“We were truly honoured to have Bridget Mensah as part of our son’s birth story this past January. During the labour, birth, and the days following, Bridget was the most amazing support for both me and my husband. She was the perfect balance of being a knowledgeable source of information and having a caring and loving demeanour. We cannot wait to have her as part of our team when we have our next child. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for being so special to us and our son." - Love Jenn, Rob and Lincoln
"I met Bridget during my second pregnancy while she was with the midwifery practice I was using. We instantly connected during the few appointments I saw her (as there were 3 other midwives in rotation so I saw each a few times leading up to birth). I was a planned home birth, 2 weeks overdue and ended up in hospital due to thick fluids. Bridget was on call and was with me through my entire 27 hour labour and 30 minute delivery. My birth plan did not go the way I wanted and I was so thankful to have Bridget as my care giver. She was kind and understanding of my want for a natural home birth and the right amount of firm and loving when I needed her to be (without me even knowing I needed it). She was on my side through everything and helped guide me to a successful natural birth. I am so happy to see that she has opened her own practice where she can provide a more personal experience for her future clients."
"I was fortunate to have seen Bridget a handful of times during her time with Haven Midwifery throughout my second pregnancy. At every one of my visits I felt well cared for both physically and emotionally. Bridget always listened to and validated any concerns I had. She did a great job at providing information so that I could make informed choices. Bridget was also the primary midwife during the home delivery of my son, which was nothing short of amazing. She helped maintain a calm, peaceful environment where I felt safe and confident in the well-being of myself and my baby. Bridget is warm, gentle, and an incredibly experienced midwife, who anyone would be lucky to have care for them."
"I was under Bridget's care during my last pregnancy. Her thoughtful, caring nature was always greatly appreciated. She always greeted me with a warm smile at each visit. Bridget's knowledge and expertise were fantastic. Pre birth, her care was outstanding with thorough checks and encouraging words. She even made my preschooler and husband feel welcome. I especially appreciated Bridget's care postpartum. As a mature mom, she helped ease me through this time. Her support made a huge difference through breastfeeding challenges and sleep deprived nights. I would not hesitate to recommend Bridget Mensah to anyone looking for a midwife."
"We we're fortunate enough to have Bridget deliver both of our sons. Throughout both pregnancies she made us feel taken care of and always followed up on any concerns or questions we had. We appreciated her patience and knowledge. It is truly invaluable to have someone like her in your corner during such an important time in your life and we are so grateful.
Thank you so much Bridget!"
“We were fortunate enough to have Bridget to attend to the birth of out oldest daughter. She was a rainbow baby, and like many parents in that position we were a bit anxious. Bridget was wonderfully supportive throughout our entire pregnancy and birth. She is a fantastic educator and I appreciated the way that she listened to and addressed all of our concerns, always taking the time during appointments to be thorough, and never making us feel rushed. Bridget was such a reassuring presence throughout the labour and her relaxed and calm manner was exactly what both my husband and I needed in that time. It is thanks to her management that I achieved my goals of a natural birth and was able to catch my daughter myself. It is a moment that I will treasure the rest of my life. We would highly recommend her services to anyone in search of a midwife.”

"I knew right away I was glad to have Bridget on my Birth team and I followed her to her new practice. She was patient and supportive with all my prenatal questions and her years of experience made me feel so comfortable!
At the hospital, Bridget had such a calm, positive and supportive way of being, I felt like I was with my own mom the entire time! :)
And her follow up appts were so much fun - she was always so excited to see the baby. She also was sure to include my own well-being as well as my husbands, thinking and addressing us all.
Having Bridget as my midwife allowed me to completely let go of any worries and anxiety, trusting her the entire way. She is kind and patient yet knowledgable and experienced. I'd recommend her to anyone looking for a midwife, and I will definitely be back to see her for baby #2. Thank you Bridget!"

"Bridget was the midwife we saw the most during our pregnancy. She was very detailed and thorough in her explanations which was wonderful as this was our first pregnancy. We always felt comfortable and at ease with Bridget. Together we had planned on a natural Home Birth and she was very helpful in helping us to understand the process, acquire the supplies and she went over all the details of what would happen if we ended up needing to go to the hospital. We ended up at the Hospital because of low fluid levels at 41 weeks and Bridget happened to be there already with another family. She balanced her time well between us and I felt she fought hard for the right care and support I needed at the hospital. We ended up in the OR for a Cesearan and I was so grateful she was in there with me. She hugged me when they put the needle in, she fanned my face when I was feeling sick. She was there for ME and my family. I feel that we gained a wonderful friend during this whole experience and I STILL talk about her so fondly to anyone who asks about my birth story and experience. We absolutely loved Bridget ♡ you wont regret having her care for you and your family ♡ "
