    We loved our experience at MMC. Our first was born there about a year ago. When we started with MMC, they were in their old building. The new building, by comparison, is very clean and professional. I have seen complaints that they seem to have focused on appearance at the expense of care but that isn't my experience at all. Let's be honest here - appearance means a lot. Having a clean modern facility will make patients and families feel more confident and safe in the care they are receiving. I know it made my parents feel a lot better about my choice. I appreciate that they are very risk averse - and they were extremely open and honest with us about their transfer policies. We knew that if they didn't think they could handle us, they would transfer us. We also knew that if that happened it would be an emotional experience. I'm glad we didn't have to transfer, but based on the level communication I believe that they would have been very supportive through that process. Most of the classes were very helpful (I wasn't a huge fan of the breastfeeding class - especially in hindsight). We labored for quite a long time at home before coming in to MMC. Even though we probably should have labored at home longer, the midwife supported my husband's request to come in and be monitored. Ultimately my labor started to stall, so they employed several homeopathic techniques to try and boost things. They even brought in a doula, at their own expense, to provide support for us when the midwife had to turn her attention to a momma who went in to active labor in the room next door. We worked through two shifts of midwives. They communicated perfectly with one another, were super supportive, and they each called the day after the birth to follow up. The post natal support was great. I was having trouble with nursing and at my 1 week visit I was encouraged (gasp) to supplement with formula and to not feel guilty about it. Those words of encouragement were the most important thing I needed. I wish I would have had the forethought (or afterthought for that matter) to bring in a thank you gift for all the amazing support we received but in those first few months I got totally wrapped up in my new little family. Regardless of my thanklessness, the staff have always been sweet and supportive and it's pretty clear that they love being with families through this process. We are planning on having second little one and are excited to go through this experience at MMC again.

    I am currently in my 41st week of pregnancy and hoping to still be able to deliver at MMC prior to the 42 week cutoff. Since I have not yet delivered I can't speak to the laboring process at MMC (yet). At the initial orientation class I wasn't quite sure if it would be a good fit, some of the things mentioned in their original presentation were things I disagreed with or felt uncomfortable about (they are an extremely low risk provider and that made me nervous about possibly having to transfer). I decided to work with them anyway after having an 8 week appointment with a regular OBGYN that felt very.. cold and clinical.. and I couldn't be happier about my decision. Every appointment they have shown genuine interest in me and my pregnancy and respected my wishes and preferences. They require several classes--particularly for first time moms--and I have found all of them to be packed with useful information. My only wish there is that they would have been more clear that those were paid for separately (and included the cost) from the beginning, as I suppose I was under the impression they would be wrapped up in the overall bill, and the cost isn't *particularly* cheap (not that I regret them, just wish it would have been made more obvious from the start on price). However, even my SO, whom I had to basically drag to every class, always walked out in a great mood feeling like he had learned a TON. He still goes around to his coworkers and tells them all sorts of cool facts about birth, breastfeeding, pregnancy, etc., which is awesome! They definitely cater to both parties in their classes. Some highlights: They are more than willing to use a fetoscope rather than a Doppler at the appointments They are genuinely interested in your health--they do a nutritional review of everything you consume over the course of a week and make suggestions accordingly, talk about exercise, water-intake, etc. A lot of resources for prenatal, postpartum, and infant care. I'm talking chiropractic, lactation support, meetup groups, etc. It's nice to feel part of a community of support rather than the "business" feeling of a typical doctor. Are there a few things they could probably work on? Sure. But I would gladly go through MMC if I ever had any subsequent pregnancies and feel that their standard of care is very high and very personable. Strongly recommend!

    I recently had my baby at Mountain Midwifery, and I loved the care I received there from the start. My husband and I wanted to use a birth center and midwives because we wanted to avoid medical interventions as much as possible. The classes that they offer and resources were exactly what we were looking for. It was empowering and left us with the knowledge and ability to go into the birthing process and care of our newborn with certainty and no apprehension about what we would go through. I feel that the prenatal care was interested, sincere and non-invasive. We have even been complimented by our pediatrician for the care that we have given our daughter - which was what we learned at MMC. Big thanks to the whole team!! Love, Sarah J & Jim

    Based on the expectations set by Mountain Midwifery, my husband and I felt that MMC was the perfect place for my prenatal care and delivery of our daughter. Unfortunately for us, many of these expectations were not met and most unmet expectations occurred during labor/ delivery when it's too late to select a different birth environment. MMC sets the expectation that when you go into labor your contractions will eventually become 3 minutes apart, lasting for 1 minute, for 1 hour. They also provide instructions to call the midwife and head to the birth center because this pattern means your labor is progressing and delivery is near. Since I had never experienced labor I trusted this information however throughout my entire labor my contractions never matched this pattern. Had it not been for an appointment we had scheduled at MMC while I was in labor, I probably would not have made it there for the delivery. These expectations and instructions caused me to misinterpret how far along I actually was in labor. MMC sets the expectation that the midwife will not be with you at all times during stage 2 of labor so it is best to have support person(s) or a doula. MMC sets the expectation that a midwife WILL be present during the pushing stage of labor. I was 8cm dilated when I arrived at MMC. Most of my time spent there, I was in the pushing stage of labor, which lasted almost 4 hours. During this time the midwife left several times and one time close to an hour. I feel like if I had better coaching and professional support through the pushing stage, it may not have lasted for so long. After the delivery the midwife left again this time for close to two hours. It would have helped so much if the midwife let us know when she was leaving and when she would be returning and also kept us informed about the progress we were making. If she needed to leave to eat then another midwife should have been called in. Based on the expectations set by MMC I thought I would be ok support wise with my husband, sister, and the MMC midwife. This was not the case. My husband and sister were taking care of me 100% of the time and barely had enough time between the two of them to get water, eat, or go to the bathroom. While my husband and sister were very supportive and great for stages 1 and 2, you will need someone who knows labor and can coach you through the pushing stage because the midwife minimally coaches. Because of the amount of blood I lost after delivery I was shivering uncontrollably. I felt like the nurse was not making any attempts to warm me up. We had to ask her for additional blankets and heating pads. When the heating pads were placed on my body they were not monitored carefully. Had my sister not discovered they were in too close of contact with my skin and that my skin was extremely hot and red I probably would have had severe burns. MMC sets the expectation that they will provide a relaxing, quiet, home environment less like a hospital. These expectations were not met. During my labor, there were these horribly bright fluorescent lights pouring into the room from the hallway. Also most of the time my door was left wide open. The midwife's phone was also going off what seemed like non-stop during labor. The midwife and nurse almost immediately begin cleaning and changing the water in the birth tub. This is a very noisy process and was disturbing right after delivery. MMC doesn’t provide good options if you are encountering breastfeeding issues. My baby and I had a lot of difficulties with a proper latch early on. None of the lactation consultants who were listed in the packet of info provided by MMC were available to help me. One person said she is not seeing anyone right now for lactation support. Another said she has a full time job doing something else and doesn't know why MMC still has her on the list. The ones who were available couldn't see me for several days.
