I have received an exceptional care during my pregnancy and labour!! What girls did for me was beyond professional and magic! Even though I had to go to the hospital in the end, they staid with me the entire process and it felt really safe, relaxed and under control. They did a fantastic job creating the aura of love, compassion and care!!! They are the best!

What if something goes wrong?

My husband and I switched to TVM at around 30 weeks into the pregnancy. Before then we had been seeing an OB and didn't have any complaints but weren't feeling cared for as individuals. Everything was very routine. In our consultation with Paula my first question was how they handled things in case something doesn't go according to plan. She assured us that it probably wouldn't happen, but that they have a great relationship with the hospital and are equipped to handle it. We decided to use TVM and the birth center. On my Labor Day, I was anxious about not knowing what was happening, so although they had checked me earlier in the day and I wasn't ready they agreed to meet me in the evening to check again. It turned out I was ready to check in. I am grateful they were willing to see me although the contractions weren't regular before I went in. Hannah was great throughout the delivery - very competent, the environment peaceful. I delivered and was ready for my postpartum snuggling and nap, but my placenta didn't detach and I began to lose blood. Just as Paula had assured us, the team knew exactly how to handle the emergency - with a plan in place, they called EMTs after their own resources were unable to resolve the problem. They communicated well with the hospital, and I was in surgery as quickly as possible. After I left, the team stayed and made sure my husband and daughter were getting what they needed - including calling their new mom network to get donated breastmilk for her. Although it was 4 in the morning they achieved the milk for her and helped my husband get her to the hospital to meet me. I feel the midwives are well educated and they were able to stay calm in the chaos after my delivery, ensuring we had everything we needed. They also stayed in touch during the time I was in the hospital and for the six weeks after while I was in their care. I highly recommend TVM if you are looking for an alternative to hospital birth and you need peace of mind that you will be well cared for.

We have had both of our children at the Treasure Valley Midwives and plan to continue using them. With our first child, the midwives siphoned meconium out of her lungs and we had no complications. I was so relieved to not have been in a hospital and potentially separated from my baby for days. With our second child, we had wonderful support and care from the very beginning when we were having trouble getting pregnant. I was always at peace because I knew I would be surrounded by competent and caring people that I felt close with for my prenatal care, labor, delivery and postnatal care. I looked forward to all of my appointments because I knew I would have ample time to discuss any questions or concerns about my pregnancy. I was also able to rest my mind, knowing that the midwives would educate and give me resources for anything I missed. I can't say enough about this incredible all-encompassing model of care and highly recommend them.

two successful VBAC births!

My first child was born in a hospital. I wanted a natural child birth, but ended up with every intervention possible. After an infection, painful and long recovery, and inability to nurse, i was totally defeated. When i became pregnant with my second child, i thought i HAD to have another c section. I was sooo happy to find Treasure Valley Midwives. They alleviated all my fears, and i had a wonderful birth experience at the birth center. When i was expecting my third child, there was no question whether or not i would go back. My third baby was born at home, and the experience was beautiful. Thank you treasure valley midwives!!!

Grateful to them for the experience

My second birth felt like my first. It had been 5 years since my first child was born and with my second child I wanted to do things different. I wanted the people involved in my pregnancy and birth to make it as significant and special as I wanted it to be. I love my first child dearly but during my prenatal care and her birth I felt completely detached. I felt detached because my doctor visits were very routine, short, and made me feel like I was just another pregnant lady. My doctor had sure seen many and never appeared as thrilled to see me as the midwives were. With Treasure Valley Midwives I felt special, educated, empowered, and competent about my second child's birth. They took the time to really get to know how I felt each time I visited and provided me with valuable resources that I did not have under the care of a regular physician. I may have been given the information in pamphlets by the physician's office but the midwives took time to explain what each handout they provided was about. This made the information more meaningful. When my son's birth day came the midwives showed up with smiles. Even though I doubted myself at times I never saw doubt in their eyes. They trusted my body to do what it naturally needed to do. Their sense of trust and the support of my husband gave me confidence to have the experience I was looking for. Thank you to all of you ladies that I came into contact with during this special time; the midwives, the lactation specialist, and Danielle up front who always greeted us with an enthusiastic smile.

I met Paula when I was 7 months pregnant with my second child. I had a Cesarian Section with my first and very much wanted a VBAC as natural birth was very important to me. Paula educated me and paved the road to the most wonderful experience of my life, the process of birthing my second daughter naturally. TVM will always have a special place in my heart.

A dream come true birth experience

After having a pretty typical hospital experience with my son, I decided I wanted to do things differently with my second pregnancy. After a lot of research and prayer, I found Treasure Valley Midwives and knew it was meant to be. From the prenatal care appointments to the birth itself, I always felt comfortable and trusting in the care of the midwives. I would never do birth any other way! I love TVM!!

Loved our birth experience with TVM!

All of the midwives and their staff are very professional, yet you feel like they are part of your circle of friends. We loved spending time with them and getting to know them at our pre-natal appointments. They supported our decisions during pregnancy and our birth. We felt cared for during the postpartum months and would not trade our experience for anything. We can't wait to have our next child with TVM!

Amazing

Choosing TVM was the best decision we have ever made. I felt absolutley in control of everything about my care. They did their best to make sure my husband and I were informed of all our options the entire time. Took their time at our appointments,and treated us with respect. They didnt even seem to care that I was ALWAYS late for my appts lol. I only wish I was having more babies so I could go back and do it again. Thank you for all you do.

Wonderfully compassionate and professional care!

I couldn't have been more pleased with the care I received from the wonderful women at TVM! They always took the time to answer my questions and made sure I was always fully informed about and in charge of my care. All of the women there are very passionate about the natural process of pregnancy and childbirth and their compassionate care absolutely reflects that! I had a long labor, and while friends and family members began to question my birth plans; the wonderful midwives at TVM never lost hope in my bodies' ability to naturally birth my son. After much support and encouragement from TVM, my son was born at home, happy and healthy, and it was the greatest experience of my life. I am forever grateful for all of the wonderful ladies with Treasure Valley Midwives for helping me bring my son into the world in a safe, loving and peaceful environment. I highly recommend them to anyone considering an out of hospital birth; they have found a great balance between professional and compassionate, individualized care that will enhance the already amazing journey to motherhood, whether it is your first or your 5th time around!

SO impressed by TVM care!

When we first learned we were pregnant we interviewed several midwives in the area. As soon as we met with Paula and Theresa at TVM, we knew we had found the place to have our baby. Their prenatal care was gentle and very thorough. We always felt that our questions and needs were being met. The birth of our daughter at their center was nothing short of amazing. The knowledge and compassion of our midwife was excellent. And the post-partum/baby care was equally great. I recommend TVM to anyone who is even remotely considering an out of hospital birth.

Fabulous labor and natural birth process was fantastic!

This was my second home birth and it was fabulous! I don't know why anyone would ever choose a hospital! It is so relaxing and so wonderful to be in your own space, sleep in your own bed, labor on your body's natural schedule instead of a doctors. All of the women (midwives and trainees) were fantastic and I'm forever grateful to them all for their kindness, gentleness and love. Thank you!!!

TVM is SO much better than hospital birth!!

I highly recommend using TVM! I used TVM for the birth of my second daughter and I have every intention going back to them for all of my future births. With my first daughter I did the whole hospital experience and it was awful. I would never go to the hospital to give birth again, unless necessary. With TVM I felt safe and cared for and all the midwives took so much time making sure I felt comfortable and secure with their facilities.

Compassionate, professional care from wonderful women!

My husband and I switched to Treasure Valley Midwives from my general doctor when I was already 6 months pregnant. We weren't comfortable with how impersonal the whole process felt with our general doctor and I didn't feel listened to. From our first meeting with TVM they were compassionate, professional, and not pushy in any way. We ended up having the best experience and our daughter’s birth is one of the most meaningful moments in our relationship. I can't recommend working with these midwives highly enough!

Safe home delivery made possible by TVM midwives

I had 2 of my 3 kids there. The experience was great. I loved being in the comfort of my own home. The only thing that is a bummer is the fact that they increased prices making it unaffordable for us if I was to have more children. I also wished they had let me choose one midwife and stick with her. I didn't like having different woman at each appt and not knowing who would be at my birth. In the end I have healthy happy children safely delivered at home. I will always recommend them to anyone asking.

Totally satisfying birth experience

I birthed my first baby at the hospital and my second baby at Treasure Valley Midwives Birth Center. The difference was like night and day and I can't say enough good things about my experience at the Birth Center. At the hospital, things were very fast paced, machines beeped in my ear and I was given unnecessary medications to "speed up" my labor. At the birth center, I had 4 experienced women present at my birth who were respectful and quiet while I labored. They assisted me and encouraged me each step of the way. They also believed in me and knew that I was capable of having a natural labor without drugs. This experience created a lasting beautiful memory for our family.

Unique and totally fulfilling birth experience; thank you TVM!

After 2 relatively easy hospital births, I decided for my 3rd baby to go with a midwife instead. I just have to say that all of the women at Treasure Valley Midwives made our experience truly one of a kind. They are tender, kind, soft spoken and truly believe that natural birth is the best way to have a baby. They treat you as if you are a friend when you are a patient of theirs. One of the best things about Treasure Valley Midwives is that they make sure you know YOU are in control of your birth experience. They let you choose what kind of testing you can do, but never pressure you either way. I'm just amazed at the level of aftercare I received after birthing my son at home. They came to my house the day after birth...then followed up once a week for several weeks after. You would have NEVER received that kind of care from an OB. I am so excited that one of them is now a Certified Nurse Midwife, so I can also see them for my yearly women's wellness checks and get the prescriptions that I need. Homebirth with a midwife is the BEST way to have a baby!!!!

I loved being in charge of my birth experience

I used TVM for the birth of my second child. My first was an unmedicated hospital birth with a Nurse Midwife, and was not a negative experience, but I knew that I wanted something different this time. We wanted to be in charge of our birth experience, rather than having to negotiate around hospital policies to get the birth we wanted. One of the reasons I chose TVM is the postpartum care they provide--at your home the day after the birth and one week after the birth, then at the birth center at 2, 4, and 6 weeks postpartum. It is so helpful, especially if you have any nursing difficulties, questions, or just to get confirmation that everything is going well. Originally, my husband and I had planned a birth center birth, but as we did more research, we decided that a homebirth was more what we were after. So, we switched to homebirth at 35 weeks! TVM couldn't have been more flexible or supportive of our decision and helped make sure we were prepared on a relatively short schedule. Our birth was gentle, peaceful, and beautiful. Paula and Jill, the midwives who attended our birth, were quietly supportive throughout the process, and let me direct the entire birth. I would highly recommend TVM to any low-risk mom who is looking for a care provider who will support her decisions and respect her ability to give birth in her own way.

I'm so glad we went with Treasure Valley Midwives!

All the staff there were kind and personable. My prenatal care was top-notch and well informed. They explained everything they did and asked for my input every step of the way. They were concerned with physical as well as emotional well-being. My daughter's birth was exactly what I wanted, and even when things didn't go totally smoothly, Paula, Jen, and Theresa were calm and reassuring. With some gentle re-positioning, my daughter was born healthy and perfect. I felt completely safe and well-cared for. I know I would have felt defensive at a hospital, feeling that I had to fight off interventions. At the birth center I was comfortable. I'm so glad we decided to go there. The post-natal home visits were wonderful. Theresa was so helpful and kind. It was so nice not to have to drive anywhere at first. I'll definitely go back to Treasure Valley Midwives for my next pregnancy.

Outstanding delivery thanks to TVM

Everything I expected and so MUCH more!! I am a mother of four children. After having had my first two babies in a hospital setting I was left feeling very dissatisfied with the hospital/doctor way of delivering a baby. So when my husband and I were pregnant with our third we decided to seek out a more natural, holistic and loving type of prenatal/delivery care. I met with the midwives at Treasure Valley Midwives and I was so very impressed by the midwives, the assistants and the staff. All of the women at Treasure Valley Midwives are knowledgeable, kind, helpful and professional. I always felt safe and comfortable under their care. We opted to deliver our baby at home. (We interviewed and hired a doula as well to support me during labor.) I am someone who labors long and the midwives hung in there with me for hours and hours, I was so grateful. They put me at ease and continually checked my and my unborn baby's vitals. I cannot put into words what it meant to me to deliver my baby girl naturally, in the comfort of our home, surrounded by a team of supportive women. It was truly one of the greatest experiences of my life. When we became pregnant with baby number four, there was NO question in our minds, we immediately went back to Treasure Valley Midwives and we had a repeat wonderful experience. I also see TVM for my annual exams and female care. I have never received this level of care from any other medical care provider, they are awesome. Also, I implore you to read between lines of the negative reviewers. I can't help but think they contributed to their own poor experience. Because, I am on year four of my care through TVM and I have nothing but good to say. Just interview them and see for yourself. I love these women! 🙂

TVM care is second to none; thanks for an awesome experience!

I came to Treasure Valley Midwives with my second pregnancy, after my first-born's hospital birth left me feeling upset and unimportant to the hospital staff & my OB. TVM was the opposite of that experience from the very beginning. I felt listened to, cared for, and actually treated as an individual, unique, intelligent woman, which was not the case with my previous hospital birth. The relaxed environment of the birth center was comfortable and welcoming. My midwives came to our home to check the progress of my labor, and cared for me and the baby after we moved to the birth center for delivery. The after-care home visits were very special, too, and I was always given prompt, well-informed answers any time I called their office, even if they were CLOSED! We were treated especially kindly after a misunderstanding regarding payment/billing, which was complicated in our case, and in my opinion that sets Treasure Valley Midwives light-years ahead of other medical establishments. I just can't say enough good things about the incredible group of women at TVM!

I wouldn't give birth anywhere else!

I cannot imagine giving birth anywhere else. What an amazing group of talented, SMART, caring, gentle women. I am shocked that there is a negative review on here. The moment you walk into the birthing center you know this is a safe place. A place where you and your baby will be taken care of emotionally and physically. I have given birth twice in less than 2 years at TVM...The first baby was a marathon 29 hour labor; my second baby came less than 45 minutes after I arrived at the center! For both experiences, the midwives were amazing and CALM. Safety is the number one concern. They monitor the mom and baby every step of the way, and are trained to stay with you the whole time. The best part is the moment of birth--one midwife takes care of mom and watches for issues; the second takes care of and assess the newborn. The midwives are trained to do the APGAR test while the baby stays in mom's arms, so your newborn gets the vital skin-to-skin contact for their first hour of life. When it comes time to perform the in depth newborn assessment, the midwives ask permission--"may I take your baby and examine him?" It's such a small detail but it's so empowering and respectful. If you and your baby are healthy, there is no need to pause with concern for safety with TVM--you and your baby will receive the best of care.

"Plan B" birth experience made great by TVM care

My daughter arrived at 36 weeks and 2 days and so we were not, by law, able to deliver at Treasure Valley Midwives. But that didn't stop us from having our TV midwives at the hospital with us from beginning to end, and to have the birth we would have had at the birthing center. Our main midwife called her favorite doctor at the hospital and asked him to attend, which he did. She and a midwife assistant sat with us the whole time, and only at the moment of delivery did the doctor step in. Maybe it was the right combination of a great, flexible attending hospital nurse and a hands-off doctor along with the presence of our midwives, but we truly had the birth of our dreams even if it was in a bit of a colder, more clinical setting. The midwives' care from start to finish of our 8+ months with them (plus 6-weeks follow-up care) was simply the best. We're due with our second child later this year and would not think of going anywhere else. And yes, TVM is very hospital friendly and they don't take chances, if they suspect there is any issue, they will move you to the hospital. They are around the corner from St. Luke's, so rest assured you will be in good hands no matter what surprises might arise.

My initial anxiety melted away due to wonderful support

My labor and birth was just as we wished it. As a first time mom, I was feeling more and more anxious as our due date approached. We didn't feel as though we had been able to establish a strong rapport with any of the midwives at TVM because we saw a different person almost every appointment. We were worried that this lack of rapport was going to impact our birth. We were also concerned about the skill level of the midwives (two of the main midwives required additional supervision during the pushing phase). Remembering these worries now makes me a bit embarrassed. As soon as the midwives, Kathleen and student Kristin, entered our house (home birth), my mind was at ease. They spent a solid 12 hours with me, more than enough time to build intense trust. They were incredibly adaptable i.e. crawling on the furniture, so I wouldn't have to move, squeezing into small spaces to assist. For those several hours, they were like part of our family. When the baby did arrive, there were some medical complications and the midwives dealt with it in a very professional and considerate manner. We are so pleased with our decision to stick it out with TVM. They gave us the birth of our dreams. My advice- If you are feeling like you’re not making the connection you had originally planned on, ride it out- it is worth it!

I, like many others, have continued to find reasons to go see these wonderful, amazing women! Wow, so caring and gentle and TRUSTWORTHY. These women take the time to really get to know you and your family and they always made sure everyone was involved... My husband got in the birthing tub! I wouldn't change anything about them or the center. I love Treasure Valley Midwives and highly recommend them to anyone wanting a beautiful birth experience. Truly amazing!

I would not change one thing about my birth experience at Treasure Valley Midwives. The prenatal care was great. They give you undivided attention with plenty of time allotted for the appointment, and there was never a wait. Contrasted to my friend who went with an ob (we were pregnant at the same time) - she waited 30 to 45 minutes every appt just to see her dr for 5 minutes. My labor was amazing. They were encouraging, present but not hovering, open to what I needed. The postnatal care was amazing too - support not only with my brand new baby, but also with my emotional well-being. I liked that I got to get to know all the staff. Even if you go to an ob, you only get that dr if they happen to be on call. If they're not, you get someone you may not have ever met. The birth of my first child was personal, cherished, and empowering - thank you Treasure Valley Midwives.
