Testimonial for Kim Turton Palmatary

My husband and I used Kim as our doula for the birth of our son on May 10th 2015. We were a little hesitant at first to hire a doula as my husband wanted it to be  a meaningful, intimate experience for the two of us and was worried he might be "lost in the shuffle" if we hired a doula. Due to our desire to have a home birth for our first child and feeling a little uneasy about our midwives, we decided to go for it. After meeting with Kim we felt super comfortable and knew we would be in good hands. I'm so thankful that we made the decision to hire Kim as I'm certain I would have ended up in the hospital as a result of fear had I not. She was a constant support for my husband and I, and was never overbearing. She let me know that everything I was experiencing was completely normal, and helped my husband to be the best support that he could be. She helped me to remain calm and determined during one of the most intense experiences of my life. I'm so proud and happy to say that I birthed a healthy son in the comfort of my home without the use of any medication or interventions. We are so thankful to Kim for helping us to achieve the experience that we wanted. I would strongly recommend her to anyone considering hiring a doula or feeling a little apprehensive about their birth. Also, she has a birth pool you can borrow (which I would highly recommend) which is a huge bonus and saves the time and money of having to rent one!!!
