Kayla provided such wonderful support during my pregnancy and birth! She respected my natural birthing decisions/plan and always helped me feel in control of my birth. Her confidence and calm aura was so assuring throughout the entire birthing process. She made sure I was taken care of from the moment she arrived at our house until the moment she left after baby was born. I am so grateful she was part of my birthing team and would highly recommend Kayla to anyone searching for doula support!
I m so thankful I had Kayla as my doula and couldn't have done it without her! She was so supportive, never left my side, helped me in ways I didn't think I needed it. My fiancé and I were so happy we had her. Not only was she there for me but she helped him so much too! I tell everyone about our experience and recommend Kayla all the time! It's so worth it!! Thanks for all you did Kayla??
Kayla is currently supporting our family as a postpartum doula. I am home with baby twin boys for 2 weeks at a time while their dad works away. It had been extremely overwhelming and Kayla comes in and helps in any way I need, sometimes I don't even know I needed until she did it. From making sure I'm eating at least one healthy meal a day, allowing me to have a bath and just check out for a few minutes, go to an appointment without dragging my boys with me or just having coffee with me and providing me a safe space to talk about all my feelings. I cannot recommend her enough. Because of her I feel that I can truly be in the moment with my boys and enjoy being a mom without the extra pressures of my laundry not being folded or my kitchen being a disaster. If I were planing anymore kids I 1000% would not do it without her.
Kayla supported my family as a postpartum doula. We have 2 young children, 2 newborns, pets, and a whole lot of unplanned life chaos. Kayla created a safe feeling space, and provided an incredible amount of support through some stressful moments. We never knew what each day was bringing, and Kayla came with an open, positive attitude each day, and helped support in whatever way we needed that day. This is our first time hiring a postpartum doula, and we would hire Kayla again in a heartbeat! Thank you for holding space for our family Kayla, and walking along side us.
If you are contemplating hiring a doula, don't hesitate. Kayla was absolutely wonderful during my birth and pregnancy. I wouldn't even consider giving birth again without her by my side. She was supportive, informative and a great resource. I had a tough time at the end of my pregnancy and her words of encouragement made the world of difference. I couldn't even imagine what my birth experience would have been without her. I felt like superwoman after having my baby and if I didn't have Kayla to guide me along the way, it would have been a much different experience. I'm so grateful I had her. The birth of my son was one of the best experiences I have ever had, made possible with her help.
Classes offered by Modern Nest were very helpful to both my husband and I to get some more in depth information that isn't really supplied by doctors. My husband felt like he knew what the signs of labor were after attending the Prenatal in a Day class and he said he wasn't confident before then.
Wonderful support for my wife to be able to talk to when she was worried after hours. Kayla was actually recommended by one of my friends whose wife used Modern Nest for both their babies. He said the doula was a great support for both of us and I couldn't agree more.
Kayla was an incredible support to my husband and I before, during and after the birth of our daughter.
From the moment we hired Kayla she was incredibly supportive and understanding. She really took the time to get to know us as a couple and our preferences. She also helped explain some of our options so that we could make informed decisions about our care and the care of our child once born.
Our labour and birthing experience could not have gone better. I had a relatively quick, minimal pain and minimal tearing unmedicated experience. Kayla made both my husband and I feel supported during the labour and birth. Her techniques during the pushing phase made a huge difference in my ability to relax between pushes. Additionally, her Tens machine was super helpful during my contractions and allowed me to relax and breathe through an unmedicated labour.
After the birth Kayla followed up with both my husband and I regularly to ensure we were doing okay. She offered tips and additional support. It was really helpful for us to have that extra person to talk to and ask questions during the first few months of our little girls life. Just knowing we had her there provided relaxation as we entered parenthood.
I highly recommend Kayla and would absolutely hire her again.
We are so grateful to have had Kayla on our birth journey. Not just for myself, but for my husband. She is kind and calming.
Especially after birth she was always available for questions via text or even phone call. Those days / few weeks after birth can be very overwhelming for a first time Mom with many questions marks flying over your head.
She also took amazing photos of us during labour and delivery.
At first we weren’t sure if we really need a Doula. But we are so happy we had Kayla with us! We highly recommend Kayla!
Thank you Kayla!
Kayla was great! I was overwhelmed trying to support Skylar so having someone that has the experience to help us along was amazing.
We were so lucky to have Kayla attend the birth of our third child as our Doula. Having had a C-section with our second child, we wanted to maximize our chances of a successful VBAC delivery and Doula services are proven to positively influence birthing experiences in all ways.
We were so impressed with Kayla.
She has a calming, respectful, helpful presence and fantastic intuition and so perfectly holds space for the unfolding of labour and delivery. She is also highly skilled in knowledge about birth and offered very helpful suggestions in the most respectful and empowering way.
As is common, my partner wondered how having a Doula would fit with his presence at the birth, but I am here to tell you officially that having a Doula can strongly improve the experience between partners because so much of the behind-the-scene care and logistics are taken care of by Kayla and allowed space for both of us to be present and connected during labour and delivery.
I highly recommend Kayla and feel lucky that future mamas in Kamloops will have access to her as a resource.
Kayla was an amazing support person to both myself and my partner during the labor and delivery of our daughter at home. She is so kind, gentle and knowledgeable. We legitimately could have not done it without her guidance. She even took photos and videos that we will have to cherish forever. We would both recommend using Kayla as your doula and look forward to having her at our next birth! Thank you Kayla xoxo
Kayla was the perfect support member through labour, delivery, and postpartum that we never knew we needed, and we cannot say enough how thankful we were to have her with us on the craziest journey.
Kayla was available to us whenever we needed and had many helpful suggestions throughout the whole process. Besides my husband, hers was the only other voice I could hear coaching me through delivery.
I cannot say enough good things about her care, and would highly recommend her to anyone interested in having a doula.
Kayla is the calming force that we underestimated how much we needed. We weren't sure if we needed a doula but because it was our first child we wanted to give everything a try. Our baby came sudden and 5 weeks early. We had only had the initial meeting with Kayla but that didn't stop her from giving us her full support. Her knowledge about the process, body's signs, and the hospital was so valuable.
She stayed with me in the early stage while my fiance could grab the bags from the car and get us food. She taught him different holds and techniques to help me through the contractions. She brought her TENS machine for me to use which was a huge help!
We weren't sure if we wanted photos of the process but we figured that we could always not use or keep them. Kayla captured beutiful and intimate moments between my fiance and I during labour and then with our new baby right after she was born. We are eternally grateful for them.
Kayla was patient, non-judgemental, and empathetic. She struck a great balance of supportive comments, helping physically, and knowing when distactions were needed.
I am so incredibly thankful I had Kayla along with me through the crazy, emotional and beautiful ride that pregnancy, birth and postpartum is!
Kayla is a calm, steady and nurturing presence. She makes you feel safe, reassured, encouraged, and listened to.
She has an innate ability to read a situation and your emotions/ reactions to it and somehow does exactly what you are needing without you even having to ask for it! As a new mom half the time I didn’t even know what I needed, and yet somehow Kayla always did!
When I brought up the idea of hiring a doula to my partner he was hesitant. My husband is more of a private person and I think he felt nervous about allowing another person into our journey as it is an intimate journey. However, he agreed to whatever I wanted to do and whatever would make me feel best during this time! He is so happy we hired a doula in the end and especially that it was Kayla! During the birth she also was able to reassure and support him and teach him some techniques like the hip squeeze so he could help support me and be apart of it and be a relaxed and present support to me during the birth! That allowed him to really be hands on and present In the birth and make it so much more memorable for him as well and make him feel like he really could be a help to me during it! It also was SO powerful for me to have my husband so hands on during it and feel like we were doing it together! It made it so much more intimate!
All the support and advice Kayla gave us postpartum was so spot on to what we needed to hear and experience.
Being able to feel supported, listened to, safe and encouraged are incredibly important during this time. I believe that made a significant impact on my journey! One that I am incredibly thankful for!! Thank you Kayla for giving that to us!
If your on the fence about weather or not to get a doula, do yourself a favour and call this girl up!!
Kayla was our doula for the birth of my first child and she was amazing; supportive for not only myself but my husband also. She was attentive and compassionate and does excellent hip squeezes! While my birth definitely didn't go as I had hoped, Kayla was there to support and enourage me though it, and was incredibly empathetic following my son's birth. I would highly recommend her to all pregnant women considering a doula.
Kayla's patient, nurturing, non-judgemental and genuine personality leads her to be a natural at doula work! It is evident she is passionate about her career and supporting families through all the emotions that come with pregnancy, child birth and postnatal recovery.
Kayla is wonderful at reading people's needs. I had been alone at the hospital (COVID protocol) for hours waiting to hear if my scheduled cesarean would need to be performed 6 days earlier than my original surgery date. My husband was home with our toddler and I had told Kayla I was fine to wait by myself. However, Kayla decided to come to the hospital anyways (on short notice) to wait with me. I'm so thankful she did! After 10 hours at the hospital (while fasting), I was exhausted and emotionally overwhelmed. Kayla had a steady, calm manner and helped me process medical information/options/implications for the birth. She was with me until I was pushed into the OR because my husband hadn't arrived at the hospital yet.
The birth of our firstborn was traumatic. Kayla did a great job continually checking in with my husband and I before and after our sweet baby girl arrived. Thanks for everything, Kayla!
