Cindy and Kathy delivered both of our sons (two years apart) and we couldn’t be happier with their services. After extensively researching home births and interviewing both doctors and midwives in our area, we selected Cindy and Kathy. The prenatal care, day of birth, and postnatal care were professional yet caring. I felt that I was being guided by years of wisdom through a process that has happened billions of times in our history. To go into birth without fear, unnecessary medical interventions, probes, needles, catheters, and scalpels is how birth (for most normal/healthy situations) is, in my opinion, meant to occur. One of the most striking differences we saw between Sweet Arrivals and some of the others we interviewed is that their office walls are lined with photos of births, babies, mothers, fathers, toddlers, and from the smiling faces could feel the joy and love. This is a testament to the many satisfied clients for which they care. Sweet Arrivals Midwifery is a tremendous asset to the home birth community.
Cindy and Kathy attended the births of our children and provided extensive pre- and post- natal care. Everything about their service was magnificent. From openly providing information about birth issues early on to embodying competent grace under pressure during the births. They were supportive, calm, professional and inclusive of our whole growing family. Their experience and expertise allowed us to relax into the birth in a safe and natural environment. Our bonds formed with Cindy and Kathy have been lasting and meaningful. We consider them part of our family. ~Raelynn and Matt Noel
Kathy and Cindy are master midwives. They both have an innate understanding of when to be firm and gentle. These women guided me throughout my pregnancy and birth with ease. It was so comforting and such a relief to be under their care. ~Megan McCollam
As a father I felt supported and respected in being a part of the experience. The atmosphere my midwives, Cindy and Kathy, created was quiet, calm, and allayed fears. With their expertise they brought to the prenatals and birth a sense of normalcy and confidence. I felt that what we wanted was respected and they accepted who we were and where we were at. ~John Tecklin
We interviewed a few midwives in town, and it was hard to pick one. They were all so wonderful. Kathy and Cindy made us feel confident. They were very professional, organized and together they felt like a perfect team. And they were. Through my whole pregnancy, labor and postpartum, they were always everything we needed. So happy we got to experience this magical event in our lives with them. Their support and patience during our 22 hour labor was incredible. If I have another baby, they will, for sure be by our side. Thank you so much. I feel like I can’t thank you enough.
We made the best choice!!! ~Maria Fernanda Castañeda Zamora
As an apprentice midwife to Cindy and Kathy, I attended over 50 births and a few hundred prenatal and postpartum visits, assisting and supporting them in their work. They are highly skilled midwives, able to handle anything with compassion and grace. Their continual devotion to their clients and their profession is astounding and I couldn’t have asked for better teachers to set my feet on the path of midwifery.
We absolutely loved Kathy and Cindy! They always made us feel so comfortable and confident in our choices. They never told us what to do or not to do, only gave their thoughts and opinions. I loved that we got to spend so much time with them over the months leading up to the birth. We really got to know them and they really got to know us, which really helped when it came time to deliver our son. We trusted them completely and knew that they really cared about us and knew what they were doing. You can’t typically get all of that when going to a regular doctor. We are so grateful for Kathy and Cindy’s knowledge and advice. Because of them my birthing experience was amazing. They kept me calm and reassured me I could do it when I thought I couldn’t. Giving birth to my son (our first child) at home with just them and my husband was the best experience of my life. I felt safe, strong, comfortable and loved. Plus I loved being able to go from our bathtub to our bed and always be with my baby. I highly recommend doing a home birth with these amazing women as midwives. I could go on for hours about how great they are. I’m so glad I found them and can’t wait to have them again as my midwives! ~Lauren Strade
Cindy and Kathy are amazing midwives! We feel so fortunate to have had them deliver our son. They gave such great prenatal care. Always making me feel comfortable and reassuring me that I was doing good for my babe. They have such calm and positive energy I was always excited for my next visit with them. They gave me the Homebirth experience I imagined. Just them and my husband. Calm, positive, happy energy welcoming our beautiful son into the world. We love Cindy and Kathy and look forward to them being by our side for our next baby! ~Bre Kizere
Cindy and Kathy are extraordinary midwives. Prenatal appointments were long and relaxed, and aside from checking on my health and the baby’s, we also laughed and talked about how I was feeling emotionally throughout the pregnancy. They are both warm, calm, intelligent, and skilled women. I always tell people that I loved having maternity care where I hugged my practitioner goodbye after every appointment! My labor was long – the better part of three days – and ended up as a hospital transfer. Though the experience could have been scary and stressful, I look back on it rather fondly. Cindy was steadfast and radiated tranquility, and it is because of her demeanor that instead of feeling scared or panicked, I felt safe and surrounded with love. (Kathy was on maternity leave at the time.) My midwives stayed with me at the hospital and were my allies there, again providing a quiet comfort when I really needed it. I was so impressed with their patience throughout the labor and talking through decisions with me, and also with their uncanny intuition about what I needed – when to hang back or when I needed them near. We love Sweet Arrivals Midwifery! There is no one I’d rather have by my side. ~Kristy Norrell
Dear potential clients of Cindy and Kathy! These are amazing midwives with tons of experience, whom I LOVE and trust! ~Alison Osborn
Cindy and Kathy were incredible at my labor. Professional, calm, with amazing endurance. They managed to get a nearly 10 pound baby out of me without any tearing or other issues.
Highly recommended! ~Shawna Hein
Sweet Arrivals were Angels. When I asked them to come and deliver my baby, it was only four days before the due date. They came over the next day to start building a relationship. They were open and observant of all they needed to be pertaining to my family, my home, and the Sweet Arrival. They completely respected our beliefs, our needs, and our wishes, giving us the best in care we have ever received. We have returned again and again, each birth improving from the last, further building our trust for these wonderful midwives. They have taught us to trust in our bodies and in the process, and they have truly brought a real presence of Angels into our home. I highly recommend their support and completely trust their judgment. Not only is this a better way to give birth, for both mother and baby, it also saves you money, stress, travel, and needless interventions. Honor your new arrival and go for a Sweet Arrival! ~Amous Lou Biagi
