At first id never heard of a doula before and when I had met Kathy I was very intrigued by her work as one. Further along into my pregnancy she became family to us. Very informative and supportive and all together a great person. With my future pregnancies I wish for her to be by my side again. Even when it got complicated at the end she was there and helpful. Considering it was my first pregnancy I couldnt have been more happier it was her there everyday and night through my labor. Anybody who has the chance of having her as their doula is a lucky person! Thank you so much Kathy for being my doula and becoming a part of the family. Couldn’t have done with you!

Kathy was so wonderful. Kind, informative, compassionate and responsive. This was my first pregnancy and Kathy answered all of our questions as well as informed me of all of my options during the laboring process. She was supportive to all of my requests and wishes for delivery. She helped take the fear and turned it into such a joyful time for my partner and I. One of the things I loved most about Kathy’s service, is how she helped my partner get so involved. She helped us both feel in control and as comfortable as possible. My partner ended up assisting with the delivery of our baby girl. She has been a blessing throughout our journey and we are so thankful for her support as our doula. We highly recommend Kathy. Thank you so much for all that you do!

Kathy was absolutely fantastic through the entire process of my sons birth. My birth plan pretty much went our the window when I had to be induced at 41 weeks and I am so thankful to have Kathy by my side. She was my voice of reason and the perfect cheerleader. Despite pretty much nothing going to plan, my birthing experience was still a good one thanks to Kathy. She is fantastic after my son arrived as well. She was a huge support to me through our struggles to figure out breastfeeding. Words can not express how thankful I am for everything she has done for us and I can't wait for her to witness the birth of my next child.

Let me tell you how AMAZING Kathy is! My husband and I are first time parents and had no idea what to do. Well let me tell you, getting a doula aka Kathy was one of the best decisions that we ever made! Kathy was there to comfort me and really help me through my labor. I honestly don't know how I could have done it without her. SERIOUSLY! She took away my fears and made me feel like I could actually do it, like I could give birth. As before i didn't think I could,I  was terrified. I'm a very petite woman. She did everything she could to make me more comfortable, we tried many different things and not only that but she has such a warm personality that I forgot all about how terrified I was. I felt like I was just hanging out with a friend, she even made me laugh and she told me stories and we just talked about anything. She really gave me the confidence I needed to make it as far as I did. Like I said before, one if the best decisions of my life! Thank you so much Kathy! You have no idea how much I appreciate everything you did for me and how much you helped me!

Kathy was so good to us! She met with us multiple times before birth, drove an hour at 3am to be at the hospital with us, took pictures and videos for us (cause we asked her to:) ), and has met with us twice since (and checks in with us here and there often too!)
She’s so knowledgeable, supportive, EMPOWERING, and does all of it from the bottom of her heart. So incredibly grateful!!
