The difference between the birth of my daughter in 2011 and the birth of my son in 2015 was having Kathryn by my side. With Kathryn next to me I felt like I could do anything. The nurses were great but having Kathryn as my doula made all the difference. She was comforting in ways a nurse, a Doctor or even my husband could not be. She massaged my limbs, sprayed essential oils, and heated a hand made herb filled neck pillow for comfort. At the end when it was time to push it was Kathryn’s voice I heard, urging me, encouraging me. Thanks to Kathryn the difference between my first and second birth were night and day, my second birth was more than enjoyable, it was a celebration! The way a birth should be.
Needless to say I would recommend Kathryn to anyone and I believe being a Doula is Kathryn’s niche, anyone would be lucky to have her, she’s amazing.
I can’t express how helpful Kathryn was during the birth of our daughter. She is very compassionate and has a wealth of knowledge which put me at ease as my due date came closer. My birth plan was to labor at home as long as I could and have a natural birth at our hospital. Long story short…. preeclampsia and a sudden onset of bells palsy meant it was time to induce me. 17 hours of hard labor followed, then my daughter decided to try and make a grand entrance sunny-side-up and got stuck. It was emergency c-section time. From the start, my labor wasn’t natural and not what I wanted. I felt defeated and as if I had failed. Kathryn could see my distress and reminded me that I was doing what was best for my baby girl and I. Kathryn was our ROCK during the birth of our daughter. She was very calm and supportive of all my decisions. She was by my side for 30 Straight hours! I don’t know what I would have done without her! She was such an amazing support for myself and my husband during the labor and was able to keep me calm and centered during my labor. I am so grateful that she was my doula! No one knows what their birth story will be, but having a doula like Kathryn helps alleviate the fears, which results in an easier labor. Thank you Kathryn for being our doula!
