We found Ellie very late in my pregnancy, and working with her was immediately a comforting world of difference from my previous OB. Ellie was a godsend for us - practical minded and funny yet firmly grounded in values that enabled me to have a natural birth. I liked her approach to the possibilities of interventions - she was non judgmental and she immediately sized up the unusual situation my husband and I brought to her and seemed totally unfazed. She is warm in her manner and reassuringly capable. When I went into labor 2 weeks early, she was available. In the hospital, she was ever-present and soothing during my exhausting, painful posterior labor and 4 hours of pushing. Now, postpartum, Ellie gives me advice and listens to my problems even when they are truly beyond the typical scope of care of a midwife. I cannot recommend Ellie more highly.
