Two weeks ago my husband and I had the opportunity to have our 4th child, a daughter, at the Birth Center. I knew before she was born I wanted a water birth to bring her into the world. Never having one before, I was nervous. The greatest part about the Birth center, was the relationships formed between the midwives, additional staff, and myself. I never felt like a 'patient', I never felt like a 'client', I never felt rushed. The women working there made every visit and appointment comfortable, and informative. They always listened to my questions, took time to get to know me, and about my life. They let me be myself. I craved that after having 3 children already. They truly MADE the experience for me. After my other 3 children were born, I remember thinking, 'I don't want to do that again...' but the water birth experience I had, with the guidance and care of Amie and her assistants left me confident in myself, as a mom, wife, and woman. I have no negative thoughts, feelings, or memories about the Birth of my daughter. I love remembering every moment of it, and the role each of the midwives played in my pregnancy, and how my husband was able to be there, having an active role in the delivery, helping me, and his ability to have an instant bond with our daughter was one of those memories I will forever cherish. I think he enjoys telling her birth story as much as I do! I'm actually kind of sad I'm not pregnant any longer because I truly enjoyed meeting with them monthly, and weekly. From the first time I took a tour, to seeing my daughter's eyes staring at me under the water, and her literally leaving me speechless, I love my daughter's birth story, it is my favorite story, and it was made possible here!
