I had Claudia at my first birth when she was with birthstream and it was great! She has some really great stories about Amish births by candlelight which made me more confident that she was a great midwife!
As for Birthstream, Ive heard stories that people werent satisfied with how the mws acted after a transfer. I wasnt a transfer but I had to have my dd at a hospital for a heart defect and birthstream came with me! They were amazing the whole time and PP. Yeah, they said some things, but I contributed it to lack of experience with the situation more than rudeness. Tosi has never been hospitalized. Ever. I never expected her to understand at all. But, Tosi was there for me every second of labor and delivery and for hours after our babe was whisked off to NICU and her outlook was pretty bleak.
I just had a home visit with them 9 month PP and dd was as comfortable in her arms as she is in my arms!! Even when my dd was in the NICU for months, going through surgeries, unable to BF, Tosi and her crew were calling me to offer to run errands, wait in the waiting rooms with me, they researched dds problems and offered advise.
I hope Im not offending anyone, this is purely my very personal experience with them. I just wanted to throw in my 2cents here on Birthstream, even in the worst situation, they were there for me!
