I am a Licensed Certified Professional Midwife. I have an Associates of Liberal Arts, a Bachelor's of Science in Family Social Services, as well as an Associates of Midwifery from the National College of Midwifery, in Taos, New Mexico. During my time as a student midwife, I apprenticed in five different states, with six unique and knowledgeable out-of-hospital midwives.
There is no doubt that birth is a key life event that is very powerful, yet at the same time, informed and gentle. Birth is a natural, normal, physiological life event. I believe that every woman should have the opportunity to access the highest quality healthcare which includes empowering them to make decisions about their care. Part of my responsibility as a midwife and doula is to give each client personalized attention and to provide the most up-to-date and evidence-based information and healthcare to her during the time in my care.
Words from Clients...
"Can I say AMAZING? Kelly was a wealth of knowledge for my husband and I’s first everything when it came to having our little Synthia! Her 10-week series of childbirth classes answered any and every question we had. Kelly has experienced it all and is so comfortable to talk with that none of our questions went unanswered, not even the questions that may be a bit embarrassing to discuss with your closest friends."
"The experience we had with Kelly Martin was nothing but exceptional. We had never heard of a doula before and didn’t know what to expect. We met with Kelly Martin for the first time and were blown away by not only her professionalism but her ability to connect with us as a couple expecting our first child. Kelly gave us all of the information we could have ever wanted or needed in regards to pregnancy and birth."
“Kelly attended the births of both of our children and she was instrumental in helping us to facilitate the natural birthing experience that we were hoping for. Her calm demeanor and ability to work and interface well with our health care team helped to make a calm atmosphere for our births. Kelly was on hand to provide support and guidance when needed, which was a huge comfort, particularly in being able to give my husband a break when needed."
“Kelly is amazing! She met with me when I was pregnant to make sure I was comfortable and well informed. All the paperwork and information she gave was very helpful for making informed decisions and preparing for a natural labor. The aromatherapy, prenatal massage and DVDs that she gave me were just a great bonus to the info. Kelly stayed up through the night with me when I labored! She coached my husband to help at early morning hours!"
“My husband and I cannot say enough wonderful things about Kelly. This is our second child, Our first birthing experience was far less than desirable. We decided we wanted the birthing experience God had intended for us, completely natural. Throughout the pregnancy Kelly was 100% available to us, she answered questions, gave us resources and was so encouraging and supportive when I started to question my ability. My labor started and she was exactly what we needed to have the baby."
