Here's What Some of Our Patients Have To Say About CMMC's Midwives
The Williams' Birth Story
A trip to Central Maine Medical Center revealed to Jessika Williams that she was pregnant with her first child. She decided to receive her maternity care at Central Maine Obstetrics-Gynecology, and in June, her first child was born at CMMC's Special Delivery Family Birthing Center. "It was great – it was amazing," Jessika says.
"They were all wonderful. They treated us like family."
She was struck by how involved and personable the nurses, midwives and doctors were – not only with her, but also with members of her family. Jessika says she told her midwife, Susan Jacoby, that if she has another child: "I will be back!"

THANK YOU! When we started this journey we didn't really understand the difference between a doctor and a midwife. We are so glad we decided to use a midwife and will recommend you and your practice to our friends and family. You made this entire experience natural, fun and easy. You and the rest of the staff at Central Maine OB/GYN are simply amazing people! Thank you so much for your support over the past nine months!

The Gammon's Birth Story
When Jamie Gammon became pregnant with her second child, she knew immediately she would do the same thing she did with her first baby: Select a Central Maine Obstetrics-Gynecology certified nurse-midwife as care provider for her and her unborn baby.
"CMMC's midwives are in tune with you," she says. "They'll do whatever you need. They'll rub your back and talk to you. It was really helpful having someone to talk to."
She also appreciates the sensitivity of the entire CMMC Special Delivery Family Birthing Center staff. "They were friendly but didn't get in your way. They respected your boundaries and what you wanted," Jamie says.

We just wanted to thank you for being the best OB/GYN Midwife anyone could have. You provided excellent prenatal care for our family and we look forward to having you as our Midwife in our future pregnancy. I would highly recommend you to any of my family or friends. I also wanted to thank you for helping me to be able to rebuild my trust of a patient/doctor relationship again. I had not seen a gynecologist in 7 years prior to walking into your office and meeting with you because of a bad experience with a prior doctor. Thank you for being down to earth and having a sense of humor, yet being so well educated and dedicating yourself to your job. Thanks Again

To Whom it may concern:
I wanted to take a few minutes to say thank you to your hospital and it's wonderful staff for the care of my daughter. She delivered our first grandchild at your facility on Tuesday, October 5th. The entire staff was professional, caring and comforting. They provided guidance and made her feel special before the delivery, during her delivery and afterwards. From the nurses, the lactation specialist, the Midwives and pediatrician - everyone was wonderful! Even the housekeepers, food staff and student nurses were great. I would also like to thank Central Maine OB/GYN for their excellent care of Courtney. She is young, somewhat anxious and her fiancee left her 3 months into the pregnancy. Jane, Darlene and Amanda (at the Norway office) were always supportive and willing to give advice and comfort while remaining professional. It really felt like part of an extended family. Courtney and Avery are now home and doing well. Thank you, once again, to the excellent caregivers at CMMC and Central Maine OB/GYN.
