After having an awful hospital birth with my first that resulted in an unnecessary c-section, I knew that I wanted a different experience with our second. Being a VBAC mama I was finding it hard to find a team that would care for and listen to me without pushing a repeat c-section. My husband found Sage-Femme Midwifery and I’m so glad we decided to trust them with our care. Right from the beginning they were amazing. I always felt like everyone on the team cared for me and listened to everything I had to say. They made me feel comfortable and confident to birth outside of the hospital setting. They were also extremely accommodating with appointments and gave me a place to birth in their “birth bnb” because we lived in Rochester. I will always recommend Kelly, Kristen, and their team. The 3 hour drives for appointments and to give birth were absolutely worth it and I would do it again. Thank you to everyone at Sage-Femme; I couldn’t have done it without you!... See MoreSee Less

What can I say, there family! I absolutely adore them all and I’m so grateful that I could be home for my first. And now for my second. To be able to have our first be with us through the whole delivery of his sister! It’s the best feeling in the world and a beautiful moment! ❤️❤️❤️❤️... See MoreSee Less

While we were intrigued by the idea of a home birth, my wife and I were filled with fear and doubt. How does it even work? What happens if you need a doctor? Isn’t the hospital the safest place to be? What if my wife needs drugs to get through the pain? In what scenarios do we have to rush to the hospital? At our first appointment with Kelly her magical aura and calming demeanor immediately put us at ease. She spent 2 hours educating us on the home birth experience and answered all our questions. When we walked out of our appointment my wife and I looked at each other and said, “this is where we need to be.”

With each appointment we broadened our knowledge and felt better prepared for natural birth. For all the dads out there, I highly recommend to make it a priority to attend each appointment. I benefited so much by doing so.

Finally, the day arrived when labor started and I can’t tell you how happy we were that we were in the comfort and familiarity of our own home. Our midwifery team came around 7am that morning and were with us every step of the way for the next 24 hours. My wife had a strenuous delivery and our Sage-Femme team beautifully guided us through it with unyielding positivity. The Sage-Femme team worked hard to keep us motivated and never let doubt or fear creep into the room. The environment was intimate, supportive and spiritual - I cannot imagine how much a hospital birth would have been the opposite.

I would strongly recommend two things: first, have a home birth. Second, work with Sage-Femme; they will deliver you an experience you’ll cherish the rest of your life.

Kelly McDermott and her Sage-Femme team are a divine gift to all the mamas in their care. Kelly McDermott is extremely smart, professional, and experienced. She takes the time to get to know her mamas (and their families) on a deeply personal level, which enables her to provide individualized and specialized care.

Kelly and her team have a hands on approach and are involved in the birthing process every step of the way. Kelly has chosen only the best to be a part of her team. All the women in this practice are living out their true calling in life.

If you choose to birth with Sage-Femme midwifery you will never be the same again, for you will always carry with you gratitude for their commitment, their wisdom, and their dedication to empowering women to tap into the innate power of their bodies.

My experience with Sage-Femme Midwifery was nothing short of amazing. Every mama out there deserves to experience the magic that Sage-Femme Midwifery has to offer.

I wasn't really sure what to expect going into this, but I can safely say I felt very comfortable every step of the way. The one thing I did know going in...was that I wanted a home birth & I wanted a pool. I didn't want a hospital where you're made to feel pressured into certain things, or where there might be limitations (in the time of covid). Kristen was always very up front with my options & making sure I felt informed. I always felt like my opinions & choices on everything were supported. This was my first child, & I never once felt nervous about any of it. I knew I wouldn't need to worry about being pressured into a doctor's schedule, or ending up with a random person I hadn't been seeing the whole time delivering, or be made to feel guilty about one thing or another. I would be where I was most comfortable, with who I wanted there, and going at my own pace. I had cdphp, who they were in-network with, & so that helped defer some of the out of pocket costs. Being able to do it how I wanted, knowing that's how I would be most comfortable, & free of stress, was worth the cost. Not to mention that it was nice to not need to get in a car right away with a newborn. We could just lounge at home, recovering, with the more immediate appointments being home visits. We now have an almost 5mo old, & I wouldn't have done it any other way. All in all it was a great experience.... See MoreSee Less
