Loretta was very good to work with. She brought a confidence and her years of experience that put me at ease. She helped me to have the perfect homebirth experience I desired in 2016. It was wonderful to have Loretta as my midwife. I'd love to work with her again.

— Anita Smith

The training program is excellent and the midwives are very supportive of providing the birth experience you want. My wife and I both felt like these midwives prepared us very well about what to expect at a birth and what is happening with the baby.

Immediately upon walking into My Family Birth Center, I felt very comfortable and welcomed. The center is so beautiful! I love seeing Loretta, she always has a genuine smile on her face! She has great energy and wisdom to help guide you on your childbirth journey.

Loretta is exactly what you want in a midwife: gentle in her approach but fierce in her knowledge and passion for birth and caring for women through pregnancy. She truly loves her work and wants to improve women's health outcomes in all that she does.

Loretta Shupe is a very skilled Midwife and we are very pleased with her services and energetic attitude. She showed genuine concern and great care throughout the birth of our son.

— Gregory Smith

I invited Loretta to attend my last birth. I chose home water birth, and Loretta's calm confidence enhanced my experience. She valued my opinion and provided excellent care!

— Heather Wade

I have worked with Loretta on more than one occasion, and my experience with her has always been positive. In one particular instance, she was the grounding force for my client and knew exactly how to connect with and meet her needs. I'd say her thoughtful energy and influence was the biggest contributing factor to that successful VBAC.

Home Birth

Home birth services are available.  Our goal is for two midwives and one birth assistant to attend and give the same watchful care as given in the birth center whenever possible.  A birth pool and accessories are available so that the couple may enjoy the comfort of hydrotherapy and finish the birth either as a waterbirth or in the atmosphere of their own furnishings.
