“Absolutely amazing! Dr. Schmidt is so nice and laid back she set my mind at ease throughout the entire pregnancy. Unfortunately we had to have an emergency C-section because the umbilical chord was wrapped around his neck twice, but I’m so so thankful she was there. She looked at his charts and instantly knew she needed to take action and got him out very quickly. After the fact, I realize how south the situation could have gone but she did an amazing job of keeping me calm during the ordeal and helped me relax. We will definitely be going back for baby number 2! Baby is very healthy now thanks to Dr. Schmidt! Born 8/25/16” – Lacy Hamilton
