Happy clients

I highly recommend Bayla and her team! She has delivered two out of three of my little rug rats and I can’t express how wonderful she was during both births.
There's nothing better than the combination of a highly qualified medical professional and a calm, grounded presence who deeply trusts birth to unfold naturally.
I had the most empowering birth experience with Bayla and her team! Bayla unbiasedly shared my birthing options with me, and supported me in any decision I made throughout pregnancy and birth.
I could not have found a better midwife to have by my side as I delivered my baby and before and after...Thank you so much Hannah and all of you at Charm City. This was the best pregnancy/labor/
postpartum care I could have asked for!
