Testimonial for Kim Turton Palmatary

I was paired up with Kim as a part of a VBAC research study for my second baby. My first labour was not a positive experience, after a prolonged and exhausting go at it, my first baby was delivered by a Cesarean. Although I was a good candidate for a VBAC this time, I was a little skeptical that I could actually deliver vaginally. Kim was organized and in control of the situation from the moment we were paired up one week before my due date. She gave me exercises to help properly position the baby, met with me to discuss my delivery, and on Christmas day assisted delivering a healthy baby boy. I was impressed with Kim's dedication and skill. She was very supportive and encouraging and knew what to say to help me cope. Breathing control and massage helped me out tremendously, and unlike the first time, I felt empowered and confident that I could give birth vaginally. I am so happy to have been paired up with Kim, without her I don't know if I would have had the strenght to deliver vaginally and without an epidural. Thanks Kim!
