We've had our babies with this practice, gotten the best care ever.  We'd never go anywhere else and would follow these women until the ends of the earth, thereby leaving Mercy.  We're very disappointed in this decision.  Your doing so has cost the women of the Baltimore area the choice of having a wholesome, healthy, non-invasive birth experience.

      This is just wrong. My husband likes the security of delivering in a hospital and I love the care I received from Kathy. There are not that many choices for people who want the security of the hospital and the experience and care of a midwife.

      Evidence shows that midwife-attended births have lower C-section rates and excellent outcomes for both mother and baby. You are moving in precisely the wrong direction with this decision.

      I delivered 2 children with OB/GYNs and my 3rd child with Kathy Sloane and associates. It was like night and day. I received good care with my first 2 pregnancies and births, but what I experienced with the midwives was world's apart. They spent at least 45 minutes with me at each prenatal check up, really trying to get to know me and all the dynamics of my marriage, home life, etc. so they could best care for me. They were open to the fact that my husband and I practice natural family planning, whereas, my OB/GYN, as they all do, tried to push birth control on me after my second child was born, and actually laughed when I told her we do not use artificial methods of regulating births. The birth process itself was so much more peaceful and natural with Kathy Sloan, who was present with me as much as possible and was not in a rush, as is usual with OB/GYNs who show up at the last minute yelling, "PUSH!!!", thus causing tearing and trauma to the perennial tissue and skin. I could go on and on. This is a very poor decision. It will be a BIG loss to push this practice out the door.
