“Natural birth has a purpose and a plan; who would think of tearing open the chrysalis as the butterfly is emerging? Who would break the shell to pull the chick out?” — Marie Mongan

Mom of the Month
Some of you may recognize our next Mom of the Month because after she transferred into our care halfway through her pregnancy we hired her as a full time office assistant!  It was the best decision Brookhaven has made!  Mia has quickly became part of our family and we absolutely adore little baby Aly!

Mia Buracker

Before my husband and I even began planning our family, I knew I wanted to have a natural labor and birth. So when we became pregnant I knew I wanted to find a midwife. I transferred care to Brookhaven after my 20 week ultrasound. I knew from my first appointment that I made the right decision, because Brookhaven felt like home.

My labor started around 12:30 pm. I arrived at Brookhaven around 10:30 am. I was 7cm dilated and extremely excited! However, after 6.5 hours of contractions with no progress being made, we decided to make the transfer to the hospital. Misty and the rest of the Brookhaven staff were with me throughout my labor at the hospital. I had the most amazing team with me. I delivered my daughter, Alysa, via a c-section at 11:17 pm. Even though my birth wasn't what I had planned I had the most amazing group of women behind me the whole time. With the support of my husband, doula, Brookhaven team, and hospital team I now have a beautiful baby girl to forever be grateful for. Transferring our care was one of the best decisions we have made, and I so look forward to my next pregnancy where I will return to Brookhaven and hopefully have a successful VBAC!
