Alma Midwifery is one of the finest group of women I have had the pleasure of working with. Under Laura Erickson's leadership, this service shines brightly in a town full of midwives. For empowered mothers who understand birth is work and are excited to be an active participant, there is no better place. I should know, I started out at Andaluz. As my midwife there put it, her "soft time frames" were not a good match, so halfway to term I started looking again. I wanted responsive care; a provider who would be attentive and compassionate. Alma offered me all of that and more than I could have expected!

My birth team consisted of Laura and Angela. Words can't convey how incredibly helpful they were before, during and after the birth. They communicated clearly their expectations of me, and fulfilled every one of mine for them. Laura and Angela were on time for every appointment and of my many prenatal appointments, only one was rescheduled due to a birth! (I didn't experience any punctuality while with Andaluz). Throughout my pregnancy I felt wholly the Alma philosophy which seems to integrate professionalism with service of love.

Even though there were other births before and after mine, their attentiveness during the birth and postpartum care was on point, never missing a beat. They were happy and caring, even though I could tell they were tired. I have already recommended one friend, and will happily recommend many more.

I have worked at several birth centers, and LOVE working at alma. It is a beautiful space and I feel like we are able to care for women like we would want to be cared for. Lots of individualized attention and care, lots of patience and listening. We have a great respect for babies. We are able to offer both home and hosptial birth.

There are four midwives here, along with some midwife interns and apprentices. My labor team was composed of the wonderful midwife I hired, plus one intern and one apprentice. My prenatal and postnatal visits were a joy, as these ladies really cared and gave great advice. I got three brains to pick for the price of one!

I opted for a home birth but I must mention that the birthing center here is beautiful. There are three birthing suites, all with big tubs, big beds, etc.

My husband and I took our childbirthing classes right here.

The office staff was always friendly and helpful. The insurance billing was prompt.

I gave birth naturally at home. My midwives brought a birthing tub. Labor wasn't easy but I feel so good about my birthing experience. I went into it trusting the care I was getting. It was such a relief to feel supported.

Pros: Professional yet personable, relaxed but not granola

This birth center is beautiful and the midwives there truly care about women and helping to empower them on their birth journey. Not only that but they have a great many classes to choose from, like pre-natal yoga and infant massage, as well as offering pre-natal and post-natal massage for you.
