Let’s face it. Birth is weird
And everyone – from your mom to your doctor to your college roommate – has something to tell you about it. They all know what will happen, what has to happen or what can’t ever in a million years happen. But the fact is, a lot of that stuff they tell you is a myth, based on nothing more than tradition or provider preference. In this quick little guide, you’ll get an evidence-based overview of 10 common myths about labor and birth. Get a free copy for requesting a consult!
Where is the best place to have a baby in Gaithersburg, MD?
Thats a great question! So many people just stick with their long-time gynecologist, and go wherever they happen to deliver babies. This is not the best way to figure out where to give birth in Gaithersburg. Do your research! Look for a provider who has a philosophy that aligns with your own. It just so happens that one of the best hospital-based midwifery practices actually catch babies right in Gaithersburg’s backyard! Midwifery Care Associates is a stellar midwifery practice with low c-section rates, high VBAC rates, and a dedication to women-centered, evidence-based care in a hospital setting. They practice at Shady Grove Adventist Hospital, which is right off of I-270 in Rockville.

I felt empowered and in charge when I decided to move forward with interventions I hadn’t originally wanted. It was a night and day difference to my previous birth. She never wavered in her support; she never made me feel like she doubted my ability to give birth. Jenny’s support was invaluable, and I highly recommend her.
Jenny was a fabulous doula and I really don’t think we could have gotten through the labor without her. She helped us every step along the way, from the very start weeks before the labor, and during the labor she was amazing, all the way to weeks after the labor. Jenny helped keep me and my husband calm. Jenny helped us stick to our birth plan as much as possible, and was so so helpful to my husband, who was a bit of a wreck! I’m so glad we had Janny during our labor and birth and would definitely use her again.
I highly recommend Jenny. She is a fabulous Doula and we would have been lost without her!
