What People Say About Paula Thacker, CNM
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
2015-I hoped having a midwife for my 2nd birth would mean more support while delivering unmedicated. However during my delivery, & contractions, she kept doing internal checks. It was incredibly painful. After she did this several times, I repeatedly screamed in pain for her to stop & she would not. After finally pulling her hand out of me,she said she was pushing the cervix over my babies head? It was incredibly painful, & traumatic. I couldn’t even look at delivery pics or videos for months.

Very positive experience with Paula Thacker during pregnancy and birth. Plenty of time with me during prenatal apts, answering all my questions (I always had a list) to my satisfaction. She educated me and empowered me. During the birth of my child, Paula was there from when the hospital called her until I had been moved to post-delivery. She supported my desire for natural birth, providing resources during pregnancy and great encouragement during the actual birth. A healing experience for me.

Paula did not help me feel confident in my ability to birth naturally. She did not do a very good job of informing a first time mom. She seemed forgetful and absent minded at times. When I went into labor the On Call Midwife (Julie Jones) told me I should wait to go to the hospital, when my contractions were 3-4 minutes apart. I ignored this and was dialated to a 4 upon arrival. They sent me home and 1.5 hours lated I was ready to push. No midwife came, and Paula didn't arrive in time to deliver

Paula takes the time to hear my concerns and questions, no matter how trivial they may be, and answers them diligently. I never am made to feel like she's in a hurry to get to the next patient, and she investigates any issues with my health thoroughly. When she heard I wanted to do a natural birth, she recommended Hypnobirthing to me! The only downside of a smaller practice is that I don't have access to talk to a nurse all the time for minor problems, but the on-call CNM always calls back.
