Then, I was the second time mom, who again walked into the hospital underprepared only knowing that I wanted to avoid pitocin at all costs. And ended up really having to speak up for what I wanted to get my unmedicated birth because this hospital wanted me in the bed, and on drugs and wasn't going to support a single part of my birth plan. I was on my own.

When I got pregnant with my third and final baby, I was determined to finally have my best birth. When I couldn't have the home birth I wanted I went into research mode. I had just become a doula and I dove even deeper into birth rights, hospital policies, evidence based care, and physiologic birth. And I started early with preparing my body and mind for the birth I wanted.

I was the first time mom who walked into the hospital with nothing more than a huge belief in my body's ability and ended up on pitocin, barely reaching my goal of unmedicated (yes, I asked for the epidural) and only because I had a really hands on midwife helping me through transition.
 I left that birth saying I was never going to give birth again.

medical freedom, bodily autonomy, maternal satisfaction, physiologic birth, and mom intuition.

what I'm all about

All that work paid off. And I had my magical birth experience. And I want you to have that too.

Hi there! I'm Kortney - founder and CEO of KP & Co, a mom of 2 young boys, and virtual assistant! In 2020, I was a brand new mom searching for something better than a traditional job that kept me away from my son. That's when I fell into the VA world and never looked back. Running my own business as a virtual assistant has truly changed my life.

When I'm not working with clients, you can find me spending quality time with my husband and two boys, gardening or working on our self built barndominium, or curled up with a good book and a coffee. My family & I call Western Colorado home and we love every minute of it!

-Lauren, first time mom

“This was about so much more than an unmedicated birth. I have felt so empowered through pregnancy and all decisions which is a huge turn around from our fertility journey! The work you do here makes a real difference."

-Mary, homebirth mom & doula

“I witnessed my sister have an incredible, beautiful, undisturbed physiologic birth in the hospital. Before attending her birth I’m not sure I believed it was actually possible.”
