Testimonials

I had my third and fourth children with the assistance of the midwives at Pomegranate. It is my experience that birth is the most painful, most joyous and most life changing event ever. The Pomegranate midwives were excellent at guiding my family and I through this adventure. With each pregnancy the midwives were available and responsive to my concerns. I could page at any time or call the office. I never felt like I was any trouble or interrupting. I was concerned that my third baby was going to be born on Christmas, but they assured me there was no issue. I truly felt supported. The midwives were knowledgable and attuned to my concerns. I was properly referred and informed of results in a timely manner. I felt supported. If I think about why this care was right for me, I think about the appointments leading up to the birth – never feeling rushed out the door. I think about how my husband and children were all involved in the births. I think about how I was involved and present for the births. I think about how I was able to have our babies at home and that I always felt safe. I think about how my wishes were supported and respected. I think about my midwife bringing me toast and tea after the birth. It seems so silly and so small, but it symbolizes so much more. I also appreciated the followup appointments once the babies had arrived. I had reliable support. It was what I needed. I feel I have been so lucky to have such excellent birth experts at my side. Thank you ladies! I would go back, in a heartbeat…but five seems crazy, doesn’t it?
