I was terrified about being pregnant and becoming a mother. I was never really excited until about the end of my pregnancy. I was afraid I wouldn’t love Willem or being a mom. I thought I was going to be bad at it. I was never the type of woman that was daydreaming about becoming a mother. Now, I wouldn’t have it any other way.
As far as midwifery was concerned…I had my reservations only because I was uneducated. When I did my research and then had my first visit, I thought as I was leaving the office “what a difference! I feel like I just made a friend, and I don’t have any questions.” This was a huge relief, as I had transferred care from an OBGYN.
Katherine was patient, kind, loving, funny (which was very important to me), and helpful in so many ways. She listened, she let me cry, she hugged me, physically did whatever she could to help relieve pain, never left my side, and most importantly she chose to be there for us even when she wasn’t on shift. That will forever stick with me.
You won’t regret hiring Katherine.
