Before I even met Kati, I spoke with her over the phone and knew right away that she'd be a perfect fit. Her voice was so calming, and I was relaxed just talking to her. At the prenatal visit, she showed me various exercises to help me prep my body for delivery and to cope with early labor pains. She talked to me about my birth plan and provided icons to help provide a quick visual aid for hospital staff, and she brought me beautiful handmade affirmation cards with words of encouragement tailored specifically to me!
During the weeks leading up to delivery, she was so responsive. She checked with me regularly to see how I was feeling and to see how my prenatal doctor's appointments went.  I went into labor two days before a scheduled induction, and Kati checked in with me via phone and text messages as labor progressed until it was time to head to the hospital, and she was there when we arrived.
Throughout labor, Kati helped me to cope with the pain and to labor productivity by recommending changes to my position and movements. She applied counter pressure during contractions and reminded me to relax with specific instructions based on where I was holding tension. This empowered me to relax more quickly on my own as I heard her words echo in my head to remind me during each contraction. I wasn't sure how the affirmation cards would work in a hospital setting since it wasn't "my space," but Kati moved them around as I moved, and I found myself looking for them as I sought words of encouragement!
Kati provided so much support and helped create a positive environment to assist me in achieving my drug-free delivery!

Kati visited us after we returned home, and she brought two "babies" for my toddler to play with while I am nursing her baby brother. The first couple days at home were a tough adjustment for all of us, and it was so sweet of Kati to think of her and give her some one-on-one attention!

Kati was always there for me. She answered all my questions, either by phone or text and helped me prepare for my birth without any fear. I texted her all day during my contractions and she supported me the whole time. When I finally decided we should meet and go to the center, she was ready and willing to head out there. She kept me and my husband fed, calm, and rested the whole time, even though my baby was a bit stubborn and took some coercion to join us! How she juggled us both, I'll never know, but somehow she still found time to get us some pictures, as well!
After the birth, she was there with us to make sure we were surrounded with drinks and food and that all our concerns were taken care of before she left us to our rest.
She was so helpful and there's no way I could have done that so calmly and without fear on my own. I went into my pregnancy just knowing what the movies tell me, so I was pretty scared of it all. Kati helped me keep so calm through it that everyone there told me I made it look easy!

I attended Kati's hypnobirthing class and enjoyed every bit of it. It's not like every la maze class where it seems very unpersonable and uncomfortable. It was always very inviting and relaxing. You also learn so much from every session, different breathing techniques, birthing positions, and how to obtain the deepest relaxed state of mind. Kati was also my doula. She helped me during my labor experience at the hospital. While I've experienced some horrendous labor and delivery nurses, I luckily had Kati by my side to help get back to my most relaxed state and continue to push through it all. "Every surge brings me closer to my baby," affirmations, breathing techniques mixed with her words of encouragement and comfort helped me through my delivery. I couldn't have asked for a better doula!
