I had the good fortune of having Cindi for a midwife in 2004. Her knowledge, caring, and calm demeanor made me feel at ease even though it was my first birth. She was compassionate and always spent as much time with my husband and I as we needed during prenatal appointments, answering all of our questions and hearing our concerns. My birth experience was wonderful and I felt confident and supported the entire time. After my son’s birth Cindi was amazing through my initial difficulty in nursing, going above and beyond to make sure we succeeded. Because I had such a powerful birth experience, I became passionate about helping other women feel more confident and informed about birth choices and to obtain the births they wanted, so I became a childbirth educator. I can honestly say that having Cindi as a midwife changed my life!
