My husband and I chose Pam as our midwife fourteen years ago because of her experience and warmth. From the first time we met with her, we found Pam to be very knowledgeable, answering our questions thoroughly. We felt very confident venturing into home birth. After the traditional, hospital birth of our first child, we desired a more intimate, natural birth with our second child. Those first few prenatal visits with Pam confirmed our decision. Hour-long appointments provided the time to develop an important relationship with this person who would be there with us to safely welcome our child into the world. Birthing at home is an awesome experience. We have delivered 7 of our 8 children at home. Pam has an amazing instinct, both natural and borne from experience, in helping a woman through the labor process. She knows when to speak, what advice or action is the most helpful at any given moment, and when to work quietly. With three of our babies in particular, she was able to coach us to bring the baby out and into mom’s arms on our own – what joy!
