Elisha & Sheena were wonderful! We really appreciated the home visits. It was much more comfortable to have the meetings at home and that led us to ask more questions & express our concerns. They listened & supported us. They took the time to develop a personal relationship with us so when it came time for the birth we felt confident that we were ready and so were they. Plus they are super fun people!

I loved having Elisha and Sheena as my midwives. I felt cared for all through my pregnancy. during the birth of my son, Elisha's empowering words helped me feel safe and confident in the process of delivering my son. The after care was also exceptional, the visits and answering many new parent questions really put me at ease. I was so blessed to have these women be part of this journey with me. thank you.
Very glad we chose to go with midwives for our birth..felt that we both, my husband and I, could call on them at any time, if we ever had a question. They were able to work with us and be flexible with their schedule throughout my pregnancy. During birth..I was so happy I had chosen the midwives. . since my birth was long and a bit complicated I was extremely happy to have such a compassionate caring healthcare professional. If there's a next time we will definitely go the same route. :)
