​“Knowing you were the one there helping my daughter gave me a lot of peace and I just wanted you to know how much I appreciate you and the love you’ve shown my daughter.”

“I can’t thank you enough for the gift of this pregnancy
and delivery experience. I wish every woman could have the
genuine care, support, comfort, freedom, wisdom and
knowledge that you provided.” Dee

“These two are amazing and made my home birth such an excellent experience from start to finish. If you’re looking for a provider who really gets to know you and is a skilled and supportive partner through the whole experience, Bethel and Noa are it! I’m with them now for number two on the way and never for a second would have considered going anywhere else.”

– Jessica & Jeremiah McClung
