Has anyone used Gaye Koconis as their midwife? She is in the same practice as Debby Lesnik (sp?) and I saw her a few weeks ago for a basic check up. We are TTC and she seemed very nice and informed.

Any experience with her or the other midwives in their practice?

I thought Debi was a great midwife. I also remember her having amazing natural birth "stats" when I discussed my birth plan with her. I really liked Jennifer Carney but I think she left the practice. It's a shame since she was my midwife throughout my pregnancy and we really clicked, personality-wise.

Did they hire a third midwife to replace Jenny? I heard they were looking for another CNM.

I only saw Gaye once at the very end of my pregnancy so all I have is a vague first impression.

Also, if you ever have to see an OB there for any reason, I really liked Dr. Goodwin...

HTH!

Thanks! It is just Gaye and Debi right now but a new MW that is joining the practice was in on my visit as an observer. She was very quiet but nice. I don't remember her name.

I also saw Debi for both of my pregnancies/babies' births. The name Gaye really rings a bell, but I can't recall. I think there were a couple who didn't stay long. The last time I was there I met a third one, but I thought that was a Jenny. She didn't have children, had short brown hair, is she gone already? I really liked her a lot.
