Kate was truely an amazing doula!  She cares deeply for her clients and work and it shows.  When I found Kate, I was transitioning from planning a home birth to a hospital birth because my baby had health issues.  I was nervous and scared about advocating for myself in the hospital.  Kate helped me find confidence and helped to create a supportive and peaceful birth space for me.  She took time to learn my birth preferences and supported me in them; she was very careful not to tell me what I should or shouldn't do.  I felt that I would be supported by her no matter what decisions I made, before birth or during.  She was a ray of light and source of strength when she arrived at the hospital.  I had wanted to labor out of bed but was feeling timid about getting up.  When she arrived, she helped make the space soothing for me like we had discussed - turning down the lights and assisting me out of bed.  It made such a difference.  She was kind and established a good rapport with the nurses.  She helped me cope in so many ways - both physically (suggesting/negotiating a shower which was unexpectedly awesome at pain relief, using pressure points, and letting me hang on her in transition) and mentally (providing encouragement and being intuitive about things I was worried about that I believe slowed my labor).  I could go on and on! Kate goes above and beyond in her role and very clearly and genuinely cares about the moms and babies she supports.  She is reliable and deeply caring and it comes through in her work.

I love Kate . She is amazing . The moment i talked to Kate I feel like I am in good hands. She is very caring and listen to your concerns . I have twins and postpartum depression and she really helps me . She continues to check up with us afterward . I wish I can have her with the babies forever . She is very gentle with the babies and I can rest at night knowing my babies are well taken care of .

Kate is truley an amazing person! From the moment that my husband and I met Kate we knew that we were in caring hands. She is so warm, compassionate, and understanding. She was not just there to help our son but for me personally she was a shoulder to lean on. Kate is so easy to talk to. She listens and genuinely cares about your well being. Kate also gave my husband and I knowledge about babies ie. how much he should be eating and developmental information. Not only does she look after your child while you catch up on sleep she also did our son's laundry, made bottles, took out trash, and other household chores that might pile up while taking care of a newborn. We highly recommend Kate for all new parents!
