Later that year, Kelly helps Robin put together a list of potential sperm donors as Robin wants to have a child.
In 2009, Kelly was both Claudia Zacchara and Carly Jacks's doctor during their respective pregnancies. Kelly was often annoyed by Claudia's abrasive personality but got along much better with Carly and her husband JaX. As Carly's pregnancy was troubled, Kelly had to remind Carly and Jax about the effect that stress would have on the baby. However, Kelly showed a more fun and playful side to her character when they asked her about whether it was safe to have sex. Kelly assured them that it was and even went so far as to draw them a detailed diagram of sexual positions that would be safest for their unborn child.
In February 2010, Kelly informs Elizabeth that she is pregnant and later is on hand for the birth of Elizabeth's son Aiden in July.
On January 10, 2011, Kelly is seen once again when she informs Sam that there is a procedure, fertility reconstruction, that could allow her to get pregnant again, as she used to want to be a mother.

In May, she performs the procedure on Sam and it is a success, allowing Sam to carry a child to term.
In 2012, Kelly is seen again when Sam Morgan discovers that she is pregnant. Sam eventually delivers a son, whom is later officially named Danny Morgan.
