Sabrina Eveland

Kathyrn was our birth doula! I highly recommend her. When we first met with Kathryn it was abundently clear that she loves being a doula and everything that comes with it. She is very knowledgeable and is a good listener. She is always ready to help you find the info that you need or help you think outside of the box to get your concerns and needs met. During birth she was incredibly reliable and was in constant communication in the weeks leading up- which took some of the pressure off. She used her prior knowledge and experience to help assist in the birth process, while treating my birth as a unique and individual experience. She is supremely organized and checked in with me often to make sure that my needs were being met and that I didn't forget anything that we had discussed previously. She was a huge help to have in the delivery room, and allowed for my partner to be completely present with me- which is what was important to me. I would highly recommend Kathryn!!!
