Testimonials


I had the absolute pleasure and blessing of having Janice and Bridget as my midwives through my first pregnancy, and it was so SO great! They were so informative of what stages I was going through and what to expect in my pregnancy, kind, caring, and so compassionate in all they do. Janice was there the evening of my delivery at Peace Arch and earlier in the day for my pre labor checking up on me at home. I couldn’t and wouldn’t even want to imagine my pregnancy and delivery without these women, they truly are amazing at what they do and I am forever thankful for all of their hard work in helping me bring my beautiful baby girl into the world.

Mary Rebecca (7lbs 5oz) was born to us early morning on September 20th, 2016. Our third child and another successful home birth! Janice Robinson delivered our second and third babies at home, and we couldn’t have been more thrilled with her and Bridget and the care and attention and dedication they showed us! I will be coming back to them once I get pregnant with my fourth!

Thank you Janice for being with us every step of the way in welcoming our little Antonio. Especially when things didn’t quite go as planned we were so grateful to have you advocating and guiding us to make the best decisions for our little guy. Our hearts burst with gratitude!

Janice was my midwife and we decided to do a home birth. Along the whole pregnancy process Janice answered all my questions and helped settle any fears I had around birth. I took her hypnobirthing class which also really helped me and my husband prepare for the birth of our baby.

We did a home water birth. I laboured for five hours it was fast and incredibly intense. Bridget and Janice were both there as well as my husband and my doula. Janice was such a source of peace for me. When it came time to push I wanted to quit and didn’t feel like I could do it, I was scared and exhausted Janice’s words were so encouraging, she helped me believe I could do it and 23 minutes later our beautiful baby boy came into the world.

I know I could not have gotten through it without Janice and am so grateful for her care.
