I have had two homebirths with CMS and have had a wonderful experience each time! These women are professional and caring, and have a great understanding of nutrition and health for mommy and baby. They are always available and able to answer questions that arise. Each birth is attended by a midwife, who has attended close to 1000 births, as well as a monitrice, who is highly competent and well-trained. There is a contract you sign when agreeing to their services, and it spells out very clearly the terms of payment as well as what may make you ineligible for their services. The fee is exceptional!!-- as explained to me, it is kept to what an insurance deductible would be for a hospital birth so that as many women as possible can afford their care. For 9 months of prenatal care, consultation, and nutritional advice that should last a lifetime, being on call 24/7, and being present in your home for as long as the birth may take, the fee is nominal! The professionalism, friendliness, and genuine care from all who work at CMS cannot be beat!

I had my first child with CMS two years ago. Planned on a homebirth but due to complications I had to have him at the hospital. A midwife was with me for 36 hours straight and this was worth the price alone. These women are knowledgeable, kind and are more concerned with the health of you and your child than they are with profits and rushing the birthing process to fill beds. As for the reviewers that stated the midwives "worship trees", I believe this to be an ignorant statement and would dare to call those reviewers ethnocentric (also, fees and costs are up front at the first visit, CMS isn't trying to trick anyone here). Going to a midwife is nothing like going through the standard process of birthing in our society and just because something is different doesn't make it wrong or weird. I am currently two months pregnant and will be using CMS again and couldn't be more excited. I would highly recommend these ladies and hope more people begin to see the benefits midwives have to offer.
I had three of my four children with community midwifery. Best experience I could have asked for ALL the midwifes were caring and extremely professional! I would highly recommend them!
