Lauren Bomba

Kim will always be such a special person to our family becasue of her role in our son's birth. From the moment I met Kim, I felt instantly connected to her as a woman and knew that her balance of honesty and energy would be exactly what I needed in a birth coach. Thorughout our pregnancy, Kim was avaiable over the phone or in person to share information and informed advice that allowed us to feel confident about the birth plan we had created together. She checked in with my husband, Jeff, and I regularly over txt or email and shared in the excitement and anticipation of our baby's birth. Kim's passion and expert support as our doula really shined as she assisted us in the challenging stages of active labor. Kim came to our home, greeted us with a warm embrace, gave Jeff and I multpile comfort strategies to try and kept us motivated and focused when things got tough. Kim made me feel secure and safe during every stage of labor. She coached me in a way that provided encouragement yet allowed me to feel empowered. She supported Jeff and guided him in ways that allowed him to be a strong and capable partner. I cannot imagine delivering our son without Kim by our side. She was a vital member of our team and I will always remember her as the strength that helped me realize that my body was strong, resilient, and capable of delivering our beautiful baby the way we had always imagined.
