Testimonials

"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. ..."

"My third birth, a homebirth VBAC, was made PERFECT by the assistance of these two beautiful women. I felt heard and safe during my birth. We had a few hiccups and I always felt like we worked as a team. My Dad was at my birth and said whenever he got nervous, he looked up to Lisa and KathRyn, they always seemed calm so he stayed calm. I would almost have another baby to have my visits with them again... almost ;-)"

"During pregnancy and especially labor, KathRyn and Lisa handled every situation with care, patience and experience, for which I will always be thankful. You could not ask for a better team.”

"Words do not describe how lucky I feel to have been shepherded through pregnancy, labor and birth with such wise and compassionate women. Being able to work with KathRyn and Lisa was a huge gift to our family. I hope they continue to work together for a long, long time.” - Annabele G.

​"I have never received health care like I did from KathRyn and Lisa. I switched midwives at 30 weeks because I wanted more individual attention and working with KathRyn and Lisa offered just that. Every part of me, my husband and my little one within was lovingly cared for at each prenatal visit, during our birth and in the postpartum visits. I loved how broad the range of their skills was. They were facile and fluent with Western medicine, Ayurveda, herbalism, homeopathy and nutrition... ”

"I had my 3rd homebirth, of my 3rd daughter, with KathRyn and Lisa​ as my midwives. They were absolutely amazing and everything my family needed.  During my pregnancy I really looked forward to my appointments. They were very good at tuning in to me, listening to me, and offering REALLY good advice...emotionally and physically. I always left smiling with new tools and ideas to help me through each phase of pregnancy.... "- Jackie Y.

“You are a great team. Very complementary partners, with different strengths, which is why I chose you to midwife my children. As a health provider myself, I value your professionalism, your keen clinical eye, your grace and gentle bedside manner.” - Rebecca P.

"We worked with Lisa and KathRyn during my pregnancy from about 8 weeks on. When we found out it was twins at 20 weeks, we decided to get continual midwifery care and have them be my doulas at the hospital. They also provided postpartum care. I don't even know how to adequately put into words how amazing they were/are. I felt so seen and taken care of in every way through our whole journey. I eagerly awaited each visit as a time to have all my questions answered and my experience validated..."- Beth S.

"Birth can be magical, scary, beautiful and at times uncomfortable. You don’t know how your journey will be until you are in it. The goal is to let go and allow the process to unfold until you are holding your baby in your arms. The best way to let go is to trust those that surround you in those moments. KathRyn and Lisa have a dynamic working relationship that you get to know, understand, and love with each meeting throughout your pregnancy. They also use these meetings to get to know you and your partner and use their intellect and intuition to create a safe birthing space that is all about you..."  - Amber N.

"When I was pregnant with my first child, Aiden, I really wanted to have a home birth and by some wonderful miracle I found KathRyn and she took incredibly good care of me during my pregnancy, at the birth and after.  During my long labor she was able to come to our house and just be there with us..."- Shifra H. 

"My first attempted homebirth with another midwife was a 45-hour affair that ended with stalled labor, a transfer to the hospital, pitocin, an epidural, a posterior birth, and an extremely rough recovery. So I was understandably nervous about my second pregnancy and labor, and I was on the fence about whether to even attempt a second homebirth. But when my husband and I met with KathRyn and Lisa, we knew they were the team for us. They were immediately enthusiastic about my second labor and birth outcome being different from my first; their positivity and unwavering support shaped the experience of my pregnancy and delivery..."- Lynda H.

"KathRyn and Lisa are amazing! Rhythm’s birth was anything but what we planned. As my second child, I figured this labor would be faster..."

 

- Kat K.

"Lisa and KathRyn were amazing with our entire family, even my older daughter. My husband loved coming to appointments with me because he loved them so much. Even when we had a massive tragedy with our unborn child they stayed right by our side..."- Lakshmi L.

"After having a wonderful home birth with our first it was a no-brainer to do it again with our second. However, we weren't sure about going with our original midwives so after hearing rave reviews from both our chiropractor and a dear friend we met with Lisa and KathRyn. On the practical side we got 2 midwives for the price of one, and I really loved that they don't take as many births per month as some other midwife teams do..."- Molly A.
