Only a few months after birthing my first son in the hospital, I heard Cosette speak at a local health fair. I immediately knew I wanted her to attend my next child’s birth. When I got pregnant again I met with her individually and had an intense feeling of connection and “rightness” being around her. During my pregnancy and birth, I experienced nothing but honesty, compassion, and love from the Willowsong team. My second son’s birth was truly a perfect birth for me, and I felt respected, trusted, and supported throughout the labor and birth.
Not only did I receive amazing prenatal, birth, and postpartum care, but Willowsong led me to my Village. I have developed amazing relationships with so many Willowsong women and families; I can honestly say that joining the Willowsong community was life-changing. I am excited for the growth of this clinic and community. The women of Des Moines are incredibly lucky to have this group of midwives.
