"In giving birth my attention was pulled inside forcibly by something naturally wild, hot, raw, and primitive....something so powerful that my only choice was to surrender." - Kristin Luce
"I believe that Kim is the best Midwife in North Texas. My wife and I have interviewed others, and haven't found anyone that comes close. If you are looking for a midwife in North Texas, you owe it to yourself to talk to the wonderful folks of A Blessed Birth Midwifery!" - E.W.
"I have met many midwives over thecourse
of my life, most of them are awesome, but Kim is the master of her
trade. I felt amazingly informed and comfortable before, during, and
after my pregnancy, I was sad when the journey was over. I would re-live
every moment of my baby's arrival in a heartbeat (not something women
usually say of labor and delivery), seriously it was one of the best
days of my life. The level of professionalism blended with excellent
personal care was outstanding. Her assistants were so gentle and so kind
to my husband and me. I loved everyone I worked with through A Blessed
Birth Midwifery, I felt they were a part of my family. She is the
best person for the job if you are looking for a home birth experience,
I highly recommend her and her midwifery staff!" - M.A.
"Kim Watkins was a great blessingto
me, our new baby, my husband, and our whole family as we traveled
through pregnancy and birth together. In what was a drawn out labor (two
weeks!), Kim kept us educated and calm, and prayed for us as we waited
for the day our baby would be born. The actual birth was such a
beautiful experience, and I will forever be grateful for the
non-intrusive way Kim guided me through pushing and receiving our baby
into my husbands arms. I would recommend her with no reservations, and
in fact would ENCOURAGE you to call her if you are pregnant or trying to
conceive." - M.K.
"I was blessed to have Kim Watkinsas my midwife for my last pregnancy. Having trust and confidence in your midwife
is one of the most vital parts to having a a successful out of hospital
birth experience-- and the knowledge, discernment and experience that
Kim brings to her births allows for families to feel peaceful about their
choices. I always felt that Kim genuinely cared for my emotional health
as well as my physical health. She brought an element to my birth team
that FAR exceeded my expectations--and I want everyone who asks for a
recommendation for a midwife to have the amazing experience that I
did! I don't think you can locate any past client of Kim's who doesn't
sing her praises LOUDLY!! We all love her--and think she is by far one
of the bestmidwives in North Texas!' - L.S.
"Kim is a wonderful midwife to workwith. She blessed my life by serving as a midwife
for my fourth child after a previous rough birth. She was very caring
and understanding. We were very much on the same page with everything.
She was very happy to use a fetoscope with me. Very hands off. Always
checked with me if something was okay or not, and always had my consent
before doing anything. It was so nice to use her for my first daughter,
and I would use her again in a heart beat. She actually really loves
water birth, and my daughter was born in the water, into my arms, and no
one touched her except me for at least an hour. It was my dream come
true. What mattered most was the respect that Kim treated me and my
baby." - L.C.
"Kim is a tremendous midwife.
She provided exactly the kind of care around my birth I was looking for
my second VBAC... intuitive and highly skilled. I was a VBAC client
with prior history of gestational diabetes yet it was important to me
that she treat me as "normal". She did just that and gave me control to
have an amazing home-waterbirth. She remained calm with all challenges
that came up during the birth and things were perfect! I couldn't be
"Unfortunately, the role of obstetrics has never been to help women give birth. There is a big difference between the medical discipline we call “obstetrics” and something completely different, the art of midwifery. If we want to find safe alternatives to obstetrics, we must rediscover midwifery. To rediscover midwifery is the same as giving back childbirth to women. And imagine the future if surgical teams were at the service of the midwives and the women instead of controlling them.” - Michael Odent, MD
"A woman in birth is at once her most powerful, and most vulnerable. But any woman who has birthed unhindered understands that we are stronger than we know.” –Marcie Macari
