I’m very happy, that are we hired Kirsten for our baby delivery.
We meet twice before, and I was very nervous because my first I delivered in another country and used epidural anesthesia, and this time I wanted to do it naturally without medication. Kirsten helped me to prepare to our big and hard day. Week before big day we was in touch every day. And of course in day of delivery too.
She helped me with her knowledge and physically with massages, Tence machine and mentally with her words.. all the time in my head I just listened to her “you can do it”, and I did it :)
My husband didn’t understand before, why we need to hire doula. And after, he told me, that was BEST decision!
Thank you, Kirsten ??
Kirsten is absolutely incredible. After our first phone consult, I knew she would be a lifelong friend to me. She was there throughout the last trimester of my pregnancy and made sure to check in on me every few days. We talked about everything and her compassion as well as suggestions made me at ease. She went above and beyond to be there for me even prior to the birth. The day I gave birth, we went walking, she scheduled me an acupuncture appointment and she made me dinner as well as helped straighten my house as I’m a bit of a neat freak and she didn’t want me to be overwhelmed during birth. My birth was very untraditional (homebirth with a surprise breech baby) but she never once left my side. During labor she had a slew of techniques for pain management which were super helpful. I can’t say enough good things about her as a person and a provider. I’m so thankful that we took the plunge and hired Kirsten as our doula. We’re definitely having more babies and she’s going to be there each and every time.
Kirsten is hands-down amazing. She is not only immensely knowledgeable but incredibly kind. As soon as I met her, I knew I wanted her to be my doula. Kirsten is always available for questions and support and made me feel at ease, as I recently gave birth to our first son. I honestly cannot stress how amazing she is. She was such a calming and supportive presence during the birth. My husband and I don't know what we would have done without her. Five starts aren't enough of a rating. Thank you so much, Kirsten! We already have a doula for our next child. ??????
This was my third time having a little one but Kirsten taught me so much about the hospital experience, and things that I did or did not have to do while I was there when it came to me giving birth. She taught me that I didn't have to just bow down to everything the hospital wanted. She is very knowledgeable when it comes to the birthing experience and becoming a mother whether it's the first time or the third like mine. And above all she was there by my side the whole time I was in labor and thereafter and it felt awesome to have someone else there who cared.
Kirsten was AMAZING! I dont know how I wouldve survived an all natural labor without her. She was always is up for my crazy questions about labor, postpartum depression, and breastfeeding. With her help, I was able to have my all natural birth and breastfeed for 20 months and counting. I'm so thankful, she was so supportive and informative!
