Client Stories


My husband and I have had both of our two beautiful, healthy children at home under the extraordinary care of midwives, Melissa and Geneva.  Melissa spent several hours talking with me before we decided to have our daughter at home back in 2013, outlining every detail of their care and explaining to an expectant mother all the ins and outs of home birth.


If you are considering working with a homebirth midwife in Denver, take the time to meet with the women of Meadowsweet Midwifery. When my husband and I found out I was pregnant with our first baby, we met with a number of local midwives, but when we met with Melissa, Geneva, and Margie we knew our search had come to an end. We were immediately impressed by their knowledge and years of experience, as well as their warmth, kindness, and professionalism.


As a mother who had her first baby in the hospital and second as a home birth, I definitely would recommend home birth!  Melissa is an excellent midwife; from the moment I met her I felt comfortable and well cared for. She is knowledgeable and flexible, and family-oriented. I loved that I could bring my toddler son to my appointments and that he could participate in hearing the heartbeat of his little sister. I also was very impressed by Melissa's knowledge of herbs, as I am always looking to go the natural route when it comes to health and wellness.


After interviewing several midwives, I found Melissa and knew quickly that she was who I wanted on our team for our birth. The others I interviewed seemed to fall into one of two extremes: too go-with-the flow, without exhibiting the ability to lead and educate me well OR too set in a certain approach to birth without demonstrating openness to the opinions and desires I have.  Melissa, however, proved to be trustworthy both to listen to me with sensitivity and to lead me with creativity.


When I was expecting my second child, I decided to investigate home birth as an option (my first was a hospital birth) and was skeptical at first. I interviewed Melissa & Kim and decided to make the leap.


The midwives at Meadowsweet Midwifery are exceptional.  This was my second water birth at home, but my first time with Melissa and not only was she warm, providing high-quality care before and after birth, but she proved to be experienced and extremely competent during a difficult part of my labor.  My son was very tangled up in his extremely short cord and was having trouble during pushing. Melissa and her team knew exactly what to do, acted quickly, and were amazing under pressure.


When we found out that we were going to have another baby we didn't hesitate to call Melissa again.  It was so reassuring and comfortable to have a second pregnancy and birth with her and this time I got to bring up my own baby, something I have always wanted.
