After the sudden death of my mother just before the birth of my 2nd child, Kaitlin reached out to me and offered support. When I learned of her post-partum doula services, I knew this would be beneficial to me. I was very much impressed with Kaitlin’s professionalism and initiative as she assisted with various household tasks such as folding my baby’s laundry, dishes, heating up lunch for my toddler, and even making sure my cup of coffee was always hot. I had no idea how much her services would mean to me in those first weeks after my baby’s arrival. The emotional support she provided as I mourned the loss of my mother while elated with the arrival of our little girl allowed me to be present and assisted me in avoiding that feeling of isolation when you’re breastfeeding your newborn around the clock. Kaitlin was also available by text message or a phone call if I needed a word of encouragement. I highly recommend her post-partum services.

A thought came to me one day almost 7.5 months pregnant with my second baby 'I need to hire a Doula'. It was the farthest thing from my thoughts but I did some google research and found Kaitlin. My first baby and I haven't left each others side for 2.5 years and I knew it was going to be so hard for her to not be with me while I am giving birth to her brother, as well as at the hospital. The next best thing was my husband...with that in mind, I needed someone to support me while my husband was caring for our daughter. Well lets just say once I called Kaitlin and explained my long thought out story and process for why I needed her, without any hesitation, Kaitlin being a mom of 2 herself totally jumped on board, and supported me in anyway possible! I really wanted to also do a non medicated birth which was very nerve racking for me as I didn't with my first, and again every time we met, Kaitlin provided me with nothing but information, answered all my questions, and an tremendous amount of support. She made me feel like a super hero :) When it became game time, she was right there just how I envisioned it, everything went perfectly, and I reached every goal I had for my birth, and I owe it all to her. <3
