“I have always viewed pregnancy and birth as normal life events and when I discovered the role of the certified nurse midwife, I know immediately that this was my calling!
What I love most about my role is that not only do I have an opportunity to develop relationships with women and their families but now I am able to participate in the education and training of a new generation of certified nurse midwives.”
Kate has been a midwife since 1996 and has attended over 3500 births. “I value the midwifery model of care where women are treated with compassion, honor, and respect; a true woman-centered partnership.”
