Midwives believe in personal, individualized, family- centered care. Midwifery is about listening to women and providing care in a manner that is flexible, empowering, and supportive. Gainesville OBGYN has three wonderful midwives; Cyndi Vista, Ronnie Jo Stringer and Padi Sutherland. Ronnie Jo says, “It is my passion to deliver compassionate care. I am dedicated to empowering women to take an active role in their pregnancy and labor and delivery experience. I believe women should have choices in their care.” Cyndi Vista says, “One of my favorite things about midwifery is the special relationship I develop with each family. I love hearing how each couple met, meeting other family members and getting to know them personally. I feel very blessed and privileged to share the birth experiences of the women and families I care for."
