Testimonial for Kim Turton Palmatary

My husband and I were so thrilled to have Kim as a member of our birth team.   We were trying for a VBAC and the fact that Kim has had a few of her own vaginal births after cesarean helped us feel more optimistic and relaxed about the whole process. Kim was amazing!  She took the time to meet with us and really listen to our hopes and fears surrounding our baby's birth.  She provided a great deal of very useful advice both before and after the birth (e.g. suggested teas to drink, information about placental encapsulation, and advice about post partum care).

Kim had told us that she had one day around our due date when she would be unavailable and that she had arranged back up doula support for us for that time.  Of course labour began the night before that.  Despite Kim having a very important personal engagement the next day, she stayed up all night with us to help us bring our baby into the world and we can't thank her enough for that.

Throughout the labour and birth process, Kim was able to anticipate both my needs and the needs of my husband. She ensured that things were on track and that both of us were taken care of.  It was so reassuring to have her at the hospital with us as I was worried that the hospital environment would impact on my ability to focus on what had to be done.  Kim helped to keep both my husband and I focused and facilitate anything that needed to occur.
