Testimonial for Kim Turton Palmatary

Kim went above and beyond during the birth of my second child.

The birth started and stopped many times over the course of 2 days, probably due to my son’s compound presentation (“Superman hand”) although of course we didn’t know that until he came out. She was quick to respond when birthing started up and ever-patient when it slowed down again. Kim helped us make the most of down time by encouraging us to eat and sleep, and when I was SO DONE with that, she was able to suggest several activities and exercises to get the birth moving again. She probably came to our house 5 or 6 times over those two days, and left us alone when it was needed.

She related beautifully to my husband and to the midwives who were attending our home birth. Everyone really came together as a team to support us. Kim has attended hundreds of births which provided us with a perspective on the progress of our birth which we wouldn’t have had otherwise. The midwives were very busy at times with important medical-type things so it was great to have Kim be fully present for us throughout the experience.

Kim’s energy is maternal, sort of like a cool aunt, which made me feel very safe with her. Her gentle sense of humour kept us laughing between contractions. She showed care in every word and gesture.

Her presence was a big part of why our home birth was such a success, despite several hiccups and challenges.

I would recommend her to anyone.

Thank you Kim!
