The frustration of searching for the perfect doctor or midwife to assist you and your future miniature addition into this world is a maddening process. You want good responsive care, but in an environment that allows you to be yourself. You want to have that "in-home" feeling, as well as the freedom to marvel in this sacred moment of your life, without the intrusion of modern medicine's often imposing technology, but, of course, without jeopardizing the health of you or your baby. Fortunately, Seton Hospital has a team of three wonderful midwives, Mary Barnett, Nancy Loomis, and Melanie Benson, who work together at Women Partners in Health to allow patients to have that one-on-one camaraderie with their care professional. Not only can you utilize insurance benefits, but you can feel safe in a superb neonatal unit, all the while enjoying birth the way it was intended - naturally.
