Kathleen is simply amazing. She guided us through the whole pregnancy process and explained all of the relevant situations that could have come up. I eventually came to the point that I was 42 weeks pregnant, and my doctor wanted to induce labor. I was able to consult Kathleen about the drugs / medications from a neutral perspective of someone that had seen them in action on a normal basis over the years.
Kathleen was very reassuring that the induction plans were solid, and I was induced at 42 weeks. I had previously chosen to give birth naturally, and I was able to do this with Kathleen’s help. She guided me through the contractions and it made the pain much more manageable. I don’t think I could have tolerated the pain without her.
After delivery I had some complications and she was there for me, my husband and my baby. Her being there for us allowed my husband to come back and see me in recovery, which he wouldn’t have been able to do otherwise.
I can not put in words how much her presencce meant to us. It was the best decision that we made to have her be part of our labor and delivery experience.
