"I never had to worry about being judged by Mandy for a decision I made or a question I had, and was always completely honest with her. When I asked the OB about placenta consumption, she looked at me like I had two heads and said, “Please don’t do that.” When I asked Mandy, she said, “Sure!” and guided me through the different ways to do it and how she could help. Of course, she was also honest with me, and I knew she had my baby’s best interest and mine at heart." Read more
"From the first phone call with our prospective midwife, I felt like I was just talking with a new friend. Throughout my pregnancy, she truly was a thoughtful, caring friend who also happened to be a birth expert. I felt really confident and at ease when labor came. Never once did I feel like I needed to defend myself or fight for a certain birth plan, because we trusted our midwife and she trusted us, too. " Read More

My husband, and I met with her in her new office. Mandy was so welcoming and warm. What really sold us was how genuine and real she was.
