Meet Our Midwives

Words from our clients…

Heidi BardenhagenRyan and I were continually amazed and pleased by the stellar level of care, attention, and support we received during my pregnancy and labor. We felt loved and cared for at ever step. Ryan was nervous at first about not having the baby at a hospital, but now he’s a staunch supporter of birthing centers! Thank you so much for everything!Heidi and Greta with Jackie and Katy
