“AMFC was an incredible resource and support system during my third pregnancy. I had a complex story to follow regarding Prom with my second delivery and a C-section. This team of amazing midwives helped me make an informed choice and I was able to have the VBAC I so desperately hoped for.”

“Adrienne is an excellent and caring midwife who we felt confident in her skills and abilities to handle anything unusual that may come up. We planned a home birth but ended with a C-section and Adrienne was there to advocate for us. She also went above and beyond to be there for our birth on her scheduled day off. We are so thankful to have had her with us.”

“Overall, I had a very positive birth experience. My midwife provided me and my husband good information to make sound choices that were right for us. We also appreciated that even though the second stage of labour was lengthy, Adrienne was calm and supportive the whole time and did not jump ahead to other interventions (vacuum, forceps, C-section) and I was able to have a natural vaginal delivery. I am so grateful to Adrienne and have nothing but positive comments about her, Heather and the whole practice. Thank you!”

“We had such a wonderful birth experience. I had a very quick labour (5.5 hours) and Heather was calm and strong, she guided us through every step. We wanted to have the baby in the hospital (and we did). I was so nice having just the three of us in the room. The aftercare was amazing. Would do it just the same way next time! “

“Adrienne was my midwife and I have nothing but positive things to say about her. I felt very comfortable around her and knew I was in good hands with her. She was very supportive during my home birth. I hope she is available to deliver my next baby too! All of the staff I met at Access were positive ladies. Great environment to bring a new baby into. I recommend their clinic to other expecting moms.”

“The level of care we received from AMFC was superior! I felt as though my mental/emotional and physical health was their number one concern. I felt I could ask any question without feeling judged or pushed aside. The midwives explained everything thoroughly and always had time for our concerns. They were gentle and kind and full of knowledge. Brining our baby in to the world under their care was a beautiful and joyful experience, and I felt very safe. The aftercare we received was outstanding!!! I don’t know what I would have done without them in the first week and I loved that they came to our house rather than me have to take the baby in. I will treasure our experience with Heather and Lorna for always.”

“ Thank you to everyone! I have a beautiful baby boy, my appointments were informative, fun and extremely enjoyable. My delivery was well planned and executed by Misty. Everyone at Access was kind and supportive. If I have another child I’m definitely coming back. Thank you all.”

“Parenthood is an enormous, demanding, and sometimes overwhelming journey. But when the journey starts with a foundation of strength, confidence and care, it can make all the difference. Heather was our midwife for the births of both our children and she has been a big part of this foundation. With her cheerful presence, infinite knowledge and trusting calm nature (both in us and the amazing prenatal – birth process) it has been so easy to feel “at home” with parenthood from the very beginning. Our family has grown with her beside us and I can’t imagine any other person I would want helping us lay these amazing beginnings.”

“I would highly recommend your practice and found all the midwives (Chloe, Misty, Heather x 2) to be amazingly caring and supportive. I had a fantastic birth experience that redeemed childbirth for me after a very difficult first labour/pregnancy. Thank you!”

“We were exceptionally pleased with the shared care midwife team, and I had the birthing experience beyond what I could have hoped for. Science, common sense, and delightful women led to a pregnancy and homebirth that was just wonderful. Thanks for the support and exceptional care, Heather, Chloe and Misty!”

“A wonderful experience at Access Midwifery for both our first and second child. Such an incredible group of women who care for women and their families! I can’t think of a more special and appropriate way to welcome our children to the world. An incredibly skilled, warm, professional and approachable group. Thank you!”

“I will always remember and appreciate the staff at Access Midwifery, You made it an amazingly easy and comfortable pregnancy, labour and delivery. My hubby sings your praises as well. Thank you so much for helping me bring this gorgeous little girl into the world.”

This is a huge, heartfelt thank you for giving us the birth experiences that we wanted for both (our children). Marylou, your cheerful voice on the phone and always fitting me in was always appreciated. Heather and Lorna, you are always so calm and although you both seemed to get my wierd “Sunday” aches and pains, you always reassured me and made me feel able and strong. Jody, you are so kind and lovely, we wish you luck with your on the job training. Heather, your acute observation of every little thing and your wealth of knowledge always enabled me to make decisions and to stay in a place of trust. You have all taken the time to explain and extended patience no matter what time of day it was or how many births were on the go. I cannot imagine how people give birth without you guys — you should all be proud!…With love and admiration

Thank you so much for helping us bring Sophie into the world. Your knowledge, expertise and caring were so comforting to us all through our pregnancy, delivery and post-partum. Sophie is our precious girl and we can’t thank you enough.

Thank you all so much for everything you have done for our family! The birth of our third child was such a beautiful time for us and your kindness helped to make it so smooth! Heather and Jody, thank you for being with Claude and I the day Elise was born. Your warm, calm presence was exactly perfect for me! You are greatly appreciated and will be remembered as a very important part of Elise’s beginning.

Thank you for helping give me the birth experience I was hoping for. Your kindness and compassion throughout this whole experience has really meant the the world to both Denise and myself. You guys are the BEST!

Tracy & Jolina

I would like to extend my gratitude in making the delivery of Jolina so beautiful and stress free for Tracy. It was a magical experience for me and has opened my eyes to a new career – becoming a doula. I have always loved watching babies being born – especially my five grandchildren – this delivery was even more special. Thank you for bringing Jolina into the world and helping bring Tracy and I even closer – you are my heroes!

“Thanks” does not seem adequate to express how I feel. How do you say “thanks” for bringing my child into the world? I am so grateful for Evan’s safe arrival due to your knowledge; I trusted you all the way and it made a wonderful difference! I felt empowered and supported in decisions made. Thank you for being a great teacher to the children before and at the hospital – they will always remember!

It was so good to know there was always someone to call whenever I had concerns. You were always friendly and welcoming whenever I visited your clinic.

One of the best decisions of my life is having you as our midwives. So many times, people told me, as reassurance, “Oh millions of women have gone through this…” And though that may be true, none were ever or will ever be, exactly as it was for me, with you. I wish you could know how may memories and images, words and moments, all of the aching beauty and exquisite pain that I’m trying to fit into these two small words…Thank you.

Thank you so much for helping us through the birth of our wonderful second daughter. You made a stressful situation much easier, with your sense of humour, knowledge and calm. We are so grateful to you both.

We are so grateful for the care we received from you both. Throughout the pregnancy to the delivery of our baby and into the post-natal and newborn care that we received from you, we always felt well supported and cared for. Ed and I were always able to ask you any questions we had and we felt empowered to make decisions about everything, every step of the way. Lorna, your labour and delivery support got me (and Ed – and Kamryn!) through the most memorable and wonderful day of my life – thank you.

Melanie, Ed & Baby Kamryn

My birth experience was so tremendously positive. I credit it completely to the sensitivity and outstanding abilities of my midwives. This is how birth should be.

Thank you. Thank you. Thank you a million times over, for such a wonderful birth experience. I appreciate so much the care you took in involving Adera in the birth of her brother. You really made my first home birth an amazingly easy one for all of us. Thank you.

Thank you so much for all your help and support. You were all wonderful and we are so happy you could share our birthing experience. Heather N [student midwife] we wish you the best in finishing your program. You will make an excellent midwife. I hope we get to see you all again for baby number 2.

We cannot thank you both enough. You both helped make Darion’s and my pregnancy/labour the most amazing experience possible. We truly know if it was not for the both of you, I would not have had such a positive time. It is so wonderful to see two women who are not only good at their jobs but who put so much are into what they do. Thank you again and we look forward to keeping in touch.
