I wanted to let you wonderful women know you are always on my mind and in my heart, I will forever be grateful for each of you. I have gained so much insight and wisdom from each one of you. Thank you for walking with me through this wonderful and crazy journey I have taken into motherhood. Thank you for allowing me to be open and raw during one of the most vulnerable times of my life. Thank you for being honest with me, even when I hoped you would say I didn’t need to push and I could just wait a moment ;). I am sure you have all heard this numerous times before, but I don’t think it could be said enough. Thank you! The birth of my two wonderful kiddos has been the most empowering experience and I know you women have aided in that. Can’t wait to go through it all again and I am optimistic it will be with you again. I hope everyone’s thanksgiving was filled with as much warmth and love as you all deserve.
My lap after nap, filled with so much love and innocence.
Love and hugs,
Brooke and Sunshine are amazing, and we are so thrilled that we chose them as our midwifery team! Prenatal visits with them are relaxed and informative, and we always felt they had enough time for all our questions and concerns. They tailored their care to exactly what we wanted and needed from them, and made me feel very safe which was important to me since this was my first pregnancy. It is so nice to go to prenatal visits and work with someone that is genuinely glad to see you and truly cares about how you’re doing – I have seldom been able to say that about any OB I’ve seen in the past! Throughout our labor and birth they provided excellent and skilled care, and even when my labor threw us some curve-balls and wasn’t progressing quickly, they provided all the information and guidance we needed so that my husband and I could ultimately make the decisions that felt right for us – and finally we did get the beautiful water birth at home that we’d been dreaming of all those months. We are eternally grateful to them for helping us get there – and allowing us to welcome our son into the world in the best way we could!
All our love,

We picked Brooke and Sunshine to be our midwives because we felt that they made a good team, had years of experience, and were respected within the birthing community. We also liked that Brooke was a Certified Nurse Midwife, and had hospital experience. Plus, they always made us feel at ease with questions we had, and they made sure we were really prepared for the delivery. And, when a bump did arise in the labor and delivery process (and with us it seemed to both times) Brooke and Sunshine handled it with stunning expertise and at the same time remained calm and we felt their good energy. Bottom line, they gave us choice and let us take the lead on how we wanted things to go. I felt free to listen to my own body. We are very happy to report we’ve had two happy healthy baby boys at home.
– Thank you Brooke and Sunshine!
