I met Barbie when I was 18 years old (I am now 29). She was my moms midwife, her recommendations were high. My mom had four c-sections and then having one other home birth, she wanted a very experienced midwife. Barbie did a great job, and when my brother’s cord was wrapped tight around his neck, Barbie very calmly knew exactly what had to be done. She cut and clamped the cord before he was completely delivered. Everything else went wonderful and I had a healthy baby brother. I then went to work for Barbie in her office in Coeur d’ Alene. I was able to see first hand how Barbie loved babies and how she took care of the women she saw. She also knows how important nutrition is during pregnancy, so you get a nutrition counselor as well! Later when I was pregnant with my 2nd baby (my first baby was born in California with a midwife) I was able to see Barbie! I had a wonderful experience! She even let me birth on her bed as we were just moving at the time. I wouldn’t trade the experience for anything. Barbie was kind, she made me very comfortable and I knew that I was in the best hands. Not only did she deliver my brother and my second daughter but she has delivered many of my very good friend’s babies, as well as many other women I personally know.
