"I can’t say enough about these wonderful women. KathRyn and Lisa are truly amazing. I was so blessed to have them in my life, and in helping me bring in new life. They made me feel special, important, loved, cared for, and capable. They are present, strong, sensitive, knowledgeable, empathetic, understanding, empowering, and silly.
"What a gift it was to feel like someone was really taking care of me. Especially being a mother and giving away all I had. I felt like I could let go of all my fear and stress, and know that I had a team behind me, and that I would be taken care of.
"After a very hard and long first birth, full of vomit, and ending up in the hospital with an epidural, I was very afraid to do it again. These ladies welcomed me in, and were so good at making me believe in my body and myself again. I was always excited to go to my check ups. It was like having a therapy appointment and chatting with really good friends all in one. I really trusted these women. I tried to let go and put the process all in their hands, which was really helpful. KathRyn and Lisa are amazing doctors, mothers, therapists, teachers, nutritionists, friends, mentors, confidants, and of course, midwives.
"During the birth of my son, they really took control, which I needed, and led me through. They were so present and aware, and sensitive to how much to get involved and intervene. I was ready to go to the hospital numerous times, and kept saying over and over again, “I can’t go through another contraction”. I really felt like I couldn’t do it again after almost every contraction I had. They assured me that I was already doing it. They always seemed to know what I needed and when.
"They were very on top of it and professional when my son wasn’t breathing right away, and really took the time to get us all settled in after it was over. They remained very available for weeks after my son was born, and I still call on them from time to time for information and input. I am forever grateful to have had this experience with these midwives. I could never have done it without them. I always felt seen, heard, understood, safe, and validated.
"What lovely women. Anyone would be lucky to have KathRyn and Lisa on their side!
"I was really sad when it was all over. I wish I could keep going to my appointments forever."
