Testimonial for Kate Dewey & Jane Drichta

Kate attended the homebirths of two of my children. When we met we clicked, and her no-nonsense style of communication was comfortable and easy.  I had a lot on my mind regarding the births, and knowing she was a great communicator took a lot of anxiety away from me.  In fact, her confidence and knowledge and straight forward information made me feel confident & informed, too ~ empowered even.  She also helped prepare the placenta for me just how I wanted it to be eaten in smoothies during my postpartum recovery. It made all the difference in the world, and I had the best & fastest recovery ever.  When our next (4th) child was going to come, I could not imagine birthing without Kate present; I even had dreams about the necessity of her being there.  She even knew when the baby was coming before I was sure, and high-tailed it to my house. I was holding on to a few things before she go there, but shortly after she arrived, I was finally able to let go and let the birthing process/transformation take over. She knew what and how to say to make me listen when I wouldn't hear anyone else, and acted as an interpreter to the midwives as well as making sure my birth plan was followed. Kate is conscientious and respectful, no-nonsense and very loving. Again for this second birth she attended, she prepared the placenta for me, and also made placenta prints as a keepsake for our family.  What a blessing she is in my life!
