Choosing Ellie for our midwifery care was the best decision we made during our birth process. We decided to use a midwife when we became dissatisfied with our OB-GYN who had very limited time to spend with us, resulting in appointments feeling impersonal and perfunctory. Meeting Ellie for the first time let us know that our experience with her would be very different. Ellie is extremely warm and personable - she'll answer any question and is almost always available by cell or text. Appointments cover more than the basic physical condition of mom and baby and extend to the emotional health and well being of the whole family. Ellie provides the perfect combination of holistic care, humor, kindness, and extensive medical knowledge. My birth was not what we expected as my baby was in an unusual position, however, I call it a perfect birth because I felt empowered and supported throughout, knowing that Ellie was there for me and had the same vision that I did for the type of birth I wanted combined with the medical expertise to guide me in making the best decisions given the circumstances. Postpartum, Ellie has also been readily available to help with issues around recovery and breast feeding. My husband and I feel that we not only received the best quality medical care but also were given the gift of a loving and special pregnancy and birth experience, which is priceless.
