Kathy helped me so much during my pregnancy, labor and delivery as a first time mom to twins. During our prenatal visits, she was so informative and made sure to take the time to explain everything clearly and in a way someone who is not medically literate would understand. Labor and delivery was no different and I couldn’t have asked for a better provider. She brought so much experience to the table and I felt reassured working with her. I highly recommend her as a provider!

Kathy was so wonderful. She took care of me as a human. She was interested in making sure I was comfortable during this pregnancy, allowed me time to ask questions, and never once made me feel like I was just another item on her to do list to check off. She was great about addressing my specific concerns since I had decided to have an induction and use an epidural. She was supportive of my decision but still respected my desire to be prepared to deliver unmedicated if necessary. The whole staff was a joy to work with. I could never say enough positive things.

I couldn’t be more grateful for Kathy and her team! I found this office about halfway through my pregnancy when I was looking for a midwife in my area so I reached out to this office to ask a few questions. They had someone from their team reach out to me right away which I was super appreciative of. From my very first appointment to my check up appointment after my baby was born, I felt so comfortable and cared for. Thank you for a great pregnancy and birthing experience!
