Kelsie Sutherland

I had to really take a couple weeks after our son's birth to write this.  Over and over Jeff and I bring up Kristina's positive impact on our birth experience.  From the comprehensive, straight forward, and thoughtful birth prep at our house to the big delivery day itself, we are endlessly grateful for Kristina.  With her help, we were able to come to a natural, low intervention hospital birth plan that was followed through exquisitely as Kristina coached us as a couple to calmly manage contractions.  She advoated for us at the hospital when we were too tired to think, gave us options that we didn't know existed as first time parents, and always made us feel supported and capable.   Although she is AMAZING at WHAT she does, I really think Kristina's gentle soul and character make her extraordinary; she is calm, comforting, nurturing, and positive.  We will never stop raving about her to all our friends who are expecting.  We truly could not be happier with our first birth.

Kristina is extremely knowledgeable, professional, and kind. We are so grateful to her for assisting us with the birth of our second baby. She was very supportive during my pregnancy, and instrumental in the creation of our birth plan.  She introduced us to pain management tools that we hadn't encountered before (like the rebozo!), and helped me explore my options to avoid an unwanted induction.  My labour/delivery was very quick and intense, and her calming presence helped get me through.  Thank you Kristina!

Hiring Kristina as our doula was one of the best decisions we made in preparing to bring our baby girl into this world! She’s super passionate about what she does and is a complete natural!!
Her prenatal visits were informative and really helped us prepare. She helped us create our birth plan, gave us a ton of info on birth, and showed us different comfort measures that would be available when it came time to birth.
I ended up with a full week of pre-labor and she was available the whole time to support us mentally, suggest ways to speed things up, etc. (through text). It was a life saver!
When it came time for the actual birth, she knew exactly what to do and say the whole time. I don’t know how we’d have done it without her gentle, positive, empowering attitude! She provided different tools to help manage the contractions, constantly reassured me of my strength and capability of birthing our child (she read my birth affirmations ahead of time and used the same language to help me push through), and helped my husband know how to best support me! She respected and followed our birth plan and helped the midwife to do as well.
Kristina, you made our birth experience the best one possible!! We are ever so grateful!
