Kelly was our family’s midwife for the homebirth of our two daughters. She possesses the unique ability to create a warm, comfortable setting for the entire family, while also providing direct answers and no-frills guidance. We never left the office feeling like our questions and concerns hadn’t been addressed, and never once did we feel like we weren’t her highest priority (even though she is always juggling multiple clients). She is always up-to-date on the latest ACOG research and recommendations, and has excellent relationships with the greater Santa Cruz birth community including OB/GYNs, doulas, birth class instructors, prenatal acupuncturists, and other midwives. Kelly is also a parent who has given birth in both a hospital and homebirth setting so she knows firsthand what moms are experiencing from start to finish.
