Kim is simply an amazing Doula. She listened to ALL my questions and concerns and helped me understand the birth process. Kim helped us understand our options and develope a birth plan. In the hospital, she was my coach and advocate. She was so supportive of both myself and my husband- helping him know how to help me, and trading off so he could have a break. She was our rock and we can’t thank her enough.
Kim was my Doula for both of my pregnancies and home births. She was wonderful to work with -- a great teacher, advocate and listener. Kim is knowledgeable, practical and exhibits a perfect combination of gentleness and confidence. Because of her experience and study, she helped me manage some overwhelming back pain in my second pregnancy (ask her about "sifting!) She also helped deliver my second son when he came before our midwife arrived! She was calm under pressure, for sure! If you are looking for a Doula, without hesitation, I recommend Kim.
Kim Langley attended both of my children's births - my daughter's in 2012 and my son's in 2014. I honestly couldn't have done it without her! She was everything I wanted and desired in a birth partner; she was calm, supportive, level-headed and knew when to give more and when to pull back. She was motherly and doting when needed and protector of the husband/wife bubble when needed. Kim truly knows how to read the situation, the energy of the room, and respond accordingly. My daughter's birth was textbook. I believe a lot of credit goes to Kim, who encouraged me to do specific exercises to get Baby aligned and ready for delivery, both before and during labor. My son's birth was textbook until the last twenty minutes, which were pretty intense. He flipped during labor and came out Frank Breech, and I was completely unmedicated. Kim was the epitome of peace and calm in the midst of a very scary situation. The birthing room was a flurry of people, and I have no doubt that her focused presence and relaxation exercises helped everyone stay calm in a moment of near-panic. After both births, Kim was absolutely amazing! She ensured babies' latches were great, they were feeding well, and set us up for breastfeeding success. And her post-partum visits were invaluable. I can't say enough amazing things about her! The other incredible thing about Kim is that she'll never push or encourage you to do anything you don't want. Helping and supporting you to have the delivery YOU want it is her goal, whether that means a medicated delivery or not. Even the hospital staff raved about her afterwards, which is an unbelievable compliment. I am so grateful for this woman, and I love that she will always be part of our familial history!
