I recently had a baby and Kelly was my doula. After interviewing a few I found a good connection with her and I am so glad she was there for the birth of my baby boy. She had just a caring and compassionate way about her and she really empowered me to make informed choices for myself. She never put her own personal beliefs onto me, rather helped me channel and access my own power and worth. My birth experience was beautiful and I don't think I would have had such a positive experience if it wasn't for her. We had a solid birth plan going into the hospital and she was able to keep space for me to birth in my own way. She was comforting and supportive and knew when to be hands on and when to just be a wall flower. I would highly recommend any and every woman to use her as their doula.
Once I found out I was pregnant I knew that I wanted the most amazing experience throughout my pregnancy and at birth. Kelly was my doula from the start and I cannot even express how amazing she was throughout the entire process. Thinking about giving birth was scary for me, as I'm sure it is for many, and Kelly was able to show me how to have a very peaceful and empowering birth. She went over in detail with me my birth plan and educated me on having an all natural birth. She was always available when I needed her even if it was just to have her reassure me that everything will go as planned. She was my voice at the hospital to ensure that everything that we spoke about was happening. I wanted an unmedicated birth but as my labor progressed I thought to myself and said out loud that I wanted an epidural. Kelly coached me through and was able to keep me calm to get me through the contractions. She coached my husband on how to help me through my labor to ensure that I was emotionally and physically okay. Honestly, without having Kelly as my doula I do not think I could have ever had the amazing birth that I did. The aura that she expells is the most calm and caring feeling and during my birth that was the most important thing. She without a doubt, was the reason my birth plan went the way I wanted it and was the reason I had the best child birth experience.
