When my little guy came earlier than we were expecting, my midwife was out of town. Margo drove out to Grand Rapids in the middle of the night to help deliver my baby. Her presence during the birth was so peaceful and calm. I was able to labor uninterrupted until it was go time. She held my hand though some of my roughest contractions. When she could tell I was beginning to panic she encouraged me to calm my breathing and helped me refocus. She and her doula even went above and beyond during the clean up afterwards. This is an experience that you will never forget. I would do it again in a heartbeat. - Rachel Eller
Margo has been an absolute gem in our lives. This is my first pregnancy, and I have wanted to have a very hands-off delivery in my home. Margo is by far the most physiological midwife I have met, and we interviewed quite a few.

"I highly recommend Margo. I appreciated that she was so willing to adjust her care to my preferences. She really puts all the choices in the client's hands but is willing to share research or her own opinion if you ask for it. I loved that she traveled to my home for prenatals so we were all comfortable in the environment I would be laboring in. And she always did a great job including my son at my prenatal visits." - Amanda Lambert
Meeting Margo was the best thing to happen to me throughout my entire pregnancy. And one of the best things of my whole life. She made me feel at peace and confident in myself more than anyone else ever has my entire life. I can't imagine having labored and birthed without her! She stayed with me for two whole days, including the time after transporting to the hospital. She came to my home for prenatal appointments, labor, and every day for the first week after birth! She brought me herb baths, tincture for after birth pains, herbs for my son's bellybutton, and best of all loving support and confidence in being a first time mother. She took the time to talk and reflect about my birth experience and offered emotional support and knowledgeable insight into the experience. I am eternally grateful for her great knowledge and loving care. Thank you, Margo! - Jeanne Saver
Margo was present with me for the birth of my first child. I could not have asked for more soulful, loving, empowering and excellent guidance and care getting ready for birth. She is smart, well studied, passionate and one of the kindest people I know. I also love her honesty and sense of humor but those are just a bonus....
Margo was with me during a very long labor period. I will never forget her love and attention. Everyone should have that kind of presence available to them! I felt so safe and held in moments when I had to let go. She was there. Never does my sons birthday pass when I don't think of Margo and the angel that she was to me at the time of my greatest need for support. You could not make a better choice of a wise woman to assist and support you in birth. - Magnolia C
I was in town visiting my parents when I had cramping and became concerned about my pregnancy. When I called Margo out of the blue, she saw me at her house less than two hours later. She felt my uterus, listened to the baby's heartbeat, and taught me about what to expect in terms of cramping and uterine growth at this stage of pregnancy. And all of this despite her never having met me before today and me not being one of her regular patients. I left feeling cared for, listened to, and reassured. - Rachel
