Katie Jo was truly an asset to my birthing experience with my second baby. I had a c section with my first and with my second I wanted a completely different experience. From our first interview, I felt so comfortable with Katie Jo and knew I wanted her to support me through my next delivery. I described my first birthing experience to her and explained how I felt about it and what I wished to change. She was incredibly understanding and never made me feel silly for the way I felt. She is incredibly supportive of a woman’s wishes during childbirth and strives to meet their physical and emotional needs. I appreciated that she knew how important this vbac experience was to me. She was also completely nonjudgemental. We met to discuss my birth plan and what I hoped for this time around. Katie Jo was never pushy or disapproving. She took the time to hear what I was comfortable with and what my hopes were and worked to make it all possible. Most importantly, she understands that for women, labor and delivery isn’t just the process by which a baby is born. She knows that it’s a highly emotional experience and a healthy baby is NOT the only important outcome. Unfortunately, another cesarean was unavoidable. However, this time around I walked away feeling empowered. I can recall this birth story and have fond memories of laboring. This is all because of Katie Jo and I can’t thank her enough.
