Top notch. I received care from Access Midwifery for both my children. I couldn’t be happier with my experience during labour and birth.  The midwives are super reliable and supportive.

The office administrator is lovely!  She was a great help in connecting me with the people who could answer my questions and for scheduling and rescheduling my appointments.

We were thrilled regarding our postpartum care – so supported – gave us a lot of confidence we were doing a good job.

Working with Aisia and Adrienne was a wonderful experience.  I felt they supported myself and my family through the process.  There were both very patient with my busy son and involved him in the appointments. Their styles of care are well matched and we felt confident in each of their abilities/experience to bring our baby in to the world.  We loved working with a midwife again and would highly recommend this outstanding personal level of care to any expecting families.

All of you ladies are amazing! We never felt rushed and always felt respected. Adrienne blew us away.  We felt very comfortable and reassured by her.

I had such a positive experience at AMFC.  Heather W. was extremely knowledgeable and professional.  She made such an effort to make our toddler feel apart of the experience.  The atmosphere in the clinic is welcoming and warm.

Thank you to our midwives for providing attentive, passionate, professional, whole-hearted care to myself, Rose and our family during, after and before Rose’s birth!

My experience with Aisia and Adrienne as well as Misty and Heather was amazing! I felt supported and it made the pregnancy journey easier as well as the preparations for the birth more relaxing.  Thank you for the amazing work you do!

Women are amazing.  The strength we have is remarkable.  The ability to care for one another when we need it most is indescribable.  My midwife taught me this.  I couldn’t have done this without her.  She was there for me 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  With her patience, understanding and gentle voice, she guided me through my emotional hurricane with grace.  She gave me the gift of safety and security during some of the hardest times.  She provided me with care I could have never imagined I’d ever need with strength and reassurance.  Midwives are angels.  I am so grateful to have had mine.  Thank you Adrienne Carruthers!

Thank you for including my partner in the visits.  I really appreciated the midwives taking the time to answer both my and my partner’s questions.  I appreciated responses to questions by phone, email and in person.  Katrina is great!

* * * *

Switching to Access halfway through my pregnancy was the best choice for my family. Everyone at Access was so warm and welcoming. Katrina was so warm and friendly every visit.  She put me at ease to call or email whenever I needed something. Heather was absolutely wonderful. She ensured everything was what I wanted and empowered me to make my choices with confidence. We feel truly blessed to have Heather as part of our birth story.

I would recommend AMFC to anyone looking for prenatal care.

I had a great experience with Access Midwifery.  I felt that my midwife cared about me and my preferences, while offering suggestions and options as circumstances changed.  I felt supported through my whole pregnancy, delivery and post partum and looked forward to my appointments.  I will be back with my second!

I will miss you guys so much! I’ve really enjoyed my care with all 3 of my boys!  I am constantly recommending you to friends and family!

My care prenatal and post with Access was amazing. Misty and Heather N. were so wonderful and communicated well during my time in their care.  My birth was easy and good and both midwives, OB and nurses cared so well for me during the time. I am sad  I can’t stay with Access forever!

* * * *

With AMFC it felt like I have my mother with me. They treated me like a family member every single moment of my delivery and my pregnancy.  My special thank you to Lorna, Heather Wood and Hilary.

I always felt very welcome, supported and encouraged in the appointments or any phone calls.  Wonderful support!! I have left Access beyond grateful for the service and care me and my family received.  We are so fortunate to have wonderful, professional midwives like Chloe and Adrienne in our community.

Care was excellent for both my babies.  All midwives who worked with me were knowledgeable, kind and thorough!

Marianne S.

Katrina was wonderful! She was always helpful, welcome and accessible.  Always a pleasure during my visits.

* * * *

The care provided by Lorna during my birth and labour was excellent.  I felt completely safe and confided in her hands. I believe this was the reason I had such a positive experience.  Everyone at the office is fantastic.  Thank you for making my pregnancy (which was at times difficult) such a great time for me and my family.

I had such a good experience, couldn’t have asked for better.

We are so grateful for the excellent care we received from Chloe and Adrienne throughout our prenatal-postnatal care.  Adrienne was a rock for us during and after a very long and difficult birth and labour.  I truly believe that were it not for her the experience would have been much more traumatic for myself and my partner.  She was ever calm, cool and collected while also being emotionally supportive and relatable – an impressive combination.  Her skills and professionalism were evident in every encounter we had with her.

Heather is an incredible midwife and we are so grateful for having her support, care and expertise.  We felt so supported by everyone at Access Midwifery and will highly recommend your clinic. Heather’s skills in the hospital helped our whole family in our stay from start to finish. Katrina was wonderful – very helpful and welcoming.

What a positive health care experience.  I would recommend Access Midwifery to any expecting woman.  My team (Heather, Misty, Chloe and Andrea) took no shortcuts in my care and attention. I felt that not only my physical health and the baby’s health were a top priority, but also my mental health and happiness which was a refreshing surprise.  Access has a strong sense of community and I am thrilled to be connected with this talented group.

The birth was a wonderful experience and we are so glad we came upon Access Midwifery to make it exactly what it was.  We felt very comfortable and safe through the pregnancy, knowing we had people with such expertise and genuine hear to support us.  Thank you so much!

The whole team at AMFC is just awesome and I always loved going to my appointments. All 4 of my children were born through the clinic and I’ve always received the most amazing care. I recommend the clinic to people all the time!

* * * *

We had such an “easy” pregnancy and a “laid back” but well informed lead up to our birth. Needless to say we had a very complicated birth (26 hour early, 8 hour active, 2 hour pushing and epidural and spinal and c-section under general anesthetic).  We got through it thanks to your great birth team.  Even more so our midwives’ care extended beyond labour and birth to a very high needs and colicky baby with reflux.  No matter what the issues, we always felt so supported and informed by our midwife team!  So glad we went this route!  Thank you Misty, Heather N and Chloe!

The care at Access is top notch!  I would not hesitate to recommend to anyone getting a midwife.  The experience is personal, thorough and informative!

* * * *

An extremely positive experience overall and would suggest that any expectant family consider this an option – knowledgeable, supportive and caring support!

* * * *

Thank you to all for such wonderful care.  Your office is very welcoming and I recommend you to friends and family.

I enjoyed and loved my care at AMFC and would come back if I had another baby even though my birth didn’t go as planned.  Adrienne and Heather W. were there and helping me along with the best of their ability and were very supportive.  I would recommend them in a heartbeat.

From the first visit to the last, I always felt like I was in good care.  I was able to deliver my beautiful baby girl in the comfort of my own home, just as I had wished and I will be forever grateful to Adrienne, Heather and Heidi.

Adrienne was amazing from the first meeting when I was very nervous about having a different midwife for the first time out of three babies.  The final visit is always the worst, I never want to leave the care of AMFC because they become like family.  Adrienne was extremely supportive on everything I did and didn’t want and was so helpful with everything postpartum.  Thank you to everyone at AMFC for everything and being so supportive and always so happy.

We could not be happier with the care we received at Access Midwifery.  The midwives we worked with were extremely knowledgeable, approachable and helpful.  We felt supported at each prenatal visit, the hospital and during labour and delivery.  Our midwives kept us informed through out the pregnancy; discussing the possible outcome as things unfolded.  They respected our wish and ensure were heard when dealing with other care practitioners. Overall, our experience with Access was wonderful. We feel blessed to have had their assistance in bringing out daughter into the world.  Big thank you!

Katrina always greeted me with a smile and was ever so patient with me when I had to call to get my appointment times again. I had the experience of receiving amazing care from Heather N., Misty and Andrea.  All three of these caring midwives displayed great love and support through my pregnancy, second c-section and postpartum care. I think you all for your tremendous work along with your guidance and advice in helping to deliver my two beautiful boys into this world.

I cannot say enough good things about Access Midwifery and my midwife team. They made the whole pregnancy, labour, birth and post partum process comfortable and low stress.  I felt so well supported by midwife, particularly during the birth, when she really showed off her skills! She was such a calming influence, yet she was in charge of my care the whole time.  I felt like I had the best advocate by my side.  The home visits during the postpartum period were the cherry on top of my care.  By the end my partner and I felt sad to lose a care provider and as strong, supportive friend.

* * * *

Warm, welcoming environment, very supportive and responsive.  I cannot say enough praise and thanks for the amazing team of midwives at AMFC. They supported and informed me in a warm, genuine non-biased manner.  It was a huge goal of mine to have a natural delivery, a feat none of my sisters were able to do for various reasons and I believe working with midwives empowered me to be able to do that. Following my birth I felt a newfound respect for myself and all women who give birth and such gratitude to my team for helping make it possible.  I’ll be back with it’s time for baby Hinds 2. It was like I had a nurse, doctor. and friends through out my pregnancy, delivery and postnatal.  I will miss them all!

Always felt 100% supported.  There was never any judgment and I felt you all really got to know me, my needs, limits, attitude, strengths, and challenges and supported me so well by using this knowledge. Thank you so much for everything.  You are such a great team and complement each other very well. I have recommended you many times!
