My husband and I knew we wanted a doula from the start, and we are so glad we chose Kayla. We interviewed several doulas, but knew immediately that Kayla was the doula for us by her calm energy and friendly demeanor. She provided us with the resources to prepare for birth in our prenatal meetings, and helped us reflect on our experience at our postnatal meeting. We also chose to encapsulate my placenta, which she did a lovely job of and had back to me in just a couple of days! I had to call Kayla to let her know I was in labor in the middle of the night, and she stayed with us for the entirety of my 38 hour labor. During labor she was an invaluable source of support, encouragement, and guidance. She helped me with positioning and movement to keep labor progressing, helped my husband to know how best to support me, and was great at reminding me of the path I had been hoping to take. She encouraged my husband to take time to replenish himself with food and sleep, which he reflected that he most likely would not have done without her gentle push to do so. She also helped me make some hard decisions about interventions when we were faced with them. I cannot thank Kayla enough for being a part of our birth story, I don't know how we would've done it without her.
