Stress Free Pregnancy – interview with Kaleen Richards

Welcome!Today I am interviewing Kaaleen Richards.
As a nurse midwife, Kaleen has worked hard to be able to offer families all birth options: home birth, birth center, and hospital birth.

She started out as a doula and childbirth educator in 1996 before getting her RN degree 2000. She believes all women benefit from prenatal care with a midwife due to the emphasis of the Midwifery Model on education, partnership, and natural childbirth.

Birth can be Dramatic but shouldn’t be traumatic! Educating women and families on safety of out of hospital birth, cost savings, and overall improved outcomes is current focus.

Kaleen has three amazing sons, two of which were born at home with a midwife. As a health care provider, she encourages natural remedies for healing and has taken courses to increase her knowledge. She does however take pride in her ability to offer medication when necessary.

Kaleen believes all women deserve to make choices during their birth process and it is an honor to help offer natural childbirth options to families in our community.
