While living in Portland, my husband and I wanted to find a comfortable and trusting environment to welcome our son into this world. After exploring the options the metro area had to offer and being fairly unimpressed, we decided to expand our search. We instantly knew after meeting Susie that Aurora Midwifery was what we were looking for. Susie and her team welcome you into a homey and spotless farmhouse taking the time to give you honest and natural care. On the big day, Brooke came to our home to check on us and give me piece of mind in the early stages of labor. Later, when the contractions were getting strong, she gave me the best advice, “say goodbye to that contraction, you will never see it again”.
We were so grateful when we arrived at the birth center to see familiar, smiling faces and have a comfortable room with a beautiful tub ready. Women I trusted surrounded me, and even during the stressful moments, I felt at ease to focus on my body and our son. They are wonderful individuals who work flawlessly together, communicating with each other to provide the best support and encouragement. Lindsay kept my husband calm with her smiles, and the three women coached me through different positions to help my son come out healthy and naturally. The trust and confidence that we built with Susie made his birth a wonderful experience to remember and share with our son. My husband and I feel very lucky to have found such an amazing place, not to mention being pampered with fresh garden fixings after the birth, so we could focus on the precious new moments with our son.
We are truly thankful for finding such a wonderful place filled with amazing people. We had very high expectations; Aurora Midwifery far exceeded all of them, truly a birthing dream come true! Merci!
