Kate was such a blessing to have through the pregnancy and birth of my 3rd son. She carries  perfect balance of fun joy and serious knowledge about everything birth babies and motherhood. Already having 2 births I didn't know if I would need a doula, I definitely needed Kate though. I cannot recommend her highly enough!

She provided tips and techniques to prepare me and my husband for the birthing process, more so than my doctors office (who I also think very highly of) has. With Kate's stretches I felt like my body was more prepared to bring my baby into the world.

She was so open and understanding to all of my birthing requests and desires. She always let me know what my options were but was very respectful about what I was comfortable with, what I wanted for the birth of my child. 

At the hospital she was a breath of fresh air as we waited for the main event. She kept my husband and I both grounded and even cheery at a fairly anxious time for us. She helped me to move about the room and maternity floor continuing to prepare my body for my delivery. 

She truly shared the joy of our growing family and showered each one of us with her love. Kate truly lends all of herself to her mothers, babies, births, and families and it can be felt throughout the whole process. You may be on the fence about needing a doula, but I can assure you that you need Kate.

From the very first meet you told me to search around before deciding who I wanted to be my Doula. Sorry but I never listen. I knew from the start you were who I needed to help me achieve my homebirth. You were the one who I knew could handle me in my most vulnerable state. I am one of the most stubborn independent people I know and those traits shown through during labor and you always knew what to do even when I didn’t. When I said I can’t for the thousandth time you kept reassuring me that I could. You made sure Logan stayed calm and told him what to do when I needed it. I couldn’t have imagined doing this without you. I hope your kids know just how amazing their mommy is! Thank you for being my strength, thank you for pretending with Logan that we were gonna make it to the hospital and get that epidural lol! It made the pain reside for those last few minutes which was what I needed before the finale. You carry your weight in gold and I wish I was going to have more babies so that you could be my Doula again! You have the most pure soul Ive ever met. I wish you all the success in the world You deserve!

I am so happy we had Kate at our doula. She was so calm and supportive during the birth of daughter. While we had planned for a hospital birth, baby came very quickly while we labored at home and ended up being born in an ambulance on the way to the hospital. Kate helped my husband and I stay calm as labor progressed. Kate is a wonderful doula and she comes 100% recommended from this mom!
