"The morning my contractions started, she was not only available, but shared our excitement and gave us great strength and tranquility as we were able to progress with the labor from home. After several phone calls throughout the morning and early afternoon, we decided to meet at the hospital. I was only there a few short minutes before she arrived, ready to provide support, mentally, emotionally and physically. For the next 9 hours, Stephanie stayed by my side, talking me through the stages of labor, helping me focus, suggesting different positions to provide comfort, and most of all BELIEVING in me"   ~Kate        

"In my 35 years of getting exams your exams are not the norm.  I didn't have any worry this year.  I don't feel the extreme pressure and pain afterward.  I thought pain afterward was normal.  Thank you so much for your patience, calmness and help"  ~Peg

“The most thorough yearly exam I have ever had” ~Susan

“I would have given up breastfeeding if you weren’t there to help me”

"Thank you for giving me confidence in my body and in my abilities.  Thank you for giving me the fantastic birth experience that I'd dreamt of for so long.  You just went so above and beyond for us."  ~Brianna

Baby boy number three was my most perfect birth experience.  When I made the decision to go into the hospital Stephanie was right there with me and she stayed the whole time.  She was taking turns with my husband and mom rubbing my back, she was supportive, encouraging and empowering.  Once he was out he went straight to my chest and stayed there to nurse for 45 minutes!  From my first prenatal appointment to my last postnatal appointment I felt her love and passion for birthing babies.  I feel so blessed that Stephanie was a part of such a special experience for me and my family. ~Katie

Switching to Stephanie for my prenatal care was one of the best decisions I ever made.  She was completely committed to making sure I had the experience I wanted.  During my first visit she went line-by-line through my birth plan and discussed each of my expectations and desires.  I could not have been happier with the care I received before, during, and after my birth experience.  I have continued to see her for my wellness care, and can't imagine seeing anyone else! Her office staff is wonderful as well.  ~Erin

Thank you so much for all the help and support throughout my pregnancy.  You made me feel comfortable about any questions i had and you always answered me right away!  Your friendly personality and amazing smile were so comforting.  Thank you so much for bringing Ivory into my life and making sure she and I were always healthy.  We love our MIDWIFE!!  ~Cassie

I started going to Stephanie a year before I got pregnant and I still see her as my gynecologist.  I never realized how much better it was having a woman until I started going to Stephanie. When I found out I was pregnant  I couldn't wait to start my journey with her for the next nine months.  Every time I had an appointment she was always so caring and answered all my questions.  My son was breech from 30 weeks on and I ended up having a c-section.  She helped me do everything we could to flip him but the stubborn boy wouldn't flip.  She still stood by me the whole time and was the assist during the c-section and ended up working harder than everyone when she had to push him out.  I was so excited to nurse knowing Stephanie was a lactation nurse also.  I am a cosmetologist and had so many clients tell me how much help she was with breastfeeding.  I even asked Stephanie if she could be my son's pediatrician because for two weeks I am pretty sure I called her ten times a day with questions.  My husband and I can't imagine having anyone else with us for our future children.  I don't only look at Stephanie as my provider but also my friend.  You can tell she loves what she does and made my first birth experience one the best things in my life!  ~Alison
