Choosing a midwife was an important decision for me and so glad I made the right choice with Kelly. ‘Trust’ is such a huge requirement in a midwife as not only is it your own health but the health of your baby in someone elses hands. ‘Trust’ is exactly what we got.
I had complications throughout my pregnancy but Kelly was always cautious and if there was any doubt with any test she would always ensure it was followed up to make sure my health and our babies health were never at risk.
The labour was not text book and I was too sick to remember some parts but know I was never once scared as I completely trusted Kelly and knew she would make sure that myself and our baby were safe. My husband remembers how in control and professional Kelly was referring us onto the Doctors for an emergency caeserean when things were not progressing. Kelly visited every day in hospital and when I was readmitted 10 days later, her smiley face always put me at ease.
Kelly has a wealth of knowledge and throughout the preganancy would give us pamphlets, recommend us books on breastfeeding etc so we felt we were beginning our journey as informed parents.
Kelly’s follow up care after the labour was amazing. She was so patient with teaching breast feeding, caring for Breanna and she use to answer lists of questions I would save up for her visit and not once did she make me feel silly for asking anything.
I highly recommend Kelly to anyone. She is a very kind, caring and compassionate person who is truely passionate about her job. A job which I noted can be very emotionally draining when dealing with a number of woman at one time whose hormones are running rampant!! The passion she has for her chosen career shines through with her bubbly personality and sense of humour she has in ensuring that first time parents really get her undivided attention.
Thank you Kelly for being on the journey with us to bring our gorgeous daughter Breanna into the world. It was a wonderful partnership and a first time experience I will always treasure. I can’t wait to have you deliver our future babies.
May your future be full of laughter, love and one day your own bundles of joy!
Love Leesa, Scott and Breanna xx
