Linda helped deliver my last baby. She was amazing every step of the way. She has a very gentle and loving approach to mother care, childbirth and after care. It did not matter the nature of my question, she was compassionate and attentive and quick to answer or find the answer/help for me. At her fingertips, she has a great lending library relating to all things pregnancy, birth and newborn care. She even has soothing CD’s to borrow to help ease a tired mama, or a mama in labor! She is also very knowledgeable in holistic approaches, including herbs, vitamins, essential oils, and various position techniques (both for prenatal relief and labor ease). She is well connected with a number of local alternative medical providers – chiropractors, acupuncturists, massage therapists and other midwives. The baby I delivered with her was the fastest and best labor yet – and this was number 5! I would recommend her to anyone, and would definitely use her in the future if there is a baby #6.

Linda served as the doula for my home birth in May of 2011. She was literally a God-send. She ended up being my primary support during the birth and the most calming presence throughout the whole labor. She gave me a whole birth class before my due date that was invaluable to me understanding the process of labor and delivery. She is a wealth of knowledge when it comes to midwifery and most importantly she is one of the most genuinely caring person I have ever met. She also has and great knowledge of the use of essential oils during labor which allowed me to deliver completely drug free. I cannot say enough good things about Linda as a birthing coach. Do not hesitate to meet her and see for yourself!

After a nightmare experience with my first child I was determined to have my next child with a mid-wife. My husband and family were not too happy with this decision given that my first delivery was via cesarean, but with the help of caring and educated mid-wives I was on my to a birth done my way. Linda was half of the amazing duo that cared for me during my pregnancy and in assisting in the delivery of my beautiful baby girl. If I had any questions she was sure to answer them and if she didn’t have an answer right then and there she would find it and call me right way. She was very informative with everything and anything and not pushy and persuasive like many doctors. She always made it clear to me this was my birth and I could have it any way I wanted, and I did. What I liked best is she really got to know me as a client and understood that I don’t take any drugs and I rely on natural remedies and herbs to cure all ailments. If I had a problem she would give me a lot of natural alternatives which helped eliminate the need for me having to see a ob, who would more often than not persuade me to have a hospital birth via cesarean. What made Linda so great was her passion for giving moms the birth experience they want. Being a mid-wife is far from convenient, managed healthcare! This woman sacrificed time, a lot of it, just for me, just so that I could have the birth experience I always wanted. The birth experience I was robbed of the first time around! She stood by my side, she coached me, she massaged me, she put hot packs on me, she even prayed with me through it all. Never did she have to leave and punch out at a time clock because her shift was over. How many doctors do that? Most women don’t even have their doctor deliver their baby, let alone labor with them the whole way through. I am blessed beyond measure to have had her as part of the Amazing Duo who helped delivered my beautiful little girl into the world the way our good Lord intended.
