We switched from a hospital birth to a home birth at 8 months. Madrona was great. With only a month til baby was due she scheduled enough appts for us to be comfortable with each other and make sure we were ready at home. Her team was wonderful. This was our 5th child and first home birth. We wish we would have known about Madrona with our first child. They were great with our kids, with my husband (with PTSD), and were very easy for me to connect with. Their care and concern were obvious as was their professionalism. Our daughter is 2 months old now and we are still talking about the amazing birth experience we had. Thank you Madrona and team!! We love you!!
Madrona and her team are rockstars! I switched from a hospital birth to a home birth midway through my pregnancy and have never looked back. I wish that I would have begun with her from day one. I always looked forward to my appointments with her. Our visits were informative, comfortable, and filled with care and love. I had a difficult labor as my daughter came out with her head sideways. My labor was very very long and hard, but with Madrona and team with me we had no problems! I believe had I been at a hospital I would have been a definite c-section. I credit Madrona and her team with our wonderful happy birthing experience!
My only regret in working with Madrona was not seeking her out earlier in my pregnancy. Her love for her practice is tangible and she brought such strength, humor, knowledge and compassion to our experience. Our requests along the way were not only honored but celebrated and I was made to feel as if this was a normal and beautiful passage, not a medical condition. The level of post partum care truly surpassed our expectations. I was made to feel safe and empowered during this journey and having Madrona bring our son to us was truly an amazing and spiritual event.
