Kari was such a great support for our VBAC! Our first child was a scheduled c-section so we'd never labored before and really benefitted from her calming support. She taught us so much ahead of time and was a quick text, call, and visit away preceisely when we wanted and needed her. She knew just what would help ease the pain but I think just having her there helped calm my nerves too. Just the right amount of help at the hospital too to make our daughter's birth perfect. I highly recommend Kari to all mommies-to-be!
We are SO grateful for Kari... my husband and I were unsure about having a doula as this was our first child and we didn't know what to expect but we are both extremely happy we had her on our team. We can't sing her praises enough! She was such a blessing and a great support for both my husband and I. She brought invaluable knowledge and experience which eased our nerves and allowed us to focus on bringing our baby into the world and stick to our birth plan as much as possible. We love Kari and definitely recommend her to everyone!
We spent much of our pregnancy surrounding ourselves with caring professionals who know more about labor, delivery and parenting than we do. Kari was an integral part of this team. In preparation, she helped my partner and I work through our hopes and fears surrounding this life changing process. When the end of this amazing 9 month journey came, she was there by our side, riding a very thin line. She served as an encouraging teacher to my partner, an additional opinion to my midwifery team and a voice of calm to this laboring mother. She played this delicate role beautifully and in the end, her presence at what could have been the most vulnerable time in my life helped to instead make it one of the most empowering. Asking her to join this sacred moment in our lives was one of the best decisions we made for our little girl. Kari will forever hold a very special place in our hearts. Words cannot express our gratitude.
