Cindy is an amazing midwife. Her many years of experience guided me through the threshold of becoming a mom two times. She holds the balanced container of spacious loving sweetness and strong grounded safety. I felt supported by her physically, emotionally and spiritually during pregnancy, birth and postpartum. I would definitely recommend her… She was born to be a midwife.

I’ve known Cindy almost 10 years now and have been so grateful for her guidance, care and support with home water births of my 4 th and 5 th children. Cindy is dear to me. As a midwife she is so calm and grounded. She allowed and provided the space for both my husband and older children to be a part of the process that was so heartfelt. My labors and births were fast and I felt so cared for. Prenatal visits with Cindy were a time to really connect in preparation and we are still friends now…8 years later. I felt totally confident in both my homebirths at 42 & 46 years old with Cindy’s experience supporting me. Highly recommend her services.

Cindy is a wonderful midwife. Her experience and calm, competent personality provided me with excellent care when I gave birth to my son in Dec 2020. She answered all my questions thoroughly and knowledgeably and was always there for me from dealing with intense nausea while pregnant to learning how to nurse after my baby was born. I had a successful home birth and felt safe and nurtured during the whole experience. Cindy truly believes in the power of women and their bodies to know what’s best during the birth process. She also knows when to step in and support the process in a competent and efficient manner. I would highly recommend her as a midwife!

Cindy came to my first birth as a supporting midwife, and halfway through my labor she immediately jumped in and supported my laboring body with hers. After a full night of early labor, Cindy’s strong and knowledgeable presence gave me the confidence to push my 9lb 11oz baby out naturally.
Come my second baby, I knew without a doubt I wanted Cindy to be my midwife. Through my entire pregnancy she was available to listen to my stresses and provide potential solutions. I had a retained placenta with my first baby, and we continually problem solved and prepared for the possibility of it happening with my second. Cindy made me feel confident, no matter the outcome, she would take care of me. When labor finally started on the 9th day post due date, Cindy was there when we called. She allowed me to labor in my own way, make as much noise as I needed, and was continually there to check on baby. She let me check my progress myself, and trusted the feedback I was giving her. Cindy delivered my 11lb baby in the tub and when my placenta remained attached the second time, she calmly drove me to the hospital and stayed until I was in recovery.
I recommend Cindy to all my friends and would happily have her deliver a third baby if we are ever pregnant again. The value of her experienced career is immediately apparent, and I believe she is the absolute best at what she does.
Thank you, Cindy, for being an invaluable resource for families in Nevada County!
