Every time I was at the birth center I felt welcomed and taken care of. I had to go to most of the appointments without my husband so it was hard to keep our toddler in the room and occupied. Someone was always willing to help keep an eye on her so that I was able to focus on my growing baby. The birth experience was great and I had the perfect team of midwives cheering and encouraging me with my husband. What a great experience! I hope to be able to deliver the rest of our family at Loretta Shupe's birth center.

I tear up every time I think of the experience we had bringing our beautiful baby girl earth side. The Birth Room is beautiful but it's really the people that provide the experience. Thank you a million times for your love, patience and kindness. You all will always be in our hearts!

— The Smith Family

We were so incredibly blessed to work with some amazing people during our birth! Such an amazing and empowering experience working with Loretta Shupe and her team! I'm a huge believer that everyone should be able to birth in whatever way is right for them (as long as everyone is safe) and we more than got the birth we wanted at the birth center.

— Nicole Stephens

It was an incredible experience. I'm so thankful for all of you.

Our hearts are so full. The delivery was everything we dreamed of.  Ed Avalos assisted the delivery, and was a champ! We are home now, just 12 hours after labor began, getting rested up and enjoying Baby.

— MaKayla Avalos

I cannot begin to say thank you thank you thank you enough to this incredible birth team! Hanan, Heather, Loretta, and Sarah.  They showed us the incredible world of home birth and all the joy that was available to us, and then they helped make our dream a reality!

When I started looking for midwives my first appointment was with My Family Birth Center. First step in and first impression of Loretta and her amazing team and I couldn't look any further. They were beyond supportive of exactly how me and my husband wanted to deliver our daughter. And on the night of her birth we couldn't have asked for a better experiance! I wish I could describe what a magical night and how much help these women are but words cannot begin to describe! Thank you again to Loretta, Micah and Eryn for making our special night everything we had hoped!

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.

— Spencer Shupe

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.

— Savannah Smith

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.

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!
