My daughter was born at Andaluz and I would go back again in a heartbeat. At the time, I was young, low income and on food stamps and the Oregon Health Plan, which paid for the amazing care I received at Andaluz. Giving birth in an atmosphere of respect and empowerment was an incredible turning point for me after feeling ambivalent about the pregnancy. Trusting my own body and working with it to bring my daughter into the world changed my entire perspective about myself and allowed me to embrace my own intuition and make healthy choices for me and my daughter. Today my family is healthy, and I am a very different person and in a very different place in life because of the love and support of a midwife.
