Katie was everything I could have asked for and more from a doula. She is caring, compassionate, supportive, and extremely knowledgeable about pregnancy in general.

From the moment we spoke on the phone initially, I could tell she was 100% invested. Her passion towards helping others shines through and I always felt that.

One moment I’ll always remember is her comforting me by my hospital bed when I had bad “epidural shakes.” It was late, I was nervous, and nothing seemed to really help. Her simply moving over to my bed and holding my hand reminded me everything was going to be okay in the end.

She also offered to help me during labor in any way, even in the “embarrassing”’moments. She reassured me she doesn’t mind; it is clear she is willing on go the extra mile. My husband and I know you’ll have a great experience with her, too!!

I was filled with mixed emotions going into labor in delivery to have my first child. Both anxious and excited to meet my baby. While unexpectedly going through a divorce while pregnant I knew I wanted a doula to be my main support person during L&D. With Katie as my doula and my 2 best friends at my side I had an empowering team of women encouraging me every step of the way. My L&D experience far exceeded my expectations. I felt the safety and security of my medical team at the hospital while also experiencing overwhelming peace and comfort that Katie was sure to provide. Katie set the tone for the entire room. Blinds closed, lights dimmed, battery lit candles throughout the room. Knowing my baby was not in the most optimal position for delivery, Katie supported me and coached me through exercises in labor to help spin baby. No L&D nurse would have had the time to be 1:1 with me for quite so long. Katie was literally holding me up, walking the halls, talking me through contractions, massaging my back, assisting me to the bathroom. She was so attentive without the need for me to even vocalize what I was experiencing she would jump into action with a new tool or way to offer comfort. I could not have chosen a better support person to have by my side at what was likely the most vulnerable time in my life. Without a doubt Katie's expertise helped facilitate a safe labor and delivery of my son. I am forever grateful for the love and support she showed me that day.

I am so blessed that Katie’s TikTok came across my page. I wanted a doula but honestly was overwhelmed with where to start. Upon talking to Katie and meeting her in person I knew she is who I wanted to have alongside me. And every subsequent visit with Katie reaffirmed my decision to hire Katie. Katie is very knowledgeable and listens so well. Katie really stepped up when I needed her the most. Which was surprisingly not during labor and delivery (although she was a big help then too). She was able to help me calm down, collect my thoughts, gather information, and advocate for myself. Ultimately the time Katie took with me after I sent a panic text message to her after my 39 week appointment is what helped encourage me to fight for myself and the birth I always imagined! And because of her guidance I had a successful VBAC! Katie goes above and beyond is truly prepared for anything you throw her way! I can’t thank her enough!

My experience with Katie was wonderful and I would highly recommend her as a doula! She was incredibly involved throughout the labor and delivery and very compassionate and supportive. Katie changed my entire labor and delivery experience to make it very postive! In the prenatal visits, I felt that Katie really listened to me and answered all of my questions. In the labor and delivery, Katie went above and beyond expectations. Throughout, Katie made sure I was comfortable, helped me understand what the nurses/doctors were saying so I could make an informed decision, and was very attentive. She gave me information, so I could decide when I felt that I needed an epidural and supported all of my birth decisions. Katie was easy to talk to and supported me so I could have a postive birth experience! My family and I are so grateful for Katie!

Katie was a gift! Truly I couldn't have achieved my goals of a natural delivery without her support, encouragement, knowledge and kindness throughout the whole delivery! Thankful for her and what she does!

This was my 5th baby and 1st time hiring a doula and My experience with Katie was absolutely phenomenal, I highly recommend Katie if your looking for a doula, I hired Katie late in my pregnancy, I wasn't sure what I was expecting from it other than I wanted more support than what my husband could offer without physically telling him what to do.  I also wanted to labor as long as possible without getting an epidural. Let me just say, Katie gave me the birthing and labor experience I've always dreamed of having, she was even very helpful on giving me ideas and things to try to get labor started on its own, and i did indeed go into labor at 41 weeks, a day before my induction although my labor went fast, she was very much hands on! And went above and beyond my expectations. Because of her, I had the support I needed, and I was able to have an unmedicated birth because she was so helpful through each and every contraction. If your looking for an amazing doula who cares and very passionate at what she does, hire Katie, you won't regret it, if anything you'll regret not hiring her at all.
