Kasey and Holly were absolute angels during our entire pregnancy, delivery, and postpartum. My older girls always felt included and looked forward to their visits. I always felt loved, listened to, and respected from pregnancy to postpartum. I couldn’t have asked for two better women to attend our sweet little boy’s delivery at home.
"Words fall short in trying to express how grateful I am for Kasey and Holly’s care throughout my two pregnancies, births and postpartum journeys. They offered the kind of intimate, empowering and evidence based care I was looking for, and helped facilitate the most empowering birthing experience. After both a hospital transfer and a home birth, they helped our whole family adjust to the postpartum period, and have made me as the birthing parent feel truly seen and nurtured as a new mother. They will forever hold a very special place in our hearts."
"Kasey and Holly are wonderful midwives. I chose to work with them for both my second and third births. They made me feel comfortable and empowered through each pregnancy and birth experience. Each time we met for a visit they always brought their positive energy. Kasey has such a calming, grounding presence, and Holly is a nurturing soul. Their skills and knowledge work together well as a team. They also put my partner and family at ease with their initial questions about homebirths. They answered all of our questions and helped everyone feel confident. Having them be a part of both of these transformative experiences has been a gift!"
"Holly and Kasey were my midwives throughout my entire pregnancy, birth and postpartum with my third child. During prenatal visits, which took place in my home, they were incredibly attentive and gentle, positive and reassuring, friendly yet still very professional. I looked forward to my prenatal appointments because I completely trusted them. This pregnancy went past my due date, and I felt well informed about my options yet I didn’t feel pressured for interventions. When my labor kicked in at 41 weeks, Kasey and Holly joined me and my husband & two sons for what was a very fast, intense, beautiful and intimate birth of our third son. I labored and gave birth in our bathtub and Holly was kneeling on the floor next to me, holding my hands, offering words of encouragement and a shoulder to lean on anytime I needed it. Through it all they kept checking mine and the baby’s heart rate and other vital signs, but I cannot tell you how frequently because I wasn’t noticing it at all – they were incredibly gentle and respectful. After my son was born and I processed it a bit and gathered some strength to get up, they helped me to my bed and we waited for the birth of the placenta, which happened shortly thereafter. Then the bonding was simply magical - I remember being surrounded by so much love, it filled the room and my whole being. I was cuddling my new son and his brothers were adoring his little toes and fingers while Holly and Kasey checked my perineum and performed the newborn exam. It was all so perfect and I couldn’t wait to see them again and hug them during my follow up postpartum appointments. I felt that both my baby and I were in such good hands and was very grateful to have had Holly and Kasey as our midwives."
"I knew as soon as I spoke to Kasey and Holly that they would be the team I’d go with. They were knowledgeable, respected my wishes and were so gentle and caring throughout all of our appointments. When labor came, they really showed me what they were made of. They were steadfast, and gentle, non invasive, and advocated on my behalf when we had to relocate to the hospital. Being able to do the majority of my labor at home with my team was exactly what I and my babe truly needed. Having their expertise by my side was crucial in allowing me to feel safe at home and strong enough to continue. Even after my son was born, the after birth care was so genuine and was something I didn’t know I needed, but looking back was so influential in how I entered my new journey into Motherhood. Having them truly felt like having a birthing community by your side. It was truly a delight to work with both of them and I would hands down choose them again and again!"
