Gypsy Pietz

Katie was not our original doula - she was a back-up provided to us when we went into labor early and our original doula was still occupied with a birth! Naturally, we were quite worried about not having a doula, so we were so grateful that Katie agreed to come help us with our birth. Katie is very friendly, experienced, helpful, assertive when she needs to be (with the hospital staff), and above all, very positive! Birth is obviously stressful, but we were able to stay upbeat with such a positive force around to help us. We were very pleased with Katie and her service, and we're so glad to have met her and made a new friend in the process. Thanks, Katie!

We had an increible natural birth with Katie as our trusted and well loved doula. I truly believe Katie was instrumental in the whole experience being so magical. She was very knowledgable on positioning, when it was a good idea to get in the tub, talking me through contractions when needed etc. It was so nice to have her with us at all times during labor - at home, on the way to the hospital, and at the hospital -- she was a constant and steady presence for both me and my husband. Her unwavering support gave me great courage in the throes of active labor. Katie was an invaluable source of strength to me -- she believed in me and my body and my baby every second of the journey. Our family has been greatly blessed by Katie and we are hopeful to hire her for the births of our future babies. :)

Katie was an absolutely amazing source of support leading up to, and during the birth of our first child. I have known Katie for many years and she has always been an incredibly positive, reliable and inspiring friend. As our doula, she guided us through pre-natal classes to help us gain an understanding of what to expect throughout labor and delivery, and helped us create a birth plan that both my husband and I felt comfortable with. Our birth story is a VERY long one (over 36 hours, closer to 48 if we are counting prodromal labor) and Katie provided her positive energy, knowledge and experience every step of the way. When I was having contractions but not making much progress, Katie suggested squatting during contractions which almost immediately helped move things along. When we were admitted to he hospital, Katie came right away and brought a fresh presence into our birthing space. She advocated for us to have the experience we had hoped for in our birth plan, which was awesome. She provided so much support for my husband and me, especially when things became more intense. When I started to struggle and doubt whether I could continue, she was there reassuring me and making sure my husband felt supported, too.  She was with us for a long, grueling night that turned into the happiest morning when we finally met our son! I cannot think of anyone better to have shared this experience with us and I’m so glad Katie was there for it. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for support, positivity, and someone they can completely trust during this special experience. We will definitely be reaching out to her with our next pregnancy as well. Thanks Katie!

Having Katie as our doula was a great experience and I'm so glad she was a part of our birth story. I desired a natural birth experience and my husband and I were feeling like we'd need extra support during labor. We were connected with Katie just a few short weeks before my due date. Katie instantly set us at ease and encouraged us in the birth journey we decided on. In the last couple weeks of pregnancy, Katie was very encouraging and gave great ideas how to intentionally spend our time waiting in baby. When the time came, Katie was a huge asset to our delivery. She encouraged me throughout the birth with a calm and confident manner that helped me believe I could do this. She was a great support and knew the best way to ease my back labor. From a logistical stand point it was also helpful to have a 3rd member of our party at the hospital, which allowed my husband to stay with me at all times. Through our entire pregnancy and birth journey, Katie was encouraging, flexible, respectful, and knowledgeable, all of which made our experience with her wonderful. I highly recommend Katie and Denver Born.
