"I had my first baby with a different practice. I loved all the Drs I met, but when it was time to give birth, I had an on call Dr that I was very uncomfortable with. He was rude and actually told me I was not going into labor (when I actually was) I had never met him before and he made my birthing experience horrible. A friend recommended this practice. I didn't want a male Dr because I was uncomfortable with it and so I decided to go through the midwife route. I absolutely love all the Midwives here in this practice! I have met all of them but I wanted to give props especially to Cassie Applegate! She is amazing, caring and actually takes the time to hear my concerns. She helped deliver
my second child. She was there for the whole thing, which was totally different from my first birth where the Dr was there only for the last 5 minutes of the hour and a half pushing i did. Even though I had some complications after the birth, Cassie made me feel comfortable and safe. She's approachable and really cares about her patients."

"She [Karen Hashemi] was an amazing Midwife. I had not met her before & she was so patient & just really understood what I wanted. I truly couldn't have delivered Lucy without her."

Comment Card from Littleton delivery

Sarah was essential in me still having a vaginal delivery after transferring care from a birth center. She explained everything that was going on thoroughly & never made me feel pressured about the amount of time my labor was taking. Thank you! -Shantel 7/22/2015

"I love these women!! Cassie delivered my second baby 2 months ago and did a wonderful job!!!"

"We had to be transferred to their care from Mountain Midwifery for pre-eclampsia. We met with 3 different midwives and loved them all! Nancy did our delivery and was willing to work around our request even though we had just met her. I would definitely recommend them and will use them in the future myself!"

Jennifer R. (Yelp Review)

"Sarah, We wanted to thank you for giving us the labor and birth we had been hoping for! Your calm presence and coaching make a huge difference. I felt very supported and safe and free to do what I needed to. We really appreciated being able to bring our daughter into the world in such a calm (although fast!) and supportive way. Thank you for being an amazing midwife!

I cannot express enough my appreciation for the unbelievable care & dedication these women gave me during my labor & delivery. For them, I'm sure, it was another day on the job. For me & my family, this day will be remembered a lifetime. Thank you. -Nicole 7/22/15

"Sarah, Thank you for making the birth of our daughter a positive experience. I think I even got a couple of laughs in during labor."

Sarah was incredible to work with, her calm demeanor with my wife got us through the birth of Hazel. Also, all supporting nurses, Betsy, and others were excellent as well. This was a great experience!!! -Jordan 8/1/15
