What Clients are Saying about Midwife Allyson Juneau-Butler

"The moment Allyson arrived to my home, I felt relief knowing that my baby and I would be taken care of. She followed every request I had for my birthplan, but more importantly seemed to know what I wanted and needed before I even did. She established such a close relationship with my little family throughout our time together. I remember leaving a prenatal visit and my husband remarked, "Wow, Allyson really loves our baby". That was a sweet moment I will always remember. My home water birth was an amazing and powerful experience and a large part of that I credit to the midwifery care I received from Allyson Butler. Her knowledge of pregnancy, childbirth, and babies is outshone only by her gentle and sweet personality."

"...I would only recommend you, Allyson, to other women planning a homebirth. This is your calling. You are meant to assist families bring their angels into this world..."

"...You have ONLY the best interest of the baby and the family in your heart. You are gentle, responsive, knowledgeable and just GET IT..."

"...goes above and beyond the call of duty for her clients even after they give birth..."

"...It's nice to say that not only did I get a wonderful midwife, but I gained a friend through out my pregnancy and birth..."

"First I want to start off by saying how wonderful my birth was! It was so wonderful that I feel cheated on the births of my older girls. If I were ever going to consider having another child, I would hire Allyson again in a heart beat! My favorite part of receiving midwifery care was how very personal it was. When I would go to the obgyn I would wait for 3 hours to be seen for 5 minutes. The doctor didn't even seem to remember me from visit to visit. When I made the switch to midwifery care, I got a much more personal experience. I would wait no more than 5 minutes and I would sit there and talk with Allyson for at least an hour...sometimes longer. And on a side note I want to add that she still checks in on me and my baby is almost 7 months old now! My homebirth and care were more than amazing. I was so comfortable being able to labor and birth in my own home. Because I was so comfortable it went very quickly. Allyson was there with me the whole time and helped to keep both me and my husband calm during transition. We rented a birthing tub and I was able to labor and give birth in the tub like I always wanted to. After giving birth to my beautiful 8lb 11oz baby girl, I was able to relax in my own bed with my other children and husband. (something they don't let you do in the hospital). Allyson came back the next day to check on me and my baby. She still checks up on me to this day. It's nice to say that not only did I get a wonderful midwife, but I gained a friend through out my pregnancy and birth. Not only do I recommend midwifery care and homebirth to anyone who might be considering it, but I have referred many expecting mama's to Allyson. She is a loving and caring person who goes above and beyond the call of duty for her clients even after they give birth. If I can convince my hubby to go for number 4, you can believe that the first call I make will be to Allyson!" - Wendy, mom to Olivia, 3.16.11

"My favorite thing about receiving midwifery care was that I got to have YOU as my midwife for our second child and you were our doula for our first. I knew that the baby would have complete control over it’s birth (later realizing that he really was taking matters into his own little hands by being almost 3 weeks "late")…OOOOOHHHH how relaxing the homebirth was, I got to drink my own drink, use my own towels, lay in my own bed, my family got to comfortably apart of it. No waiting in a stale hospital waiting room. The birth tub, the candles, the alone time preparing were all wonderful. I would only recommend you, Allyson, to other women planning a homebirth. This is your calling. You are meant to assist families bring their angels into this world. You were a doula to us at our first birth and in that time you became our friend. I will never forgot how you brought me back to "myself" when I was about wits end with nursing (day 2) and the note you gave me. You have ONLY the best interest of the baby and the family in your heart. You are gentle, responsive, knowledgeable and just GET IT. There is no other person who I would trust to be a part of a homebirth as a midwife…Your care was 1000X better than the care of the doctor I had the first time (and if were going natural at a hospital he was the best). I loved that when we had appointments we were the only one at the office and at the end of the pregnancy you were at our house! I loved how you gave us the opportunity to make decisions based on what we thought was best for us. In a hospital it is all stemmed around malpractice, or a doctor’s schedule. I loved both my births but the homebirth holds a special place in my heart. It was transforming and sweet at the entire time. I could not say that about my hospital birth, as soon as the staff got involved it was over. Thank you for all you do and I am happy to have had you as our midwife and love you as our friend." – Linda Jacobson, mom to Samuel and Rawley 9.11.10
