Working with Katia was awesome! I loved my experience so much the first time that I followed her to another birthing center when I found out she was there, and I was so relieved once I did finally move care to where she was. Prior to birthing, our prenatal appointments were always something I looked forward to not only because I wanted to make sure my babe was healthy and growing but also it felt like I got to go see a good friend of mine for an hour every week. During labor and delivery she gave great suggestions to keep me most comfortable and guided me to do what I needed to next. She reminded me that the strength I needed was already within me and I could do this! Once my baby girl was born she immediately knew something wasn’t quite right and responded quickly, she resuscitated our little girl and we’re so very thankful we chose to work with Katia. She’s not only a wealth of knowledge but she’s fun to work with as well. Our little Ellie is healthy and happy, and we love her so very much! I’ve joked around and said the only reason I’d have a 3rd child is to be able to work with Katia again, so she’s very highly recommended by this momma!

I loved working with Katia, she is a wonderful midwife! She was very supportive and helpful through all my prenatal appointments and I especially appreciated her knowledge of natural supplements to help deal with all the many symptoms of pregnancy. I feel she is very competent and well trained to deal with whatever comes up during labor and delivery. When I went into labor with my second she arrived quickly to my home and was very calm and very attentive. I felt she had the whole situation under control and was equipped with many tools to help me in any way I needed. She was encouraging, validating, and empowering me through the whole process of pregnancy and delivery and I absolutely recommend her wholeheartedly. I am planning on using her again if we have another baby :)

During pregnancy, Katia addressed all of our questions and concerns in a calm, professional manner. With each step and decision we made, Katia always provided as much information as possible, providing us with all of the pros and cons to fully prepare us for the birth of our baby and beyond. Katia created a very nurturing environment which gave us the confidence and support to make the birth of our daughter a very natural and positive experience for all of us.

I know this is like half a year late, but I still wanted to express my thanks for the part you played in getting our little daughter here. You were the one, who with your calm confidence and obvious knowledge, put my husband at ease with a birthing center natural birth. Thank you for your quiet kindness and endless patience with my questions and the birth itself. You have helped bring into the world, a tiny sweet spirit that has given me more joy than I have ever experienced. May God bless you and your family for the work you do!

Thank you for everything you did for me Saturday. That day was the hardest and most beautiful day of my life and I couldn’t have done it without you. You have such a special place in our hearts. Thank you for your strength, knowledge, and confidence in me. You are truly amazing and I am so happy you were my midwife.

Thank you so much for your support, concern, and love! The birth of our son was by far the most empowering experience I’ve ever had and I really couldn’t have done it without you :)

After the closing of our birth center in Alaska, we were extremely anxious to find somewhere we felt comfortable. Thank you for creating that place for our family. You have been such a great support with your knowledge and kindness. We are so grateful to have had you as our midwife. Best wishes to you and your family. We will truly miss you.

Thank you so much for being a part of our pregnancy and delivery. We loved getting to know you and having your sound advice. As intense and sometimes uncertain as labor can be, we knew we were in good hands!
— Tera B.
We feel like you pretty much took this entire journey with us because just about every appointment was with you. Thank you so much for everything you did to take such good care of us. From listening to me complain about my in-laws, to me complain that my baby was taking forever to get here. I never felt judged, just listened to. You are forever a part of such a special and memorable experience for our family, etched forever in our family history. My husband and I are still gushing over what an amazing experience our son’s birth was. We aren’t the most mushy emotional people but it’s hard not to be a little towards the people who helped you create and have such an amazing experience! Again thanks so much! Hopefully in a year or two down the line we’ll get to work with you guys again!
— Kris M.
Thank you for such a great experience with our first baby. It’s been a hard process but you brought sunshine and expertise, and I am really grateful you were my midwife. I just love you. Thank you for your care, your concern, and for being there every time I needed help.
— Cassidy W.
Thank you so much for all the wonderful care my daughter and I received over the past several months. I can’t imagine my labor and delivery having gone more smoothly! It was such a great experience and we will most definitely use your team again with future pregnancies. You are all wonderful!
— Kara P.
We wanted to thank you for the outstanding experience we’ve been able to have, both in pregnancy and in labor. It was so nice to never have to wonder if our goals and plans would clash. It was especially reassuring during the birth. Your calm presence helped set the tone for a more relaxed labor. Everything about the birth went so smoothly and well. We really couldn’t have dreamed of anything better. Thank you for your care and expertise. Not sure we could have done it without you. We’ve loved seeing you every step of the way!
