Katie was an amazing doula for not just me, but my whole entire family! She entertained Ariah (my 2yo), supported my husband and mom, all while being very involved, intentional, and in tune with what she felt I may have needed in the moments of laboring! She was so gentle and SO DANG encouraging! She reminded me that "I am doing it" and to relax my face and shoulders! I didn't realize how holding tension in your face also means you're holding tension down below! We talked just about everyday and just about everyday after the labor! I'd recommend Katie 100xs over and over to any expecting mama!!! This is her calling and I'm so proud to call her my friend and doula!

First let me start by saying, I would not have survived labor without Katie McKinney! She is incredibly knowledgeable about labor and delivery. I labored for over 24 hours and not once did she leave my side. She was encouraging when I felt like I couldn't do it anymore and exhaustion had set in. She walked me through every single contraction reminding me to breath.. because let's be real that is hard! She has a great sense of humor and keeps the room alive which we loved. She is also serious when she needs to be. She is a advocate for you when you can't be one for yourself. Heck, I didn't even know some of the things going on and she had my back. She is fantastic with communication while getting closer to the due date. My husband and I are blessed she was there to help guide us and bring our sweet baby girl into this world.

Katie is absolutely amazing and I can not imagine giving birth without her. She supported us before our delivery by meeting with us and explaining our options, creating expectations, and writing a birth plan. The day of delivery she stayed with us past her normal time when things got complicated, coached us through every step, and helped us achieve the beautiful birth of our son. She was a support for me but just as much for my husband as well. She has also continued to encourage and coach us after delivery with breastfeeding, sleeping tips, and so much more.

Katie is also an amazing photographer and captured priceless moments during our delivery and of our newborn that we will be able to cherish forever. 

Katie is knowledgeable, patient, and so very kind. Her passion for mommas and babies radiates from her. She will support you in whatever birth plan you create and be there for you every step of the way. We are beyond blessed to know her and consider her family. If you are considering a doula, 10 out of 5 stars I would recommend Katie McKinney!

Katie is a phenomenal doula. My husband and I fully acknowledge that I had the birth I wanted because of Katie. When I said "I can't do this" she reminded me that I could. When I didn't want to move around, she encouraged me. Her voice was calming, her words of encouragement helped me and my husband. She came prepared with a birthing ball. I can't thank her enough for being an amazing support person in our birthing space. 

she helped my husband on how to help me through labor and delivery. 

you want a doula like Katie at your birth. She became a lifetime friend and for that, we are thankful  

"super great. 12/10 would recommend" - my husband
