Care Providers

Choosing or changing your care provider is singlehandedly the most important choice of your whole entire birth experience.  Because, in the end you can take all the classes you want, read all the books you can find, hire the best doula, but your care provider will be the "main" person taking charge of your birth and your plans, so if your care provider isn't on the same page as the rest of your birth team (i.e. your husband, your doula, etc) then you may not get your needs and desires met when it actually comes time for the birth.

Also, I encourage you to check into your care providers personal C-Section rate as well as the C-Section rate for that particular practice.  Those statistics may be alarming.  A lot of care providers promise youth world, but then when it come time for labor day, things get too busy or needs get pushed to the side in the business of it all and the fact that they have multiple moms in labor and can't or don't want to take the time to honor your wishes.  So, please do extensive research and talk to other moms who have your same birth wishes that have used your care provider before.  I have had MANY moms switch their care provider even a couple weeks before delivery and they are SO happy they did.  It makes a HUGE difference to be totally supported by your birth team and to feel safe while going through everything.

These are providers that I have worked closely with in the past and I would only recommend the best of the best.  These care providers are highly educated, very competent and professional as well as kind, patient and caring.  I am so thankful to have them in the birth community to be able to offer you the most highest standard of care.  Please take time to call and/or interview them if you want to know more about them.
