About Kim

I started studying midwifery in 1981 while completing my degree in

         Medical Technology/Biology. When I was pregnant with my first child,
         I discovered that homebirth was an option.  After three wonderful
         homebirths with a direct entry midwife, I started my own training.

I enrolled in a very thorough distance education course and in 1994,
         started attending homebirths as an apprentice. I've been attending
         homebirths ever since.

As a La Leche League Leader since 1994, I've been counseling breastfeeding
         women in both a group setting and individually. I was also a counselor with
         Nursing Mothers' Council.

Since my homeschooled children have become adults, I have been able to
         expand into other areas,  such as working as a birth doula,
         childbirth educator and hypnotist.

Over the years, I have enjoyed teaching midwifery students and helping train
         apprentices, while I also continue to learn. I hope to be able to contribute
         what I've learned to helping make birth kinder and gentler for moms and babies.
