I had an amazing experience with Cambridge midwives. My midwives were Melanie and Millie and I cannot say enough good things about the care they provided for me.
My postnatal care was superb. They respected my choices. They were always on my side. They were knowledgeable and honest and helped me make informed decisions. Because of immigration costs and no OHIP, they were aware of the financial burden and were always trying to lessen it for me, which I appreciated.
Melanie was exceptional when it came to birthing my son in the comfort of my own home. She made me feel prioritized and came out to check on me multiple times at ridiculously early hours when my prodromal labor started to slowly progress to active labor. Baby was posterior but she helped me use the contractions to turn him. She had a lot of different positions and methods up her sleeve to help him into the perfect position and to help him come out quicker. It was not like the typical birth you might see at the hospital. It was empowering. It was instinctive. At no point ever did I labor in the bed on my back. My baby was born with zero complications and we were both well taken care of after.
My postnatal care was also superb. My midwives seriously went above and beyond. Mille even cleaned a pile of dishes by my sink. They checked up on me quite a few times in those first couple weeks, making sure both Baby and me were doing well. None of us were overlooked not even my husband. They also cared about how my husband was coping with the new changes.
I would definitely recommend Cambridge Midwives. My midwives were personable, extremely competent, experienced, and made me feel safe and comfortable.
