Although this was my second FMCC birth, this was my first HFBC birth. From beginning to end (and beyond!) Rachel took such intentional care of me, my baby and my husband! She was SO thorough in our appointments - answering questions we didn’t even know we had, and always providing tons of resources that helped us feel very confident going into our first nonmedicated birth. During my labor/delivery, she was proactive, but also receptive and knew when to give space. She truly LISTENED first, and then acted.
They were so accommodating and sweet. They even made personal connections with us.
I’m so grateful that Fort Wayne has this birth center for those who wish to have a different kind of experience than the hospital. Having my first 2 births at the hospital I can truly say the difference is incredible. I had the birth that I had always dreamed of. I left the birth center with my beautiful baby, feeling strong, grateful, empowered and on top of the world. Thank you!
Everyone was so kind and helpful.
Amazing! I loved my experience. I want to have another baby so I can experience it again.
Phenomenal! Listened to me and it went beautifully.
Made me feel safe and empowered during labor.
My midwives were attentive and came to me in whatever position or location I was at. I knew they were available to me but they didn't overstep and allowed me to labor as I wanted with my support team.
I am so grateful for their gentle encouragement, knowledge, and reassurance.
My husband, daughter, and dear friend (also our photographer) walked Dupont Hospital grounds for an hour, had many dance parties, and just had so much fun preparing for our little girl to be born. The fun and excitement continued once back at HFBC! Try doing that in a hospital!
The care immediately after the birth and the next few days was great. I especially appreciated a breastfeeding consultation recommended by the midwives when I was experiencing pain.
The birthing team was great and was a very calming presence during everything. I really couldn't have asked for a better experience. Having my baby here makes me already consider doing it again! Thank you for opening the birthing center. I'm so grateful for FMCC's help with our secondary infertility and being able to actually experience the birthing center after finally conceiving! So thankful for all you do and believe in. ❤️
Our midwife was extremely calm, patient, listened well, explored options as needed with us, and empowered me in a very beautiful way. We loved our experience and were blessed by the midwife’s expertise and confidence that gave us peace through the birthing process. My care and birthing experience brought such healing, strength, and relief to my heart. We are so grateful.
The midwife was so supportive and calm throughout my labor and delivery. I really appreciated her suggestions to help progress labor and coaching me through pushing. She was always near providing support.
Our midwife was incredible. So kind, thoughtful, and truly made me feel like she cared about me, my baby, and my husband.
Our midwife truly went above and beyond to help give us such an incredible birth experience. We had several requests that she went out of her way to make happen for us. We were so beyond happy with how everything turned out and are so thankful!
I felt safe and cared for.
