My husband and I are happier than words can convey with the team at Morning Glory Childbirth Services and the birth that they helped us have for our seventh baby. Christine and her assistants were a kind, supporting presence throughout my pregnancy. Each prenatal visit felt like a chat with friends, while at the same time her medical knowledge and the gentle way that she offered it when necessary was entirely reassuring - never invasive. Christine helped me with my sixth baby as well, two years before, when she was finishing her apprenticeship, and it is really neat to see how she has grown in her confidence and abilities as a midwife. Both births went extremely well.
Christine is a master at helping you feel that it really is your birth. She is watching over you and baby, and you know that, but it is very easy to ignore her presence and focus on your labor if that is what you want to do. Conversely, she and her assistants are ready and available if at any time you feel you need their support and encouragement. If I were to have a long or difficult birth, I would be fully confident in Christine's ability to deal with problems as they arose, forseeing them whenever possible, and to bring our family to the best possible outcome in as much as anyone is humanly able. Since my daughter's birth in 2010, Christine has supported me through two miscarriages with loving comfort and advice, and we are now expecting another baby, with her assistance, of course. We wouldn't choose any other midwife.
