Koko is AMAZING. My husband and I met with Koko when I was 30 weeks pregnant. It was the best decision for our family and for our birth experience. I was really hoping and praying that I was not going to have to be induced but in the end knew that it was a high possibility. Once I got admitted and it finally sunk in that I was getting induced at 37 weeks (all of which I really did not want to do) I was very emotional about it. I called Koko and told her that I was getting admitted and that phone call and her kind words/guidance were EXACTLY what I needed to hear to accept what was happening and embrace it. She helped my husband with ways to help me through my contractions which was such a bonding experience for me and my husband. I was able to have my baby without an epidural which is something I really wanted. She brought so much peace through my labor and it truly was a magical experience with a lot of help from Koko. We highly recommend her!

Koko is absolutely amazing! This was my first pregnancy and was shooting for an intervention free labor. This would have never been possible without her! She was so comforting and helpful the entire labor. She also helped guide my husband to be the best support he could be. She was very helpful when it came time to make important decisions at home and at the hospital. She also had no time limit on how long she would be with us during the labor, which was very convienient when the baby decided to take 36 hrs :). I loved her weekly checkins and prayer requests. She always reminded me that this whole journey was part of God's plan, and to turn to Him when I needed support. Her delicious soup she brought me postpartum was the icing on the cake. We are so thankful for her and that she was a part of our birth story. Highly recommend.

Koko is a GEM! I found her to encapsulate my placenta. She was extremely quick to respond and throughout all communication, and she did such a beautiful job! I highly recommend her!

I was so blessed to have Koko as my doula. She has a very sweet and loving presence, and you can easily tell how passionate she is about helping mothers through the labor process. She truly loves the miracle of childbirth. We had a couple pre-natal visits where she gave me a ton of information that was extremely helpful during labor! She came over as soon as I asked her to during labor, and helped guide me through the entire process. Her knowledge and experience was so helpful and I have no idea how we would've gotten through this as smoothly without her. She is so supportive and understanding and we prayed together a few times when things got intense and I wanted to pray. She has the most beautiful prayers. My labor was such a beautiful experience and having Koko made the world of a difference. She also came to check on us postpartum. She genuinely loves and cares for the mommas she works for! She is a blessing!

Koko was the best! From our very first meeting Koko was kind, gentle, and informative. She provided abundant amounts of information and really helped my husband and I vet out which birth plan would be most ideal for us and our child. When I (finally!) went into labor Koko was over to support in a matter of minutes from when I called. She helped remind me of different movements I could try, breathing through contractions, and that I was doing a great job! She helped guide my husband to find ways to comfort me without him taking away from my focus. 

Koko was absolutely brilliant, her understanding of the joys and challenges of childbirth cannot be matched!  Koko has an innate understanding of how amazing bringing a child into this world is; she can encompass that joy while also being honest, informative, and preparing you for the realities of this experience. 

Koko thank you for sharing all your knowledge and guiding both myself and my husband through the birthing process. It is because of that knowledge and support that we succeeded in having a healthy, natural birth!

Koleen was our doula for my recent VBAC in May 2021. She is simply amazing!! From my first prenatal visit to my post partum visit, she was exactly what our family needed. She is caring, compassionate and knows what she is doing. My birth story threw us for a loop as labor came on so quickly that I didn't even make it to my planned hospital! Koko talked me through my early and active labor. When my husband and I rushed to the nearest hospital, she didn't skip a beat in the change of plans and met us right at the hospital. She kept me sane through the pushing and rush of everything.

She was always responsive when I was updating her throughout my pregnancy or if I had questions she always answered them fully. She truly cares and wants the best birth experience for you. When we found out we were pregnant I knew I had to have a doula. I believe she is a big reason we were successful with the VBAC. Thank you so much Koko for helping make this birth an amazing experience!
