Thank you for being by my side as we welcomed Kennedy. I truly could not have done it without you. Your constant support and effort to be present was so admirable. I hope to be a strong mama like you.
I'll always refer to Karen as my angel! From the moment I told her that I was in labor she headed my way, literally supporting me through every single contraction. She was so attentive and never left my side. She gave me all the support and care I needed. She's extremely knowledgeable and I am forever grateful that she was there for me and a part of my birth story.
Our second pregnancy was planned to be a home birth, like our first. When a series of medical complications arose, our home birth was re-named a high risk pregnancy that would end in the hospital. Karen was the only professional that remained constant and caring throughout an uncontrollable turn of events. She was at the hospital within minutes helping me to labor naturally , using techniques that allowed me to let go and breathe. She is the best. She's like a mom. She's like a friend. She gave me the space I needed and she advocated for what I needed. Looking back I cannot imagine Levon's birth without Karen's magical tools and warmth.
