Cynthia Jaffe: A forward-looking Hometown Hero.
“Cynthia has been in my life since day one. I had the privilege of being one of the first babies she helped deliver on Whidbey Island. Twenty years later I am blessed with my son Brayden, and Cynthia was with me every step of the way. To bring love and life into this world is the definition of a true hero. She brought happiness to my family with her gentle, knowledgeable wisdom, and for that she is my hero.”
“Twenty years ago Cynthia was my midwife and helped so much to center me and keep me unafraid when my daughter, Anna, was born. It was wonderful to have her help my daughter when she in turn gave birth, where she also had a wonderful experience because of the expert and kind Cynthia. She’s amazing!”
—Harriet Behncke, Langley
“Cynthia amazes me. I have the privilege of working closely with Cynthia as a birth assistant. Cynthia offers meticulous care to her clients during all aspects of pregnancy, birth and beyond. I have watched her coach, soothe, direct and manage each and every unique birthing experience.
She is a true educator, advocating that women have a choice and can influence the way they are treated during labor and delivery. Most importantly she teaches women that they can influence the way their child arrives in the world.”
