me, so I didn't have to. That was nice because my husband could stay and enjoy our

and didn't have to go fetch burgers. For the second one, she helped me get organized afterward, made sure the baby was doing wonderfully, too (she did that w/the first one too, no worries). I don't know if we'll have anymore pregnancies, but most definitely, I'd seek her out again and would encourage anyone pondering a home birth to at least plan a meet &

Wonderful Experience with all 3 midwives at this practice - I switched to this practice late in my pregnancy because the other place I had been was just more of a disaster at every appointment.
Chicago Midwives Provider Name Locked
helped me get in and my records and tests fully reviewed immediately and was actually the midwife who delivered my baby boy. She was wonderful at every appointment - knowledgeable caring and really took her time with me. I can say this for all 3 of the midwives.

is the senior midwife there and helps coordinate your experience - they all work wonderfully together. I honestly cannot say enough good things about them. She even opened the office one day after business hours to come in and check me out one day that I was having early contractions. Their relationship with the Dr's in the practice are also excellent. I also had a doula and all the midwives worked wonderfully with her as well to give me an integrated experience of my choice.

It went very well. Sometimes the wait is longer than expected but it is not surprising given the unpredictable nature of women's health needs, especially in a gynecological/obstetrical practice. The midwives are warm and talk to you about your general health before completing any procedures efficiently and with attention to your comfort and ease. They thoroughly explain anything you might have questions about. While the parking at

We worked with
Chicago Midwives Provider Name Locked
and the other midwives at Park Nicollet when we were pregnant with our first baby. Transferring from a typical OBGYN clinic was the right move for us. They offer a Centering Pregnancy program which is a mix of your traditional prenatal health appointments and a pregnancy/childbirth class. I highly recommend it.

is so professional, but laid back and personable. She gave us so much information so we could make informed decisions about our pregnancy. The midwives at Park Nicollet are on staff at the hospital, so you really get the best of both worlds with this program.
