06/04/14 5 5 5 5 As a birth doula, I had a chance to experience Donna at work first hand in the delivery room. She is amazing!! She was caring, compassionate and very accessible throughout the labor and delivery. Unlike other caregivers, who you only see at the pushing stage, Donna was present and providing personal care while the mother labored in the hospital. It was great to work with her as a team, ensuring that the mother-to-be achieve the birth experience of her dreams--a natural, un-medicated birth. I look forward to working with her again in the future! If you are looking for a midwife for your birth, look no further.  Respond

18/03/14 5 5 5 5 Shortly after our miscarriage, my husband and I were blessed to find out that we were expecting. I was fearful of changing practices and decided to stay with my ob gyn. However as my care progressed I knew that the practice of a midwife was more in line with my birthing plan. I then met Donna Tabas. What attracted me to her was her knowledge and professional experience but her warm and supportive spirit felt like home to us. Due to the anxiety and fear that I carried from my miscarriage, I had moments that were challenging but Donna understood and continued to guide me with patience and a gentle hand...always reassuring. Donna helped our family realize our dream of welcoming our daughter in a loving and gentle environment at Holy Name Hospital. She was our fierce advocate, our guardian, as well as our friend. I highly and undoubtedly recommend Donna Tabas.  Respond

06/03/14 5 4 5 5 I had an OB for my first son (and ended up being induced and had an epidural), and knew I wanted a different experience for my second. I could not have been happier with the care I received from Donna. She is warm, caring, but also professional. My in-home prenatal appointments with her were never rushed and often went over an hour. Donna also was with me just about every minute of my son's (completely natural) birth and supported me in ways I never imagined -- the kind of attention, caring, and support I never got from my OB. She treated me with respect, she listened to me, explained everything and answered every question. My family is now complete, but if I were to ever have another child, I would have Donna as my midwife again in a heartbeat. While I did have to pay $3,000, I received close to half of that back from my insurance company.

26/02/14 5 4 5 5 So thankful to have had Donna as our midwife! As a FTM it was very helpful having the extra time to spend with Donna discussing my pregnancy and planning for labor and delivery that you would never get with an OB. She was always available by phone or email for any question I had. She really makes it her priority to ensure both you and your partner are constantly informed about your pregnancy and that everyone is on the same page when it comes to your birth preferences. Once we had our baby she was still constantly available to us if we needed her. She was a great encouragement when I was struggling with breastfeeding and helped me to get back on track and now breastfeeding is a breeze and a success! She is truly a wonderfully caring and kind woman. Not to mention I loved delivering at Holy Name Hospital (private rooms!!!). She made pregnancy and birth a joyous and worry free experience!

18/02/14 5 5 5 5 Donna Tabas was a miracle find for me. I was having such a hard time with my pregnancy and felt ignored by my GYN. I craved the one-on-one, intimate relationship that only a midwife can give. Not only was Donna quick to respond, but she was available at any time, day or night, with information, knowledge and even small chit-chat. She never rushed me out of her office and would even make home visits for appointments! I had the luxury of hearing my baby's heartbeat for the first time, at home, in my own bed. Thanks to Donna, I am able to describe childbirth using words such as romantic, intimate, relaxing, soothing, amazing and miraculous. I know she will work just as hard and be just as dedicated to YOU and your baby. She is definitely one of a kind! =)  Respond

18/02/14 5 5 5 5 Donna is a highly skilled, intelligent, kind, and thoughtful lady who was a key ingredient to my natural intervention-free & epidural-free births. I had very positive birth experiences and highly recommend her. Not only does she offer house visits (soo helpful in the latter months when schlepping around is more challenging), she never rushes you during appointments, and provides way more information and guidance than an OB/GYN would.

21/03/13 5 2 5 5 Donna is extremely knowledgeable, attentive, and responsive. I can contact her any day of the week, at just about any time with a concern or a question. She is warm and caring, but also professional and thorough. I am using my out of network benefits with Oxford, so I'm unsure what the final bill will be after the birth.
