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."

I’m so glad that I am a patient of Dr. Cotter! He took the time to get to know me and take care of my medical needs, as well as address any concerns I had. Dr. Cotter is a great doctor that is professional, yet he has a refreshing sense of humor which helped put me at ease and make me feel welcome and comfortable in his office. His personal and friendly bedside manner was such a refreshing change from the norm. More doctors today should live by his example.

There are several biological reasons for this.

With three obstetricians and three midwives, our obstetrics practice is the perfect size – it’s large enough to deliver excellence across the spectrum of women’s’ health needs, and yet small enough to feel like family. At Gainesville OBGYN, we believe that your involvement in your own birth process is the first and most important step toward a safe and satisfying delivery. To that end, we help you develop a birth plan that is consistent with your own needs and goals. No two patients are alike, so we individualize our approach to labor and delivery for each woman.
