I first met Nedra in 2011 when I was pregnant with what would be my second child. I drove down to Denver from the mountains for my prenatal visits. I really enjoyed getting to know her, even though I probably only had 2 or 3 visits before I left town for the summer. Unfortunately, early into that summer away, I went into premature labor and ultimately lost the babies. (I had just found out that I was pregnant with twins!) However, during the whole ordeal Nedra was available to me over the phone giving me advice and support – and it was SO appreciated. When I finally got pregnant again in 2013, she was the first person I called. Unfortunately, she wasn’t available during my due date, because she had that time blocked off for a family vacation, so she gave me a list of four other midwives she recommended. Gina was on that list. And after talking to all of the options, I felt the best about Gina. She sounded competent, yet very positive – and I needed that positive energy after my previous ordeal. As I got to know Gina, I learned that she takes her mission very seriously and is constantly striving to learn more and stay on the cutting-edge of the profession. I believe she’s a leader in the advancement of the midwifery cause. Also, I’d like to add that I when I found out I was pregnant in 2013, I was out of town for the summer again. When I had an early episode of severe bleeding (before I had an official care provider), I called Nedra. Once again she provided me with caring and compassionate support. I can’t tell you how much this meant to me. So needless to say, I was pretty bummed that Nedra wasn’t going to able to attend my birth due to her vacation, but after getting to know Gina, I was certainly happy to have her on my team! I had no doubt that I made the right choice for our family. But as luck would have it, my baby came a few weeks early, and Nedra was able to attend my birth after all – as Gina’s assistant! I couldn’t have been more thrilled to have the two best midwives I know attend my daughter’s birth. I would highly recommend either one of them, but the fact that Gina and Nedra are partnering is a huge win for anyone that would engage their midwifery services. You are guaranteed highly competent, compassionate care with this duo.
Nedra was my midwife for my third birth and Gina was the second midwife in attendance. The birth started fun and had some adventure at the end. My midwives were a joy to be around when things were “easy” and rock solid when things got bumpy. I adore and respect them both so much and am so glad to see them officially working together!
As you can imagine, being a midwife myself and trying to choose the midwives who would deliver my baby was a stressful task. I knew too much, was too picky about how I wanted things done, but when I decided to have Gina & Nedra as my birth team I had total peace. They were skilled, patient, and believed in my body’s ability to birth even when I didn’t. I know, absolutely, that if they had not been my midwives I would’ve ended up transferring to the hospital…but with them supporting me I birthed a 9lb14oz baby safely…as a first time mom! Also, I’ll always remember hearing them laughing together in the background while I was in labor…extra points for a team who not only chooses to work together, but actually also likes each other enough to laugh & choose joy when they’ve been at a birth way too many hours!
Gina was the midwife at both of my home births. My first son was born in August 2017, and my daughter was born in February 2019. For both births, she was knowledgable, calm, and caring. Most importantly to me, a mother who deals with gestational anxiety, she made me feel safe and positive during each and every prenatal visit. My births were beautiful, and an amazing experience. Thanks, Gina!
Nedra assisted at the birth of my second son and is kind and compassionate as well as very knowledgeable and skilled. Gina is my friend and colleague. I highly admire her knowledge and skill as well. A great team of midwives!!
I had wonderful experiences with Nedra as my midwife with all four of my home births. And I’ve had the pleasure of meeting with Gina for a checkup and she assisted in one of my births. All fantastic experiences! I highly recommend these gals!
We had our 8th child this morning. It was our second home birth with Gina. If you are considering home birth, Gina and the team at metro midwifery are great!
Gina and Nedra attended the birth of my daughter and I could not have been in better hands. I felt safe and trusted them both completely. They are a great team and it was so fun to work with them. I <3 Gina & Nedra!
I had a home birth in August 2016 with Gina. This was my 3rd home-birth at the time. Gina was knowledgeable, attentive, and so caring! She respected my birth plan, and my decision to decline certain care. When I found out I was pregnant with #4, I contacted her to see if she could fly into my new state to help me deliver! I am so thankful for the care that I received, and highly recommend her!
Gina delivered my little one in January 2019. She is very patient and kind. She was there through a lot of emotional stuff during and after my pregnancy. She is more than a midwife, she was a great source of support. I will 100% use her again if I have another baby. <3 Hooray for homebirth!
