Mary Henderson - Beyond Conception Midwifery

She delivered all 3 of my babies at home and she is truly amazing!


Good luck!

I haven't had a birth with Mary Henderson, but I've known women who have had her as their midwife. The stories that I've heard sound a little too much like "Power Birthing" (http://midwiferyramblings.blogspot.com/2009/02/powerbirth-start-pushing-at-5cm.html) for me to be comfortable with her.

I would recommend Stephanie Soderblom at Nurturing Hearts Birth Services; or the midwives at Freedom and The Seed (Wendi Cleckner and Marinah Farrell)


Good luck and happy birthing, Mama!

OP has undoubtedly given birth by now, but I've given birth twice under the guidance of Mary Henderson and there was nothing about either experience that resembles the so-called "power birthing" as suggested above.  I'm actually shocked that anyone could make such a comparison. She is very capable, very experienced, and very knowledgeable. 

ahhh to be able to think well enough to create a clever signature.sleeping.gif someday i will have enough sleep to accomplish this task...
