How We're Different
"My birth experience was nothing I could have anticipated, but it was everything I hoped for. I was in the comforts of my home with no medical interventions to bat away or unnecessary intrusions. I was surrounded by a dream birth team whom I trusted, and who supported me and my birth preferences. Firen was attentive, warm, patient, and professional the entire way through, and my son was born healthy with no complications. It's been wonderful having Firen as my midwife." -Karen L.
A personal, one-on-one relationship with your midwife is the foundation of your care.
