Client Testimonials for Kathy Kinard

Post a testimonial for Kathy Kinard

Ryan Besel


Kathy went above and beyond for my pregnancy and birth experience, she attended classes at the hospital with me, came to my home, texted me weekly to check on me and I knew if I ever had a question (I had a ton, first time mom!) she was there.

She showed ways to make birth easier and was there for me, held my legs back when I was to weak while pushing.

It’s not just someone there to help, it’s that she’s there for you, gets to know you well enough that she just knew when to help without me needing to ask.

Kathy was a huge blessing to me and my family. Would highly recommend having her in particular as your doula!

 My baby ended up in nicu, and I just didn’t know what to think or how to feel, Kathy helped me with that too, she had been though this with her own children and made me feel more at ease with the nicu staff. All around wonderful experience and I’m so glad we chose Kathy
