A little background: our first child was almost 11 lbs at birth, so with my second pregnancy, I was getting a lot of questions and pressure for extra tests in Illinois where we had been living before moving to LA.

My husband and I have a tiny daughter named Eleanor. We were all fortunate enough to begin this journey on the best possible note, in the extraordinary hands (both literally and figuratively) of the UCLA midwives.

I want to thank you for helping bring my little angel into this world. I had such a great experience with you Susan during my delivery.

We loved the care we received from the midwife group throughout my pregnancy. But Ann deserves special mention for her assistance during labor. She was fantastic, supportive, instructive and really made the natural birth experience possible.

I was only able to see the midwives for the end of my pregnancy and birth, but I had a fabulous experience. Their philosophy was exactly what I was looking for - laid back and non-invasive. I was able to have the birth experience I wanted, and I am confident that was due in part to being under their care, I am looking forward to working with them for my next pregnancy!

I would recommend the UCLA midwives to anyone who is pursuing a safe and fulfilling birthing experience.

We are so glad we chose to entrust both of our sons' pregnancies and deliveries to UCLA's midwives, and will always be grateful to them.

It's...Jerry, Amy and 'lil Timmy...we're all doing great! We just had our first pediatrician visit this afternoon and everything is looking terrific. Timmy gained back the weight he lost and is now at 8 lb 8 oz; his birth weight was 8 lb 7 oz.
