Born 2 B A Blessing
There is no better experience than you will find here. Terry and her staff are the best there is. So compassionate and caring and truly a BLESSING!
Terry was my midwife with both of my children.
My first was a hospital transfer from a birth center to induce due to placental insufficiency. She was by my side through the 40 hour labor though she was not technically my care provider anymore. She absolutely made the right call getting me to the hospital that day. Thanks to her encouragement, I was still able to achieve a vaginally birth.
My second was a beautiful home birth. It was peaceful and redemptive for all of us. Terry made another call with this birth that changed our lives. Our daughter was diagnosed with a heart defect that needed correcting at 19 days old thanks to Terry’s experience and knowledge. She made sure we saw our pediatrician ASAP after hearing a heart murmur during the newborn exam, and our pediatrician sent us to a cardiologist. When we scheduled her procedure, Terry let us know she was available to come with us for emotional (and spiritual) support if we wanted, which I absolutely did. She was with us during my daughter’s procedure and prayed over us frequently.
I am forever grateful for this woman’s care and support.
Terry Gyde was my midwife with both pregnancies so far. She started off as a stranger and became a dear friend. She consistently spent an hour with us at each appointment, sometimes longer. It meant a lot to me that she would take the time to explain things well, especially with my first pregnancy. She focuses on nutrition a lot and how important it is to give your body what it needs to grow a baby and prepare for a good birth.
She has had every type of birth experience with her own births - c-section, epidural, stillbirth, twins, and homebirth. No matter your birth history, she will be able to relate with you on a personal level.
What I really love is that she was a doula for many years before becoming a midwife. During both my births, she functioned as a doula and midwife. She knew what to suggest to make me more comfortable. She encouraged me. She prayed for me. She stroked my hair and reminded me to relax different parts of my body. She was sensitive to my wishes and the atmosphere that was created. She loves well.
After 3 hospital births, and every intervention under the sun, the Lord lead us to an experience with Terry. Oh, the difference and the blessing!! She educated us. She didn't tell us what our choices should be..she led us to the tools ,and resources to make our own educated decisions. She has had her own varied birth experiences, so she truly understands what us Mama's are going through. She is an amazing woman of God, prayer warrior, and now dear friend. She has been at 3 of our births, guiding, listening, praying, comforting, and loving our family. Such a precious gift!
And we are not the only ones, many friends have had the same blessing of Terry as their midwife...and friend.....you see once she's your midwife, she'll automatically be your dear friend!
We used Terry with our first. I was 16 weeks when we interviewed with her and we walked out of that appointment knowing we would be leaving our OB.
I come a VERY medical minded family and we didn’t have much support from my side.
However I do believe it was the education and nutrition that I learned from Terry that saved me. I was boarder line PreE the whole time and really had to watch what I ate. I jokingly called her my Army Sargent but it was truly what I needed. She wasn’t afraid to tell me no and that I had to change bad habits. So also was big on teaching us. I learned so much. She was good at not projecting her views on us, just would ask what we thought of different things and then as long as she was satisfied that we had a educated decision she was happy.
During birth she was amazing!! She was a Doula for years before becoming a midwife and it really shows.
My mom wasn’t happy with us choosing a midwife but after the birth (which she attended) she herself gave a stunning review for Terry.
We again had Terry as our midwife for our daughter 3 years later. I’m so thankful for her and I could go on and on.
I’m even up for telling you more if you call me haha! She is an awesome midwife, friend, prayer warrior.
Terry is a wonderful midwife! She is so loving and caring, such an encouraging presence! The care I received from her and the knowledge she has made for an incredible experience. I truly felt loved, safe, and understood - which to me are very important when you’re sharing a life experience such as having a baby. Terry cares about the whole family as well, praying for us and speaking life into us. There really aren’t enough good things I could say about her and the care she gave us, I am truly grateful to have her be my midwife and even more blesse that I now feel I can call her my friend as well.
Terry is an excellent midwife. She assisted me with my most recent home birth. I appreciate her skill, experience, and compassionate care.
She is professional, punctual, and organized when it comes to business. She is loving, kind, and understanding as a person. She became my friend and not just a healthcare provider.
I was impressed at how well she got to know me and understand my desires for the birth and for prenatal care. She did not try to impose her own personal beliefs but supported me fully while offering her knowledge and expertise.
I felt I could safely trust her to make decisions for us in an emergency situation.
My homebirth was beautiful and managed well. This was my seventh birth, the fourth homebirth. I would not hesitate to hire her again.
Terry was a great midwife! She was very knowledgeable and allowed me to birth as I wanted. Her gentle and loving approach at every appointment,as well as during labor, was exactly what we needed to welcome our baby into the world!
