Kate receives a DAISY Award nomination

March 18, 2024 |

A patient nominated Kate for a Daisy Award for her exceptional care and kindness!

The patient wrote, “Words cannot describe what a positive birthing experience I had due to the support Kate provided. When I checked into labor and delivery, Kate explained everything in detail and empowered me to choose if/when I needed pain management. This was my first labor experience and it lasted 25 hours. Kate was quick to respond to any needs I had. She monitored me, shifted me into positions that helped my pain medication work and showed my husband counter-pressure massages to help me. She displayed a thorough knowledge of labor positions and tested multiple positions periodically to get the baby in the best position for pushing. When it came to pushing, Kate was extremely supportive and encouraging. She expertly explained how to push and encouraged me to push myself but also take breaks when needed. My 25 hours in L&D were especially positive due to my experience being so well taken care of by Kate. I’m grateful for Kate and all she did to make my labor experience so positive!”

Congratulations on the nomination, Kate! Keep up the great work!
