Mary was our midwife for our second child and we had a wonderful experience! I appreciated how personable she was and felt she really cared about me. She helped me prepare for a natural, unmedicated childbirth and was very supportive throughout the entire process. The birth of our daughter was an extremely positive, special experience. We worked with three of the midwives from the practice during labor and birth and were exceptionally well cared for. I highly recommend the entire midwife team, especially Mary, to all those who are looking for a birth team who will support and care for you throughout the whole process.

Choosing Mary Bauer to be my midwife through both of my pregnancies was the best choice I made. She is such a kind, comforting, knowledgeable, and professional person. During each appointment, she took time to check in with me and was always available when concerns arose in-between appointments (along with other members of the midwife group). She took my concerns seriously and helped to address them. Most importantly for me, she made me feel comfortable and taken care of.

I'm a first time mom and Mary Bauer delivered our baby. It was the most amazing birth. She gave us options I didn't even know I could have during labor and delivery and was just such a wonderful person to have. She did an amazing Job in every way. I had planned to have a water birth, labored in the water until 9cm when I decided to get out. She supported every decision I made and continuously let me know my options. Most amazing birth experience I could have ever had. Even a mirror to watch it.

As someone who, luckily, never spent much time in the doctor's office, I really wanted to find a place that felt comfortable, safe and not too antiseptic. Mary's office was it! She was professional, knowledgeable and skilled, without every making me feel like my pregnancy was a disease or something to fear. I'd recommend her to anyone looking for a supportive, encouraging and low-intervention prenatal experience!

Mary Bauer and everyone on the midwifery team with Presence gave just outstanding care. I felt I was in the hands of a team of knowledgeable, wise and caring women who saw me as an individual. I was able to get all the information I could ask for about my particular questions during pregnancy and after birth, and they all respected and communicated about my preferences for my own care.

Our monthly then weekly appointments were with Mary Bauer and Mary Lentz. Both of these ladies went above and beyond the standard level of care. At each appointment we would come with many, many questions about our pregnancy. They stayed to answer all of our questions! Something else that I believe distinguishes this midwife group from other healthcare providers is they have a phone line available 24/7. I highly recommend these midwifes to any woman! We are truly blessed to find Mary! 10 stars!!

I love her!! She is so nice and sweet and actually cares. She went above and beyond at my appointment. You can tell she loves what she does and she does not judge you and supports your decisions. I’m excited for Mary to deliver my second baby. Highly recommended her.

Oh Mary B!!! Where do I start, she's really sweet. Words can't describe the level of comfortably I felt when I first met her. I only met this woman 1 day before my delivery, when I told her that I wanted a cesarean she lets me know her group only focus on vaginal birth, but she still went through the process of the tests that needed to be done and get me in contact with an OB that will be operating on me. I met her on 2/3/17 less 24 later I went into labor on 2/4/17. She is great!!!!! Thanks

I saw Mary for the last trimester of my pregnancy (I had just moved to the Chicago area). She is attentive, knowledgable, and super friendly. She always took time to answer questions, and I never felt rushed. Two midwives from her group delivered my baby at Saints Mary and Elizabeth Birth Center, and they were awesome! I completely trusted them, and they took fantastic care of me. It was a wonderful experience, and I highly recommend Mary and her midwife group!

We have just welcomed our first child into the world and received excellent care all throughout the pregnancy with Mary and the midwives at Aviva. Mary is attentive, compassionate, and always accessible. We had a harder labor and delivery than we expected, but Mary was a huge comfort to me from induction to cesarean to taking photos in the OR and sharing in our joy for the precious gift of our daughter. I am forever grateful for her care and I know if we have another child, it will be with Mary!
