We met Lisa toward the very end of my pregnancy and we consider ourselves so lucky to have found her.
I so appreciated how she took the time to really get to know our family: stopping by our home often, sharing ideas, having meals with us, bringing laughter. There were belly palpations and fetoscope use, but the medical procedures really fell into the background or at least didn’t dominate our time with her. After having experienced prenatal care from other local midwives, I also want to acknowledge Lisa’s high skill level. She uses the fetoscope effortlessly and was confident in determining my baby’s position. She possesses a unique combination of intellect and intuition and most importantly, she really trusts birth. She respected my birthing wishes to be left alone and interfered with very minimally. During my labor, she remained calm and non-reactive, checked in on me without being invasive and closely tracked my progress. Our baby was born gently in our home which was such a beautiful way to welcome her earth-side. My birth experience brought me in direct contact with a deep internal strength that feels so crucial to have accessed amidst my passage into motherhood. Lisa’s postpartum support was truly invaluable—she was 100% there for us as we adjusted to being new parents and it really felt that she became a close member of our family. You will not regret choosing Lisa as your midwife!
