Additional Resources

Peaceful Beginnings’ listing these resources does not, necessarily, imply endorsement. But the family-centered, client-driven approach to health care means to offer information and best advice and to leave health care decisions up to individuals. For any given issue, do your homework and make a decision that is right for your family. Kate is happy to give you information for consideration – even her professional opinion if she is retained as your provider – but, ultimately, your health care choices are yours.
