What Others Say

I would never be able to thank you enough for you’ve done for me.  Your help during K and D’s births was so wonderful and your patience during the paranoid pregnancy of 2017 was amazing.

I’ve said many times that I could never have done any of this without you.  I’ve always amended that statement to say that it’s not strictly true; they would’ve come out one way or another eventually.  But it wouldn’t be the same.  I would never, will never, could never possibly want to do this without you and I hope with all my heart I never have to.

I’ll always love you and I’m SO glad I named my baby for you.

Thank you for the excellent care you provided (as always!) during my pregnancy and delivery of baby S. I count myself very blessed to have you as my midwife.  I appreciate the time and attention you give during and after the birth, that you are never in a rush and that you always make me feel like the most important person in the world during the whole process.  Thank you for loving the work you do and for doing it with excellence!

D also wanted me to tell you he is impressed with how easily flexible you are when things don’t got as planned and you always remain calm and patient 🙂

I wanted to thank you again for helping make my first birth experience amazing and everything I wanted it to be. I am a very strong believer in our natural ability to give birth and you helped with that. My pregnancy was a blessing and I asked God everyday to show up when the day came to give birth and He did. I knew I could not do any of it without Gods help and He not only helped me tap into the strength I needed to get through the process, He blessed me with and showed up in you. We were very glad that you were with us. We will definitely come to you for the next one if we can. Thank you so much for everything. We really appreciate everything you did for us … I wanted to make sure you knew how much we appreciate you.

M turns six next week; wow time flies! The experience of pregnancy and childbirth were such a gift with your care and expertise. Thanks so much for doing what you do! I’ll always remember the feeling of that wonderful morning welcoming our baby in the comfort of our home.
My best to you and yours…

It’s national midwife week! I had {Karen} for all 3 of my home births. I can’t even begin to imagine my births without her. The one on one support and attention a midwife gives is nothing like I have ever experienced in any doctors office. The hours spent together during the most amazing life experience are not something I really wanted to spend with a stranger, and Karen has become not only a midwife but a friend.

I was so glad to have you with us for our home birth!  It was a great experience and R is perfect.  Thank you very  much for all your time and help!

Thanks so much Karen! You are the most awesome midwife EVER & I was so lucky to share A & A’s births with you. Thank you for your kind, compassionate & supportive care through these high points in my life!

Ive been thinking about you today and just wanted to say thank you for helping me bring my baby girl (who’s not much of a baby anymore) into this world 2 years ago. Thank you for doing what you do!!

Thank you dear Karen, for your gentle, loving support through the fantastic waterbirth of our son A on this date 8 years ago. You are a wonderful person and I will forever be grateful for the exceptional care that you provided to me through my 2nd & 3rd births. Wish I would have known you for the 1st one!

Thank you so very much for all your conscientious care you provided for me for another wonderful pregnancy and home birth.  You have been such a blessing in our lives.  I cannot imagine delivering my boys in any other setting.  It has been so wonderful having you deliver all of our children, knowing you are so experienced, caring and trustworthy.  I am so appreciative of your time, talent and much patience with me during labor.  And all of that goes double for D, who would do just about anything to avoid having one of our children in a hospital setting 🙂  Thank you for basically being an intermittent part of our extended family these past five years.  I hope to have the privilege of repeating the blessing a couple of years from now, Lord willing.

Karen! It’s J’s birthday today and I think of you. Thank you for being an AMAZING midwife for the two of us! We couldn’t have done it without you. 🙂 ~Love from all of us~

Thanks for everything.  You truly are a blessing from God.  This was one of the best experiences of my life.  When we’re ready for number three we’ll most definitely be calling!divider copy

Our birth story continues to amaze people, and G loves to tell it to anyone who will listen! We are so grateful for the confidence in ourselves that you helped us to achieve. You are awesome! Thank you! I know God directed us to you to prepare us for an awesome birth experience!divider copy

You are the most amazing woman.  We wouldn’t have been able to have done this without you. You are our angel!  Thank you for your unconditional support and spectacular professionalism.  You will always have a special place in our hearts.divider copy
Just a little something to say thanks for all that you do.  It is such a blessing to have someone not only so trustworthy, but so caring to help bring your children into this world.  You’re just amazing!divider copy

We just wanted to tell you how great our birth was because of you!  We are so happy to have had N at home – we can’t really even put it into words!  You are a wonderful person and midwife (the rumors are true)!  Thank you so much for making it such a great day! We all love you and everything you do!divider copy
You guys are phenomenal! I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect delivery! You were there through the whole labor patiently waiting for the moment to come. I didn’t have to lift a finger the whole time; you made me feel like a queen! I am so thankful you guys were there to help me, and now I have beautiful memories of my first child’s birth. You can bet we’ll give you a call when we’re ready for our second!  Thank you again…divider copy

Thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to have a natural birth.  It was wonderful!  I will never forget what you’ve done for me. Thanks!!divider copy

Not sure that I can even express in words how grateful I am for you.  You are excellent at what you do and I hope you do not lose that touch.  Just as little B is a gift from God, so are you. Thank you and then some, for everything, everything, everything.  What a wonderful experience.  We are so indebted to you for your involvement in our lives  Your care, concern and kindness made B’s birth an amazing experience.divider copy

A simple ‘thank you’ doesn’t seem adequate in expressing our appreciation for all you did to help bring our precious J into the world.  Having you there reassuring me and giving me the confidence to give birth at home gave us a wonderful experience.  I’m so thankful for such an easy birth and quick recovery.

J is beautiful, growing and healthy – a blessed gift of God.  I love recalling and retelling others of our special home birth.

Thank you oh-so-much for your professionalism and for your calm, easy-going manner.  You are all that midwives should be!  I wish all women could have such an easy, calm time of giving birth.divider copy

There are so many feelings wrapped around J’s birth that I’m not sure I will ever be able to express them all.  I am so grateful for you. I am convinced that nothing would’ve been the same without your care. In many ways we did not know what to expect and I was surprised by all I was feeling during labor… but having you there was such a comfort to me.  You have a true ministry.  Helping new lives enter the world.  Thank you for you respect of that process in an age when natural care is not popular. I loved our birth experience… I. loved it… and we can’t tell enough people how wonderful it was.  Our hearts overflow with thankfulness when we think of you.  I believe they always will.   God’s blessings…divider copy

I want to thank you for all that you did for A during her pregnancy and delivery of S. Your gift of being a midwife is a blessing to us and we are grateful that you could help us. Thank you.divider copy

Thank you for taking care of me during my pregnancy.  Having a homebirth was so beautiful.  I am so glad I got to experience that.  Your job is so important!  You will never know how much of a blessing you are to us.  We love you.divider copy

There are few things in life you remember forever.  The birth of S is one of them.  Getting the chance to share this wonderful time with you means more to our family than you will ever know.  Much love…divider copy

I know I’ve said ‘thank you’ but I want to say it again. Thank you so much for your care and all you have done for me. Giving birth to G at home was a wonderful, beautiful and amazing thing. I only I had done a homebirth with J. It felt like an awesome invention of God’s creation and not a ‘procedure’ of man. I felt important. I loved having freedom and the say-so of how I wanted to deliver my child. I’m glad to know the person who cared for me and my newborn was a sweet, loving wonderful midwife who didn’t treat me any different because of my financial status but made me feel good about my birthing experience. Thank you…thank you…thank you!divider copy

Thank you so much for all of your help with the birth of our baby girl!  Thank you so much for helping me through every contraction.  Thank you for your sweet smile, encouraging words and kindness!divider copy

I still feel like we owe you a million thanks for everything. Not only for the gifts but for making our dream of having L at home possible. Needless to say, we couldn’t have done it without you! We’re looking forward to baby number three, as long as you’re still around!

Thank you again for everything you’ve done for us and for being a wonderful friend.divider copy

I wish I would’ve had your care from day one. I could tell from visit one that you actually love your chosen profession. When I was born I realized it went much farther than that. Some people are just meant to do certain things in life and I must say you are wonderful at what you do. I wish every woman was able to receive the same level of care I received. It was wonderful!
