I had my first baby at home with Kelly and her team. I will never do it any other way! I cannot say enough how amazing they are as caregivers. I never felt like I couldn't ask any questions or that my preferences were wrong and that I needed to do my pregnancy and birth in a way I didn't feel comfortable. I was always given every option out there and I never felt pressured to pick anything specific outside of what I wanted. Kelly is the most knowledgeable caregiver I've met and she does her own research which results in giving people the best individualized care they can get! She also never neglected my husband and was always asking about his concerns. I love the way she always included him and any other family members!... See MoreSee Less

Kelly, Rachel and Lindsay were AMAZING for my first birth (and first home birth) experience. The passion and confidence this team has is unmatched. You can tell they actually care about you, and even after the birth, they are there whenever you need them. A friend of mine shared her birth story with me and since then I have always known that when I got pregnant, my first call would be to Sage Femme. When my water broke and I didn’t go into labor, Kelly worked with me to come up with a plan we both were comfortable with. Fast forward to being in labor and Kelly says my baby is breech. I knew I could do it because they gave me the confidence to deliver my sweet little girl over a month early and feet first!! In a hospital setting, I would have for sure had to have a C-Section and that was the LAST thing I wanted. I am SO THANKFUL for these women for empowering me to have the best birth experience I could have hoped for, and in the comfort of my own home. Not to mention, keeping my husband calm and on-task, which is something i dont think anyone has been able to do ever.... See MoreSee Less

After the experience I had delivering my first child in a hospital (which included unnecessary interventions, unnecessary medications, and complete lack of respect or consideration for myself as the patient), I knew I wanted a different experience than the hospital environment could provide. I had heard of Sage-Femme through a couple friends that had delivered with Kelly. From the beginning, Kelly made me feel comfortable, capable, listened to, respected, and actually involved in my care. Not only that, but my husband and our first child were included and cared for just as much as I was. Kelly really went above and beyond in every aspect of prenatal and postpartum care, and even more so during birth. After my previous birth, I expected to feel some fear and anxiety during labor, but that was not the case. Kelly helped prepare me beforehand, and during labor she was so calming and supportive. Throughout the entire pregnancy/labor/delivery, I felt that I and my baby were safe and in the best hands.
I struggled with postpartum depression/anxiety after my first child and was given absolutely no education or support from the hospital/practice I delivered with. From my very first appointment with Sage-Femme, Kelly was proactive in helping me make a plan and manage any potential symptoms. I have always been hesitant when it comes to seeking help for mental health struggles, and Kelly was very compassionate, supportive, and understanding. Because of her care, interventions, and referral to outside resources, the postpartum period after my second child has been much better than the first.
I can safely say my family was able to have the experience surrounding pregnancy and childbirth that we were looking for, and I cannot recommend Sage-Femme Midwifery highly enough.

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
