Testimonial for Kim Turton Palmatary

I had an amazing experience with Kim. After having my first 2 children in the UK, the first being a fairly traumatic birth experience and the second being a c-section as suggested by the medical team, I was certain I would just have another section with my 3rd.  I had many discussions with my doctor about the impending birth and was encouraged to try for a VBAC at Vancouver Women's Hospital. I had used a doula once before and loved the idea of having someone with me throughout the labour and the birth, who could provide not only me with the support I needed but would also provide the same for my husband. Kim, provided exactly that from the moment I phoned to tell her I was being admitted, to the moment I was taken into theatre (following a gruelling 12 hour labour). Kim encouraged my husband with advice on how to support me and was a calm and reassuring presence throughout the labour.  As a wonderful gesture a week or so following my daughter's birth, she visited us at home with her beautifully written account of the labour & birth, something I will treasure forever.
