"I have been going to Connecticut Childbirth & Women's Center for all of my women's healthcare needs for the past five years. The team of midwives at CCWC have cared for me and my babies for my last two pregnancies as well. The staff is friendly, caring, knowledgeable, and professional. They always make me feel comfortable and confident that I am in the best hands."
"Cathy delivered my son in October of 2013. She was absolutely incredible through the entire labor process, helping me to be calm and focused throughout - no small feat given that I lost my husband at 8 weeks pregnant and was terrified to be doing it without him. She continues to provide excellent gynecological care, and I hope one day to have the opportunity to use her midwifery expertise again. I would (and do) recommend Cathy and all the other midwives at CCWC."
"After delivering both of my beautiful girls, ( almost 20 years ago) I couldn't think of ever having anyone but the midwifery team continue with my gynecological care. I've had multiple procedures and although very personal, I could always trust that they were dedicated to providing professional care at the same time, comfort, true guidance and advice with "my" best interest in mind!"
"I have always been exceptionally pleased with the care I received from the midwives at the Connecticut Childbirth and Women's Center. I never felt rushed at appointments, and the care was very personal and professional. They spend plenty of time discussing birth control options, and other gynecological issues, and did a great job inserting an IUD for me - quick and fairly painless. I highly recommend these midwives. They are the best!"
