I had the privilege of working with Krista during my pregnancy and childbirth, and I highly recommend her as a doula. From our initial consultation to the postpartum period, Krista was compassionate, knowledgeable, and always available to support me through every step of the process.

Krista's calm and reassuring presence helped ease our anxieties and fears about going into labor and delivery. Answering questions and providing us with knowledge needed to make informed decisions about the birthing process.

Overall, Krista is a fantastic doula who truly cares about her clients and their families. Her expertise, positive attitude, and unwavering support made our birth experience a truly memorable one. Thank you, Krista, for being an amazing doula.

Krista provided such genuine and extensive support during my pregnancy and birth.  We met multiple times in person and also virtually to discuss my birth plan and go through the stages of labor, including how my partner could help assist.  My baby was still breech at 34 weeks, so Krista helped me find a chiropractor who specialized in the Webster technique and provided some resources on turning breech babies naturally.  My OB attempted an ECV at 37 weeks and Krista was there for the entire procedure, helping me ask the right questions and providing emotional support.  When flipping efforts proved unsuccessful, my c-section was scheduled.  Krista was there in the recovery room with me immediately following the surgery while my partner stayed in the NICU with baby, and taught me to hand express since I was unable to start breastfeeding immediately.  My partner and I were so grateful to have Krista there during this entire process, she is a source of knowledge and steadiness in the often unknown and ever changing birth journey!
