Without a doubt, Kaity made my birth experience 100% better. She was kind, compassionate, and supportive in the weeks leading up to my birth. She has a vast wealth of knowledge and a fantastic lending library, and she was always there for me when I had questions or concerns. Very quick to answer a text or E-Mail, she provided me with much needed reassurance.
When my water broke and we knew it was time, she was ready to go. She brought "magical bag of wonders" to the birth FULL of helpful things! It seemed that she had anything I could possibly need, and it was a huge help to my husband and I. When in transition, I broke down and asked for pain medication, even though I was adamant about not wanting it. Kaity gently reminded me that wasn't what I wanted and guided me through one contraction at a time. When it came time to push, she was right there with me, encouraging me the entire way.
She went above and beyond, doing things like bringing snacks and taking photos of the entire labor for us. I had the perfect birth, and I know it was because of Kaity. If I ever became pregnant again, I would never consider birthing without her. I HIGHLY recommend Kaity to any woman thinking of hiring a doula. Please give her a call - you will be so glad you did.
Kaity was very supportive and was in constant contact in the weeks leading up to our birth. Without Kaity, my husband and I would not have gotten the birth experience that we wanted. Her extra support helped us stick to our birth plan and brought so much more calm to the experience. Her wealth of knowledge and personal experience helped us KNOW that we could do this. She was a VERY important part of our birth team. I truly wish that every pregnant woman could have the opportunity to have a doula like Kaity.
