One of the first decisions I made when I found out I was pregnant was that I wanted to have a doula present at the birth. I realized how important it would be to have someone in the room who knew the ropes of labor and delivery. My husband and I are first time parents (and expecting twins!) so hiring a doula was as much for me as it was him. Kerry was our choice from the start, she was available to me throughout our whole pregnancy, answering questions, offering suggestions and words of encouragement. She came to our house to discuss birth options, how things would go in the hospital and what to expect along the way. During labor she was able to coach me through contractions, put me in different labor positions and support my husband. When my labor ended in an emergency C-section, Kerry was right there telling me what an amazing job I did. She stayed until the babies were born and came to visit me in the recovery room. I would recommend Kerry to anyone considering having a doula present at their labor, she is truly worth her weight in gold!

Kerry was professional and very empathetic during our delivery. Kerry spent a lot of time with us prior to the delivery and was always available for advice and guidance by phone or text. Kerry was helpful during delivery as well – with her experience as a massage therapist and her knowledge of the process itself, she served to keep us calm and relaxed through the process. She worked everything in her arsenal during the delivery and knew how to work with the midwives and nurses to best serve me. After delivery, Kerry stopped by to check in on me and see how I was doing, which was not something I would expect from most. I would highly recommend Kerry to anyone looking for a helping hand before, during, and after delivery.

In January, 2018, my husband and I chose Kerry Burke to be our doula for our first child. Upon meeting Kerry, her calming presence and likeable personality instantly gave us a level of comfort we knew would need going into a very unfamiliar experience.

During 30 hours of natural childbirth, her support, encouragement, and guidance helped us both stay strong and focused on our birth plan. Kerry continuously provided support when labor was especially challenging. She made us feel comfortable and confident throughout even the most intimate moments of childbirth.

She quickly became a welcomed member of our “team,” and we look forward to having her in the delivery room for future children. She will always have a special place in our lives.

My experience with Kerry as my doula was everything I needed and more. Through my labor and contractions she was there to give me methods to ease the pain, rubbing my back and reassuring me everything would be okay. She gave my partner tips on how to keep me calm and keep me in a good head space. Although my delivery ended in an emergency c-section, Kerry was there beginning to end. Neither my partner or I had family available for support so having Kerry there made a huge difference for me. Even after I was notified that I would need to have a c-section, Kerry kept me calm and explained why it was for the best.

If my partner and I decide to have another baby, I will absolutely be reaching back out to Kerry for her doula services. I highly recommend her!
