Colt’s Birth Story

I will never forget my first appointment with my future midwife, Kathaleen. She had invited me to tour All About Babies birthing center and to answer any questions. I had printed all of my health records including my miscarriage that included ambulance and hospitalization and our first delivery which was an emergency c section. I was positive she would tell me that I wasn't a candidate for VBAC nor did AAB want me since …

Ruthie’s Birth Story

Our care with AAB didn’t start until I wen through two other care providers and lovingly found peace when I walked through the door at All About Babies when I was 35 weeks pregnant. My labor started early in the morning on October 21, 2018. I woke Blake up and told him we were going to have a baby! Called my parents to come get Helen so we could labor at home, and called my midwife to let her know contractions were 4-5 minutes apart and pretty easy …

Jai’s Birth Story

“When we first heard about birthing centers I thought it was too good to be true. My only positive thought initially was that it was not a hospital. As we walked in for our first appointment and walk through, I was able to breath easy as it was homey and stress free. Every question was answered and they truly made us feel comfortable. I was really made into a believer when they made sure that we knew they were there for us and not vice versa …

Kai’s Birth Story

Donnellyn and All About Babies have been such a God send during all 3 of our births.  My husband and I were given Donnellyn's name to interview for our first pregnancy, but it didn't feel like an interview, it felt like sitting down and chatting with a beloved family member.  And that's how it was throughout our first, second, and third pregnancy. I will be forever grateful and feel amazingly blessed to have had all my babies with Donnellyn; she is …

Boaz’s Birth Story

Boaz Jude Anderson was born Thursday, May 24, 2018 at 5:38pm, 3 weeks and 1 day before his due date. Based on my charts, by early October I knew that I was pregnant, and I was filled with emotion as I read, "The Lord your God who goes before you will Himself fight for you, just as He did for you in Egypt before your eyes, and in the wilderness, where you have seen how the Lord your God carried you, as a man carries his son, all the way that you …

Goldie Mae’s Birth Story

We anxiously awaited our sweet Goldie Mae, but I was sure I was going 10 days late like I was with my first 2! Surprisingly she came just 3 days later than my due date. We labored at home for a little bit, and decided to head to the birth center. We arrived and the peace that filled the room was amazing. We knew our girl was coming! After laboring for a few hours…

Rhemy’s Mae’s Birth Story

My third pregnancy, labor, and birth were all surprises to me. We chose to keep the gender of our third little babe a surprise until delivery. I thought I was going into labor before I actually was. I even went to the birth center, ready to deliver sometime in the near future only to find that I was not in labor yet. The pain and contractions felt so real though! After eating dinner at Jason’s Deli and walking around Target, we went home to rest…

Tobin’s Birth Story

About 5 minutes before Denver actually got home at 12:45pm, I crawled into bed after texting Donnellyn to ask if we could come in (of course she said yes).  He came upstairs to check on me,  I told him I thought we should pack up the car, I figured I’d rather go in and be sent home then be home, scared and clueless. When he was in the room, I kept asking him to hurry and move quickly.  I wanted to…

Jacob’s Birth Story

As soon as we found out we were pregnant I knew I was going to a birth center. Even though I had witnessed my sister’s birth at All About Babies, I toured a few in the area and though they were nice, I felt drawn and so comfortable with the awesome facilities at All About Babies. I met with Donnellyn and Hannah for my first visit and knew I was in good hands. Since this was my first pregnancy and I was somewhat clueless, I followed all directions; took every supplement, drank every…
