Sarah Snyder

From the first conversation with Kelly, I knew she was a perfect match for us! As a mother of four, she has so much knowledge and experience it felt like I was talking to a big sister. We met and talked about our plans, she guided me on a simple birth plan, gave us tips for preparing and exercises we could practice at home. Kelly was always checking in on me and especially the last few weeks of pregnancy, I think I talked to her daily! She always knew what to say and was ready when it was finally "go" time! 


The day I went into labor we were on the phone figuring out our next step, she met us at the hospital and went with is to the doctor office and then when I was admitted she was ready to go. During labor she was massaging, guiding my husband on movements or positions that might help me and a voice of reason when I had fear or doubt. My goal of natural child birth was met and I could not have done it without Kelly! It was such a beautiful experience and she will always be a part of our amazing memories. i miss her and our talks, she became a friend! I wholeheartedly recommend Kelly Short for anyone seeking a Doula.
