I found Kat on doulamatch and she made all the difference at my birth! Not to mention the face-to-face consultation, two prenatal in-home visits, and the postpartum session (luckily on Zoom due to social distancing).
Kat offered to meet me at a place of my choosing (Starbucks!) to talk about what I wanted out of my birth experience and to inform me more about her services. I wanted someone who I saw as a peer and a friend, and I definitely felt that vibe from Kat! She is refreshingly genuine, a calm listener, and she is up-to-date with her birthing knowledge. This was invaluable to me as a first time momma.
During our prenatal sessions we talked about things to do during pregnancy to prepare for labor, what to expect during labor, how my husband could support me, and what she would be doing as a doula to support me. Kat also supported me mentally and emotionally, encouraging me to write down my fears and de-stress regularly.
When the time came for my baby girl to make her appearance, Kat was available by text and phone call until I really needed her extra support during labor. Fortunately, even with Covid-19 on the loose, Kat was able to show her credentials to the screening people at the hospital entrance and make her way to L&D. Doulas are a part of the birthing team!!! She was able to make suggestions for when I couldn't think what labor position to try next. She helped me make decisions about pain control and other interventions. She held my hand, massaged my back, reminded me to eat ice chips in between pushes and was on the other end of the rope in tug-of-war while I pushed. She gave my husband suggestions of how to help me cope and she took the first picture of my new family. She helped me latch my baby girl to feed for the first time.
I am so thankful I chose her to be my doula!

If you are on the fence about hiring a doula, I would highly recommend it, but I especially recommend Kat Adams!

I'm fortunate to know Katherine on a personal level, but she also supported us for the the birth of our daughter (second child) in July 2018. It was a planned homebirth with a midwife. I began working with Katherine in the second trimester. She was an encouraging & reassuring presence throughout. She prompted me to verbalize hopes/goals I had for the pregnancy & birth. She held me accountable for getting organized & maintaining healthy eating/activity patterns. She checked in with me periodically to inquire about any challenges (physical/emotional/work-related) I might be facing; this was really valuable in preparing both practically and mentally for the birth.

ld highly recommendOn the day of the birth she was wonderful support to me & my husband. She helped me more than I could have imagined. She was confident, calm and reassuring. Katherine is very intuitive; she knew when to observe & when to suggest something to change the energy or help labor progress (and it was always a helpful suggestion); she knew when it was time to call the midwife to come and how to help me cope as the labor became more intense. She worked very well with the rest of the birth team (midwife & midwife assistant). I feel she was an integral part of my birth experience. Although cliche, I truly feel I could not have done it without her support. Katherine continued to reach out to us in the postpartum period to ensure we were adjusting to life with the baby. 

Katherine is passionate about birth work and empowering women. She is wise, confident and encouraging. It is wonderful just to hang with her, whether during a birth or otherwise; and she's one of the coolest people I know, to top it off. I would highly recommend her.
