Carole is hands down the best. She supported me throughout my entire pregnancy and I was able to have a safe, unmedicated natural birth to a healthy baby. I would recommend her to anyone and everyone. I was incredibly selective when I chose my midwife and I couldn’t be happier. She is wonderful, patient, caring and attentive. More healthcare providers should be as empathic and caring.
