Welcome Cabot River
’I'm SO glad we chose to work with Lori for our first pregnancy and birth. I felt SO supported and cared for every step of the way from the very first appointment at 8 weeks to preparing our home for birth to giving birth to the very last appointment 6 weeks postpartum where I cried like a baby because I was going to miss seeing her all the time!
Working with Lori was SO different than what I had expected from my experiences in hospitals. Every prenatal appointment with Lori was an hour-long. I never felt rushed or like a number. I know she truly cares about me and my baby. We had plenty of time to go over my stats, tweak my care plan, and to ask all of my questions which took away (most of) the fear of giving birth. I felt so empowered and confident because Lori took the time to teach me about how my body works! I learned how to really take care of myself from supplements, foods to eat, and activities to support my ever-growing belly and baby! I LOVE that she has so many suggestions to naturally support the body - herbs, supplements, food, mindset - and I listened to all of it! I know it's why I had a really easy pregnancy at 35!
Having Lori as my midwife and planning a home birth meant I never had to worry about who was on call or who was going to deliver my baby. It was always Lori! For me, it was VERY important to know and love my birth team so when it came time to deliver, everything felt comfortable with these beautiful people that I'd come to know so well over the last 9 months. And it did!!
Because of Lori, I was able to have a home birth with zero complications. There were a few times during labor that I didn't think I could do it. At that point, Lori had been with me for everything for the last 9 months so she knew me well and knew what I wanted for my birth. Lori coached me through all 24 hours of labor
which included 2 hours of pushing to help me deliver our sweet baby boy at home. It was the hardest and most beautiful thing I've ever done and I could've never done it without Lori.
Lori is an amazing, knowledgeable midwife with LOTS of experience and just a beautiful soul. It's so obvious that she is doing exactly what she was called to do. If you want a home birth, Lori is your girl! I really hope we are able to have another baby because I can't wait to do it again with Lori by my side.’ ~ Brittany G.
