"Thank you for the care you have given me through out my pregnancy and now that our baby is here, I honestly don't know how I could have done it without you. The compassion and patience you showed me will never be forgotten. I left our appointments feeling empowered and supported. The passion you and your colleagues have for what you do is felt by the women you see and it's extraordinary! I'm just sorry we won't get to see you for a while."
"I feel very privileged to have had the good luck of getting you as my midwife. You helped me immensely on a journey that I began with little knowledge of what I needed to make the experience truly my own. It was a joy to meet someone that understood my “different” way of viewing the world and how we all fit together. It allowed me to be myself and therefore taste and feel every moment and “hiccup” along the way. Even though our plan got derailed a few times, I am still very pleased with the outcome. We looked to you to help guide our reactions. Your calmness helped us remain that way as well."
"Thank you for your caring support through both of our pregnancies and births. Thank you especially for all the time you spent with us in CHEO after the birth of our daughter. We would have been lost without you."
"You know there will never be enough words to thank you for helping bring our two children into the world safely, but here it goes... Thank you for helping me make the transition to motherhood as gracefully as I was able to. You made it safe and supported me to find a way to be OK in myself. Thank you for being on board to non-intervention and for helping me find me “head in the sand” approach. Thank you for your authenticity and becoming more than a care provider. Sharing laughs and the way you have so generously of your time makes you a friend. Our family is so so very lucky we found you – you helped make us! With so much love and respect, we'll miss seeing you regularly!"
"We cannot thank you enough! You've supported us in ways that you can't even understand throughout this journey and it is SO appreciated. Knowing we had you a phone call away for non judgemental (and EXPERT!) advice at anytime has given us so much comfort and confidence in our ability to handle anything, it's been such a gift. Although we may not be the easiest clients, we hope we're lucky enough to call you our midwife again in the near future! Until then, all the best."
"It's been such a pleasure getting to know you these past 9 months. Thank you for the excellent prenatal and postpartum care you provided and of course for bringing our little girl into the world. As silly as it sounds, I really appreciate you giving me permission (so to speak) to feel emotional even though I felt I had no valid reason – it was very liberating for me. Your patience and kindness with our other girls has won them over and has not gone unnoticed. They will be sad that our appointments have come to an end. From the bottom of my heart, thanks!"
"I cannot being to thank you enough for bringing our little girl into the world. Throughout all our weeks together, you always took the time to answer all my questions (oh my little notebook), explain everything clearly, make me feel at ease and supported. Your jokes always made me laugh and you made me feel confident going into the delivery. You made sure our daughter arrived safely and took care of me as well. We are so grateful for your support, hard work and guidance. We often say how wonderful you are and how we are so thankful to have had you by our side. Thank you so much for all you've done for our family."
"Thank you does not begin to express how grateful we are to have had you as our midwife for the birth of you first child. Throughout my pregnancy, you were always a calming and reassuring presence, helping inform us on our journey. We couldn't have asked for a more suited midwife for our “surprise” home birth. We wouldn't have had it any other way, and are so fortunate to have had you there. We are forever grateful and will sincerely miss you."
