Testimonials From Families Like Yours

Fiona Butler

Kathy is an absolutely amazing person: her skills and knowledge helped us have 2 wonderful pregnancies and births, and we are so grateful to her for helping us on our journey to parenthood. She deals with the whole person including physical and emotional needs, and we learnt so much from her. She will always hold a special place in our family.Fiona Butler

Lucy O’Donoghue

Kathy was there, across the miles, to help me every step of the way as I prepared to deliver my first baby in Bangkok, Thailand. While there were some great doulas to support me in person, Kathy had that hard-earned midwife expertise to help me sort through the good, bad and ugly of the information and decrees I was getting from the Bangkok hospital system. Taking into account the cultural boundaries and language difficulties, she equipped me to know what battles were worth fighting, and which were worth passing on, from the perspective of someone working in one of the most evidence-based, world class maternity care systems in the world. Kathy’s ‘Oh Baby!’ guide was an absolute bible and my ex-patriate friends from other countries found her candor and down-to-earth, detailed explanations unlike any other mothering books they’d seen before. Kathy is a great accompaniment to any mother who is in a location where she faces any challenges getting the attention, answers and assurance she needs from her maternity care providers. Thanks Kathy for all your support! Lucy O’Donoghue

Tania Hivner

Kathy’s consultative support was life transformational and my husband and I have huge deep respect for her. Kathy’s seeming ‘bottomless pit’ of wisdom in helping us with our daughter, resulted in absolutely positively changing our lives drastically for the better, from the information we got from her. We will forever be grateful to her. Tania Hivner

Emily & Adrian

We just want to say thank you for all your expertise and support through my pregnancy, birth and first weeks at home. There really aren’t words to express our gratitude for all you did … During my pregnancy I felt well informed and empowered that it was really me doing it and making choices rather than being told what to do and what I couldn’t do. Thank you very much. Lots of love, Emily & Adrian
