Birth Stories & Testimonials
Comments from Colleagues:
Wendy, I have watched you grow from a passionate teen mentor to doula, childbirth educator and now midwife. You possess the personal qualities that make the world better and the lives of the women and families you touch. I have watched you work your magic and empower women and therefore their families. Your intellect, caring and passion for what you do and who you do it with gives me peace and pride. I’m honored to be considered your friend.Barbara Hotelling
Wendy brings incredible enthusiasm to all that surrounds birth.Helen Callans
I was thinking of Wendy the other day and it occurred to me…wow, I am so proud of her like I knew her before she became a midwife—how cool!Shawn Spry

A truly comprehensive, professional, and friendly establishment.
“9 Short Months is a truly comprehensive, professional, and friendly establishment. Our son is now 8 month old, he is extremely healthy, happy and alert. I, as his mom, I am the same! We had a less-than-ideal hospital birth with our daughter and desired a better experience. We found Wendy and her amazing team and we knew we hit a home run! Every visit was a joy and when it came time for birth, it was a triumphant experience. We were so pleased and thankful.”
Compassion and Professionalism
“Thank you so much for your compassion and professionalism. I would love to have you be next to me for my next child birth, too, IF there’s any”
We will never forget the help.
“Thank you again for the great support! You were wonderful and we will never forget the help and perfect job you have done.”
My tower of strength during the birth of my daughter.
“Wendy was my tower of strength during the birth of my daughter. I couldn’t have done it without her. I was in labor for 24 hours at home and her ‘head squeezes’ were the best pain relief there is. When things took a different turn and I had to go into hospital and have a c.section her knowledge and calmness made the whole experience much less scary as I knew what to expect. She was my voice when I was too tired and dazed to be able to use my own. I would highly recommend her to anyone.”
Literally got me through my delivery.
“Without your shirt and arm to grab onto, it would have been that much more difficult to get through labor. You had the ability to literally get me through my delivery. You’re warm welcoming smile, your patience with me and my children, the kindness you showed me when I had questions… obviously without your assistance, help, and kindness my birth would have been so much different.”
Created the perfect, peaceful, safe sanctuary in which to birth my son.
“Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful. Wendy helped me create the perfect, peaceful, safe sanctuary in which to birth my son. She was a quiet encourager, a silent strength, her words were precise, and I could not have imagined having this experience without her.”
Positive and Reassuring.
“Wendy was an absolutely fantastic person to have as a part of my birth team. Through 36 hours of labor, she never left my side. I had a planned homebirth and ended up going to the hospital for an emergency c-section. Wendy was positive and reassuring the whole time. I don’t know what I would have done without her! =)”
