We had a home birth and Katerina was very professional and detailed, she knew where and when I need her the most and made sure that everything done properly before I had to ask for it.
she educated me and my husband thru videos and explained us about the process, also thouth us about massage techniques that are essential for pain relieve and simplified labor.
we reccomend Katerina for anyone who wants headache free process.
My name is Karen. I want to share my experience of having a doula assist me. Katerina made my experience much better. My son came 7 weeks earlier. I was having contractions since 7 AM that day, but i didn't think i was going to deliver him. She helped me in everything. While we were in the hospital she made me have peace. When ever i felt a contraction she put her hands on my lower back and it helped me feel less pain. She was also helping me with the nurses, as they wanted to do what they wanted. I am so grateful she was there to assist me. I cannot say enough of what she does, she puts her heart into helping you have a peaceful deliver. I would definitely choose her again; Without any doubt i would recommend her.
As a first time mother, I didn't know what to expect and it was invaluable to have Katerina's support and reassurance. She was incredibly present, patient, supportive and encouraging throughout my pregnancy and labor process, and continued to guide me as I ventured into first-time motherhood and it's challenges.
I wanted to have a drug free and natural childbirth and it would have not happened without Katerina's support. She went above and beyond my expectations. Her encouragement and acupressure techniques were amazing and allowed me to make it through active labour of my precious 98th percentile baby boy (I'm 5'3" and 120lb) with no drugs and minimal intervention. She also helped my partner feel and be helpful and stay involved (while it is invaluable to have a loving and supportive partner alongside, but holding your hand doesn't do a lot for the pain, haha.)
Katerina was there to support and advocate for me and provided the much-needed support to my partner as well. She worked great with my midwives, nurses, doctors and rushed the hospital staff to make me as comfortable as it possibly gets.
Then, a couple of weeks after returning home from the hospital, the baby didn't gain enough weight and I was instructed to start supplementing with formula. I really wanted to exclusively breastfeed, and thanks to Katerina's experience and support, his weight went up and he met all targets by his next checkup and was exclusively breastfed up to the introduction of solids at 7 months.
I cannot recall a moment when Katerina wasn't there to help and support both, emotionally and physically, and it truly feels that I could have not done in without her.
Having Katerina as a doula was the best decision I made and would recommend her as birth and postpartum doula in a heartbeat.
We have met Ekaterina while expecting our first child this spring. Right away she showed herself as a trusted and knowledgeable professional who was eager to help and answer all my million questions. After chatting over the phone for almost an hour we agreed to meet at our place for a more detailed conversation. Ekaterina came super prepared and my husband and I learnt so much from her in a few hours we spent together. She gave us tons of amazing tips, shared very educational videos and made the whole child birthing process easy to understand. This was such a huge help for us as it put my mind at ease knowing I have answers to my questions and know what to expect. We couldn’t thank her enough for all her help and expertise! I would highly recommend Ekaterina to any mother expecting a child, first or not :)
We love working with Katerina as our Doula! She was present at all three of our child's births and without her the process would have been much tougher. She is very knowledgable and can help guide you and your spouce through this challanging time. I highly recommend Katerina to anyone who is interested in birth support with Doula.
I had Katerina on all three of my births and I couldn’t have done it without her! Her quiet presence was essential for the process. She is intuitive and knowledgeable and most helpful person! She made everything possible to comfort me and guided my husband how to be helpful and therefore involved in the birth. Katerina knows when and what technique to apply to make the birthing mom comfortable and at peace. I am extremely happy to have had her with us and am recommending her services to others with great pleasure.
