"We are a military family and heard about the amazing women at San Diego Midwife from many recommendations. I delivered my third baby with them at Babies in Bloom while my husband was deployed. They provided excellent care, addressed any and all questions/concerns, went above and beyond to provide emotional support needed to deliver a baby without your spouse, allowed me to have the birth plan I wanted, and helped me achieve it. Delivering at Babies in Bloom (in a tub!) felt as comfortable as if I were laboring at home. I could not have asked for a better prenatal and birth experience.
When Paula noted that I was due for a well woman exam and told me that they could do it for me, I, of course, said yes. I was open to this because of the positive experiences I had with our prenatal and postpartum exams, but it wasn't until I actually experienced it that I realized how low our standards can be when it comes to having our bodies examined by health professionals. Any time Haley or Paula would have to touch my body, whether it be my arm or my pelvic area, they would ask permission to touch me. It was then I realized I had NEVER been asked that by my doctors in the past. I didn't know how much it would make a difference in my comfort level, and overall experience. The well woman visit was comprehensive and covered all the standard things you expect at a PCP or OB-GYN's office, but went above and beyond. They explained everything they were doing and why. They asked me questions about my health, lifestyle, and mood. Most importantly, they LISTENED and HEARD me and my concerns. I learned more in my one well woman visit about my body than I ever have in all my years of having well woman exams performed by OB-GYNs. -JL
