If you’re looking for a doula, I would recommend Kendelle in a heartbeat! She was a sweet, compassionate, strong support for me during my labor and delivery. To have someone that was there just to look out for me, and my best interest meant the world. She knew my birth plan and made sure everyone stuck to it, so I could just focus on me and baby. Just a few of the many perks of having Kendelle as your doula…she uses pressure/massage to help you get through contractions, she has knowledge of essential oils to help comfort during labor, she does placenta encapsulation, she checks in on you and baby post-partum…. you better believe I was on board for all of this!

Kendelle was my doula and much of my support immediately before and after the birth of my son via a gestational surrogate.  Kendelle made herself available to answer questions and get me prepared in the days prior to my son's birth and in the days, weeks and months since he was born.  It seemed that she was always available to answer questions and provide her perspective and advice, but she always left the final decisions up to me.  She was available in person, by phone, by text and by email.  I never had to wait long for a response to my never-ending questions.  She went out of her way to help.  My mom was with me through this experience and Kendelle even took my mom to urgent care when my mom was having trouble with an infection.  On the first night we had my son home from the hospital, he started sounding like he was having trouble breathing.  Kendelle said I could call anytime, so I called her at midnight.  She answered right away and was at our place within 10 or 15 minutes.  She stayed until 3 AM!  Fortunately, the breathing issue wasn't anything serious and Kendelle was able to evaluate things right away and calm me and my mom down.  I have complete confidence in Kendelle and I cannot say enough nice things about her.  I honestly can't imagine another doula being as caring and knowledgeable as Kendelle.  She obviously loves her work and you can tell that her primary interest is in helping any way that she can and providing the best outcome possible.  She is still answering questions as they come up and my son is now 4 months old!

Kendelle was the doula for the birth of my second child, my son, a successful VBAC. She had a reassuring and collected demeanor that helped me to feel at ease. While she was happy to make suggestions and recommendations for positioning and techniques, she also let me lead my own delivery and be in control of my body and experience. Kendelle is a natural healer and nurturer with a calming spirit. I have no doubt that THIS is exactly the kind of work she should be doing, and any prospective mama would be lucky to have Kendelle at her side during the most important moment in her life.

I am so very grateful to have had Kendelle as my doula and would highly recommend her! I had a traumatic pregnancy and went into premature labor, and Kendelle was right there by my side advocating for my birth plan, keeping me calm and keeping my focus on the baby. While I was in labor, my doctor and nurses were telling me over and over that I was going to have to have a C section because the baby wasn't in the right birth position. Kendelle knew that a C section wasn't what I wanted for the birth unless absolutely necessary, so she administered a technique using a bed sheet to rock my hips back and forth to get my baby in the right position. It worked! I fully believe that it is because of Kendelle that I was able to have the delivery I wanted and didn't have to endure a C section surgery and recovery.
After I had my baby, Kendelle also spent so much time with me, answering my postnatal questions and even driving me to the hospital to visit my baby in the NICU. Kendelle is a dream!
