Having Kaleigh as my doula was an amazing experience and a tremendous help. She was helpful in educating me in what to expect in the weeks leading up to the birth, the childbirth process itself, and what to expect postpartum.

When my contractions started, Kaleigh had me in different positions, massaging my back to relieve the pain, which helped alot. When it was time to go to the hospital, she made sure to make the ride as comfortable as possible for me- loaded up the back seat with my pregnancy pillow, blankets, and even a bucket for me to puke in if needed (which I did).

At the hospital, I was admitted right away- dialated 7cm. If it weren't for Kaleigh's knowledge, I would have gone to the hospital hours earlier, and in turn, hooked up to a machine while being uncomfortable like many of the women I saw. 

Throughout the birthing process, Kaleigh was quick to suggest laboring positions, ask questions, and make suggestions that were in my best interest. She knew exactly what to say, encouraging me the entire time.

When I was told the birth wasnt going quick enough and would have to have a c-section, she convinced my midwife to let me rest in a position with a peanut ball to help my cervix open up more. It worked! And in turn,  I was able to regain some much needed energy. She continued to encourage me, and give me the mental strength I needed. Shortly after, I gave birth to my beautiful son.

After he was born, Kaleigh helped me nurse him and made sure our first steps following birth were successful.  She also had my back when I refused the eye drops and first shots. Kaleigh was my security team against the nurses and hospital staff-making sure all my wishes and needs were met.

I honeslty cannot recommend Kaleigh enough! I strongly believe in her knowledge and skills as a doula. She is amazing human being. Her energy was constantly calm, no matter what was thrown her way.

On September 28, 2018 I went into labor with my first child. I had no idea what was happening so I reached out to the only person I knew could help. Kaleigh met me at the hospital and immediately started coaching me through the waves. I was in labor for 14 hours and she was there with me every step of the way. Her gentle voice and touch helped me to breathe through the pain and not let it consume me. She helped explain all of the things the doctors wanted to do and make sure I was completely informed. She helped create a safe space to brith my daughter. As I started to push, she was guiding my breathe and helping me stay focused. 

As soon as my daughter was earthside, Kaleigh massaged my breath to stimulate the milk production. She helped me learn how to properly latch my baby onto my breast and make sure we were both comfortable. 

Having Kaleigh involved in my birth was such a blessing. I’m so grateful for her and the energy she brought to the space. She is very loving and gentle and makes even the most chaotic time feel peaceful. 

Im grateful for you Kaleigh and am excited to see where this journey takes you. You touched my life and will always be a part of our story. 

Thank you
