Kate is a member of the Birth Network of Santa Cruz and has trusted relationships with many of the midwives (home and hospital) and Obstetricians in Santa Cruz.  Having worked as a doula and being on-call for Birth Point, Kate has attended many births and has developed a profound respect for the unique process that arrives for each woman and her family. 
 
She is a mother of two young children,  both delivered in Santa Cruz (one via Cesarean section,  the other by un-medicated VBAC).  The experience of growing, birthing and raising her children in this community has deepened her practice and understanding of the unique nature of this incredible community.
