Erin delivered my second child through Birthcare (she was with them before she started her own practie) and it was a wonderful experience. She was very competent, thoughtful, and just knew exactly what I needed, etc. My son had an elevated respiratory rate when he was born and she stayed with us after he was born for 14 hours just to monitor his breathing. The other option was take him to the hospital for monitoring and we did not want to have to do that - so she slept on the couch and got up every hour to check his vitals. When his respiratory rate became more steady, at about 4am, she quietly said goodbye and let herself out of the house. My son weighed 11 pounds at birth and because of Erin's skills and patience, I had no tearing and the birth went very smoothly.
My third son was born at home with Birthcare three months ago and I happened to run into Erin at Birthcare and she asked to be my birth assistant (she was already in her new practice). So she attended my recent birth and again, was wonderful.
I don't know the other midwife at MAMA, but Erin is incredible and I felt very safe, very comfortable with her.
