Testimonial for Kim Turton Palmatary

Kim was amazing! My husband & I were so worried about having to deal with over-involved family members (some of whom wanted to be in the room while I gave birth) that we didn't even have a chance to worry about the birth itself, until it was happening. We figured it would be routine, 12 or more hours of labour, & lots of pain-management options. We imagined that Kim would be there to calmly guide us through this slow, painful process with the tens machine, & to advocate on our behalf when we needed it if doctors were pushing unnecessary medical procedures or dealing with our nosy relatives. In reality, my labour happened so fast, there was no time for strong painkillers nor for any of my relatives to get the news before my daughter was born. The laughing gas did not seem to have any effect on me, but Kim was there to encourage me, & talk me through the pain. Kim also made sure my husband was kept in the loop, with reassurances that everything that was happening was completely normal. She even supported him in deciding to catch our daughter, as she was coming out. That's a moment he will never forget.
