"Karen always greeted my baby in my belly and asked permission before touching my belly... Karen truly respects the mother's body, the mother's birth, the family's choices. She educated us on all our options and allowed us to make choices on our own terms from those informed discussions... Karen's knowledge as a massage therapist and a doula transferred well into her midwifery care. During the birth she brought her calming presence, patience, and understanding... Karen was an important part of the birth we wanted for our daughter."
"We met with Karen for all of our prenatal visits and she was available by phone and email for any questions and concerns along the way... She took the time to understand our plan and provide care with our goals in mind... Our younger two children were born at home and she was integral in helping us with the preparation, amazing with the postpartum care of the children and my recovery. Karen was a calm presence during the labor process and her ability to empower a woman was key to helping the babies arrive in a safe, healthy and happy way. Karen treats her clients as if they are family... She provides incomparable service and compassion and we are blessed to have had Karen a part of our children's births."
