Monica Stevens assisted at the birth of my first child and was my midwife for my 2nd. She's just wonderful!! I can't say enough about her! She's a strong, caring, dedicated, great person who I am honored to have had my pregnancies/births with. To this day we keep in touch via email/letters/phone, and when situations have come up in my life that were a little too emotionally heavy she offered advice and support and a listening ear.
One of the cool things about Monica is that she is a "mobile midwife" - she comes to your house for all the prenatal appointments. This was really valuable to me since I had another child. It's so much easier than trucking into an office somewhere!
My son's birth was incredible - Monica was great. Best of luck!
