Wonderful experience from start to finish. Upon first reaching out to Kiersten she was kind, patient and flexible with us. We were looking for an as relaxing and stress-free experience as possible and she did her best to make this happen, aside from her natural calming presence. Kiersten was available when needed and provided a lot of information to us, from scientific knowledge on labor and end of pregnancy to diet and exercise prior and post birth. We greatly valued our time with her and the assistance she provided during this amazing time in our lives.
I cannot say enough positive things about Kiersten. My husband and I decided to have a doula as having an unmedicated birth was very important to me and we felt like we needed additional support. I had been taking Kiersten's prenatal yoga classes so when we decided on having a doula I immediately thought of her. From taking her yoga classes, I knew her calm, supportive demeanor would be exactly what we needed. She came to meet with us and spent so much time discussing the birth process and our hopes. She is extremely knowledgeable and my husband and I both felt comfortable and confident she would be able to give us appropriate guidance throughout the birth process. Fast forward to the weeks leading up to birth, Kiersten was in contact with me checking on how I was feeling and how doctor's appointments were going. Once I went into labor, I honestly don't know what I would have done without her. Her strategies and techniques were exactly what I needed to stay as comfortable as possible during the process and her calm, supportive nature gave me the strength I needed. Not knowing what to expect as first time parents, I felt secure knowing Keirsten understood our wishes and would give us proper guidance if we faced any obstacles. She was also in contact with me the days after birth checking in and offering guidance with breastfeeding. Kiersten, we cannot thank you enough for helping us bring our sweet baby boy into this world. We are forever grateful for your support.
We are overcome with emotion when we think about our interactions over the past five months. Kiersten provided support, strength, guidance – intangible things we will always remember and keep with us for the rest of our lives. We thank her from the bottom, top, and middle of our whole hearts for her kind & loving support during our birth process. We are appreciative of her gentle and nurturing nature, and grateful she was part of bringing Baxter into our lives. She helped me find the strength and wisdom I needed within myself. We couldn’t have asked for a more kind, loving, calm, strong, skilled, and helpful doula. Thank you for being part of our team.
With deepest gratitude,
Evan & Kristen
