Had my second child at Birthways. First was induced at hospital. Midwives took the time to answer any questions. They helped me try everything natural to get labor started. They were out of the way for the whole labor. Monitoring was not nearly as intrusive as the hospital. Delivered in tub. Would have liked to stay at the center a little longer than 4 hours after delivering. They were terrific with postpartum support!

Love this place!!!!
I love the environment and care I receive when I go to Birthways Birth Center. I found them after a bad experience with a local doctor and I will never look back!!

Going above and beyond!
I can't express how impressed I was with all the staff! Always genuinely friendly, helpful, understanding, and fun! My husband has to pull me away from appointments. I have always found thm to be professional and competent. We need more midwives and they could use Birthways as an example!

We only met with Christina once during our initial visit. We learned shortly after we lost our baby. She was so kind to make the necessary phone calls the an OB and offered us her support. She was very kind and we hope to return to Birthways for a future pregnancy.

I have been seeing the midwives at Birthways since my first 8 week appointment, and I have received EXCELLENT care and support throughout my pregnancy. I am due in 2 weeks and am planning a home birth. From day 1 they have been very helpful, informative, and kind. I am a healthcare provider myself, and I have seen the medical model of pregnancy and childbirth care in practice. I have to say that so far, the midwife model used at Birthways is far superior!

What a wonderful experience!
I had my first baby girl at Birthways few days ago and it was a wonderful experience! Eva was born in a peaceful and loving environment, surrounded by people who offered huge support and care. Thank you Christina, all the midwives and assistants for your hard work and the fantastic service you have given us.

Birthways delivered my beautiful baby girl!
Birthways takes care of their patients physically and emotionally. They give you the whole package because they genuinely care about you as a person. I was extremely pleased with my expirience and plan to continue to see them for my gynelogical care. I loved all the midwifes and office staff- extremely sweet people! Keep it up ladies!

Birthways soon to help birth my fifth baby.
Christina Holmes, of Birthways, has delivered four of our babies and will assist in the delivery of our fifth baby this fall. She has been a very comforting and efficient midwife. We plan to move out of state in the next year, and I will greatly miss having Christina deliver my babies! (Yes, we plan to have more!) My children will attest to how special of a person she has been in their lives - they call her the "heartbeat lady" with love. Keep up the good work, Christina and Birthways!

I recently gave birth to my first child at Birthways, and I am so grateful I had the opportunity to do this in a safe, loving, environment where I felt I was in control. It was a great comfort to have a midwife available by phone, anytime. And yes, I did call in the middle of the night, more than once. They also understand birth isn't the end of the job -- so much support offered for postpartum care. The sense of security I felt while giving birth seems to have followed me home :)

So at Ease!
Currently I am in the 3rd trimester and have been with Birthways since the end of my 1st. Every part of my experience has been wonderful! I find the midwives to be very knowledgable and helpful and the office staff has always been pleasant. I would definitely refer my friends and family to come without any hesitation. I am thankful that we have such great and caring women here in Sarasota!

The support and practical wisdom my husband and I found at Birthways transformed my pregnancy, labor and delivery. My water broke at 36 weeks and we were required to go to Sarasota Memorial Hospital. Even then our midwife came with us. Though four weeks early, Katherine was born perfectly healthy. I can't help but wonder how much of her health can be attributed to Birthways' focus on nutrition, education and holistic care.

I absolutely love the staff at Birthways! My first baby was born at the hospital and I had a very negative experience. I was blessed to find Christina when I was pregnant the second time. The entire pregnancy and homebirth was a positive experience for my whole family. Six weeks ago, my third baby was born in the birthing tub at Birthways into a calm and relaxing environment.Christina and her staff are knowledgeable and welcoming and the birth center is a very comfortable place to be.

I am 35 weeks and have been coming to Birthways since my first prenatal visit. Everyone is so nice and helpful. You can tell they really care, and that they love what they do. They provide a level of personal attention and care that you just can't find in a doctor's office. The whole experience has been 100% Amazing!!!

Best experience so far!
I am 32 weeks and switching to Birthways for care. They spent more time with me at my first visit than all my visits with my doctor combined!

Best Birthing Experience Ever
My husband and I are on our 10th child. In the state we were living home births were frowned upon. In Florida I was so happy to see that we had a choice. We were both very nervous to have a home birth, but very excited also. We gave birth to our son in December of 2010. Birthways family was there with us every step of the way. We are now expecting and are using Birthways again. I am so excited to be apart of the Birthways family once more.

Luv the Birthing Center already!
I cannot even explain how much I enjoyed my first visit at the Birthing Center. I luved it and want to have every baby here! I keep spreading the good news. Kristen was so sweet and took more then enough time talking with my husband and I. Why would anyone ever go to a hospital?! The Birthing Center is the best!

In love with my choosing of birthways
I found birthways online and attended one of their monday night open houses. My mom being leary of my husband & I's decision wanted to check it out & ask questions. In doing this she was more acceptable of the idea. We had a tour & actually got to meet the midwife & get to know her from the get go. All the staff is passionate, helpful & sweet. They geniunely care for you and the baby. Its been such a relief knowing im in the right place to have my baby.

Knowledgeable and time for you!
These women have been practicing midwifery for years. I went for my first appointment at the beginning of February after feeling rushed and unimportant at the doctor’s office. I wanted something new and natural birth/water birth was always something I took interest in. Birthways made time for me. Time to talk about anything I needed in DETAIL with plenty of information provided to me through conversation, paperwork, and other resources. #BEAUTIFUL

a great option!
staff/midwifes were caring & presented themselves professionally and took time to answer all of our questions. The orientation video was good, and I am a big supporter of natural birth. On the down side, I was told that I would receive a call the next day about blood work and never received call. I'm not sure if there was miscommunication, but that is one way that this facility can improve.

Great 1st Appt.
I was messed up on the time, so accidentally arrived late :( They moved the other lady after me, up to go before us. Thought that was respectful of her time, but I had my toddler with me, so I was nervous about keeping him there for 2 hours. Jen at the front desk put cartoons on for him and he felt right at home. Christina was worth the wait. Deff off to a great start and feel very comfortable there!

Your Baby Will Thank You
It is so wonderful to be able to walk into your appointment and feel like family. Your not just another procedure but rather a friend, I absolutely love that the staff knows who I am and what is going on though out my whole pregnancy without having to thumb through my file. I strongly believe Birthways is the best place to introduce your little one into the world and I wouldn't have it any other way.

I know where my child will be born
After touring the facility and meeting the midwife,Christina Holmes, it really made me feel at ease.She answered every question every concern that a mother can have! Knowledgeable and very personal,she put my fears to rest. The Birthing center is set up in such a calming environment which is exactly what my family needs as we welcome our little one into the world!

Such a great experience. Had my first appointment and was so impressed with everyone and everything. This is my first time at a birthing center and I am so excited for future appointments. The staff is very knowledgable and makes you and anyone with you feel comfortable and welcome. If you are searching for a place, it is really worth a glance!

Christina and her team deliver individualized, attentive care for expecting families. She takes all of the time needed and then some to answer all questions and to educate. We are so happy to be at Birthways for our prenatal care!

I have had 4 kids and all very precipitous labors. My last experience at the hospital was awful and I am done with those. This is my first experience with a midwife and so far, I love it! Looking forward to finally doing this the RIGHT way!

I just had my first visit with Kristen & Misty and they were both wonderful. This is my first pregnancy in the care of midwives rather than an OB and what a difference. They spent time with me, without making me feel rushed, welcomed my questions, answered my questions and emphasized that they are here for me at any time for any concerns I may have. Wonderful experience!

This was such a pleasant experience! They really made me and my boyfriend feel at home and welcome, and they took top-notch care of me. I'm looking forward to having my child here!

Everyone at Birthways is very warm, caring, and professional. Midwife Christina Holmes is very knowledgeable and competent. My experience with them has been wonderful, and I wouldn't have had it any other way. If I have any more children, I will definitely be back to see them!
