"From the first email inquiring about services before I was even pregnant, to the 6 week postpartum visit, Charlie and Barefoot Birth provided exceptional care. I had experience with an ob/ gyn practice and also a midwife practice that delivered at a hospital with my first pregnancy and knew that I wanted something different for baby number 2. I choose to have a home birth and after researching options through my insurance and online I found Barefoot Birth. The midwifery care provided throughout my entire pregnancy by Charlie, Erica, and Jenn was second to none. Every visit was personal and they cared about my overall health and wellbeing. Charlie always had an answer for any question or concern brought up. She possesses a quiet strength in her knowledge and expertise. She doesn't tell you what to do, she discusses the options and helps you decide. The barefoot birth team also includes siblings in the visits and my daughter was able to help listen to her brother's heartbeat and assist during the visits.
When my little guy decided to make his grand entrance, Charlie was the perfect person to deliver him. While in labor we discovered that my son was breech. Charlie's calm demeanor, knowledge and expertise calmed my husband and me down immediately. After calling for EMS she knew exactly what to do to deliver him safely and managed to do so before the paramedics arrived. We are so thankful for Charlie and the Barefoot Birth team and blessed that they were our midwives. Charlie will always hold a special place in our hearts as our wonderful midwife and friend. If I ever have another baby Charlie will be one of the first people to find out! "
