Midwife Birthing Support Reviews in Pittsburgh


The Midwives are a wonderful group of helpful, supportive and intelligent women. I had my first and third babies there, and would have had the second there as well, had they not put us on a waiting list due to being full. My pregnancy in 2010 was a stressful one, because my husband was in-between work, and we were using state insurance. The billing department was unhelpful and blatantly rude. However, the wonderful nature of the Midwives does make up for what the billing department lacks, and thus makes it worth putting up with the billing department to have a baby at
The initial appointment is an hour long, and
went over all of the extensive history I was required to fill out. Subsequent appointments were closer to 20 minutes, and the Midwives have a great record of being on time, with the exception of an emergency. The offices are upstairs, and the birthing room are on the ground level.
partners with Mercy Hospital, and therefore, prefer ultrasounds to be completed at Mercy, along with any medical interventions which cannot be handled at the birthing center.
My labor and delivery at
was wonderful with both children. The Midwives and nurses were attentive, kind and helpful, without being intrusive or pushy. My birth plans were followed as I had wished, and the environment was the best I could have hoped for. A post-partum visit to our home was scheduled for a couple of days following the birth of our children.

I began seeing the Midwives at
in December 2009 and delivered my baby on
7th. Prior to my becoming pregnant, I had gone for years to an obstetrics practice that is well regarded and highly professional. However, I wanted something different for the birth of my first child. The daughter of a co-worker referred me to the Midwives at
, who had delivered her two children. I have a friend who has worked with the Midwifery Center in the Strip District for the birth of her three children, and she loved the experience. Having my first child at 40, however, the services provided by the Midwives at
seemed ideal to me. I'd have the personal care that is customary of midwifery, but the services would take place at a first class woman's hospital. I can't say enough about the experience. I knew from my first prenatal appointment that I had made the right choice. I loved each of the midwives who I saw throughout my pregnancy, and my labor was overseen by three outstanding women (my water broke two weeks before my due date, so it took me ages to dilate) over a 52 hour period (I wasn't seen by each midwife concurrently but labored through a portion of two 12-hour shifts and one full 12-hour shift). I really wanted to have a vaginal birth, and I really believe that if I hadn't been with the midwives, I would have been pushed to have a c-section. When your water breaks, doctors generally want the baby delivered within 24 hours, because they're nervous about infection. The midwives constantly tended to me, taking my temperature to insure I wasn't running a fever and finally (with the help of petocin), I delivered a healthy 7 lb 12
baby boy. I loved my experience with the midwives. There's no question that if we were to have another baby, we'd go with them. The warmth and care they provided was invaluable and was responsible for the best possible birth experience I can imagine. I get all choked up thinking about it, so I'd better sign off.

I first came to
Pittsburgh Midwives Provider Name Locked
in early 2008, when I discovered I was pregnant. I used their prenatal services throughout my pregnancy and delivered at the center in September 2008. Since then, I have also scheduled my annual gynecological exams at the center. I am thrilled with the service I've received from the midwives, nurses, and office staff associated with
Pittsburgh Midwives Provider Name Locked
. They were informed and informative, took a patient-centered approach to providing the kind of care I was looking for (in this case, a more laid-back/hands-off approach to pregnancy), kind, thorough, patient, respectful of women, nurturing, family-centered...in general, totally awesome. After my birth experience at the center, I knew I would never want to go back to my previous gynecological practice. The only negatives that I can mention have to do with availability and scheduling. It can be very difficult to schedule an appointment. Gynecological exams are customarily scheduled a year in advance. During my pregnancy, I had a great deal of flexibility in my schedule--I can't imagine how hard it would be for women with regular work hours that wouldn't accommodate early afternoon/morning appointments. I do think that the necessary rotation of midwives and business of the practice sometimes lead to a feeling of being a little "lost" in the process. I found midwives didn't always make accurate/detailed notes--so I'd find myself repeating what I'd said 2 weeks ago, or getting a "Oh, wait, you haven't had your ___ yet? We have to get that done right away!" I wish there was a slightly more formalized process or sense of pacing through the prenatal care--maybe some kind of layperson oversight of the case/contact/guidance through the process.

It has been a wonderful experience. They have been my favorite health care providers ever! They have been incredibly responsive and helpful to meet. I can sometimes be problematic, but they meet my needs. I am a patient who can't participate in their center because of health issues, and they have worked with me and my doctors through everything. They were really helpful with everything with my C-Section. Their entire network is complete and very reassuring. They help people with every level of need. On Fridays they see people who do not have health insurance. They do a lot of community work also. I have never had a problem with anything there. The only problem is they take a lot of insurance, but they don't take some insurance so I recommend calling to see if they take your insurance.
