I am an RN who wanted a homebirth, but was a little scared at first about the idea. Karen is phenomenal, the prenatal care was outstanding, her level of caring and skills are so great! She's one of the smartest women I've ever met. My son weighed 10lbs, 10 oz., no complications during the birth, and I didn't even tear thanks to her guidance and expertise! I just can't say enough great things about Karen. I had my older daughter with the Boulder nurse midwives & there is no comparion! I could also go on about how fantastic the postnatal care was!
