"The level of care I received from Susan & her team was extraordinary. She really took the time to get to know me and what I needed in this birth experience, and executed that on delivery day. I felt safe and confident in her expansive knowledge. Susie at the front desk is also delightful, warm and eager to help."

"Niki is a wonderful midwife. She is a good listener and explains things in a way that makes you feel valued and part of the birth team. I had a less then idea birth with my first, and my second didn’t go as planned either, but Niki included me in the decision making and was supportive to me the entire pregnancy. I wouldn’t have a baby with anyone else!"

I had the most amazing experience with Lisa Stotts! Gosh, I just love her. I knew I wanted to have my baby at TBI so I looked through their providers and Lisa immediately caught my eye. I called her and left a message and she called me back right away and scheduled an appointment with me right then and there. She was so loving and sweet, she gave me a hug after every appointment, which I loved.

I can’t even begin to express how grateful I feel to have found Kay. I’ve never felt able to truly be myself with a healthcare provider and Kay accepted my weirdness and anxiety every step of the way. We will never forget her calm, patience, and incredible stamina (through days of induction and an eventual c-section which was far different than our birth center plans) that brought our son into the world. Her incredible empathy and skill guided us through one of the most intense experiences - and she’s a laugh riot to boot. If you’ve felt ignored, dismissed, or disconnected from care before, make an appointment at Off the Grid. "We adore her".

For those who would like to see Nora's birth...It's up! Raw & beautiful but keeping it appropriate. 😉💗✨💫 As I planned for my birth with Nora, I thought about how I wanted my birth to be. Not the typical, rushed hospital birth that I experienced with my other 3 children that left me feeling defeated and pressured. I knew I wanted it to be special and unique in my own way. I did lots of research and came up with my own birth plan; I named it water, earth, and fire. I wanted a natural water birth surrounded by love of family, candles, crystal's, soft meditation music and my fav diffuser blend of dōTERRA's Serenity and Lavender eō's to help keep the atmosphere peaceful and calm. Nora would be birthed in water, she would take her first breath in a relaxed space on earth. I will embrace her, place her on my chest, skin to skin and begin nursing. When I am ready, we will seal her umbilical cord with fire of a flamed candle. My dream came true on October, 10th 2019. My beautiful daughter was born exactly how I envisioned. During birth, I felt as if I was having an out of body experience. I was in a deep meditative state, traveling through my labyrinth of birth while calling upon my higher power, my father, my guardians for support. My room was filled with so much love and powerful energy. Right before Nora arrived a rush of energy bolted through me and Nora was born. She took her first breath earth-side, and I will forever remember this moment. My birth moment. I felt empowered and proud. Birth is beautiful, and to be present during and after birthing Nora is a gift I will treasure for a lifetime. I thank my midwife, Lisa and her assistant, Melissa for all of their support, love and care, my hubby who supports all of my decisions, Miyaeva for recording the whole birth, Konen for his support and presence in the room even when I told him he didn't have to be (he's not good with stuff like that), Kyran for all of his involvement throughout my whole pregnancy and helping with Nora's birth. Not sure who was more excited, him or me. And I thank my mom for her presence and photographing my whole birth. You all are so much a part of this beautiful moment and I could not have done it without you all. Love you guys! #BirthIsBeautiful
