Nicolle Mattingly

We hired Katie as our doula pretty early on in my pregnancy and from day 1, she was so supportive, knowledgeable and helpful. During my pregnancy I also did the 5-week Sacred Pregnancy Journey led by Katie and I highly recommend this to any expecting mamas! When it came time to bring my little one into this world, Katie was by my side as an essential part of my birth team. As a first time mama-to-be, it was incredibly helpful to have someone there who knew what to expect, how to support me, and who had been through unmedicated births herself. Katie has a reassuring, calming air about her and I truly loved having her as my doula.

Katie was such a great support for my home birth team. I shared my concerns and preferences for my birth and labor before and during and I got exactly what I wanted. I am not the "in your face" type of birther and I like to zone out and she responded well to that. I particularly enjoyed how she was a great support to my midwives and to my husband and especially my older child, who was present during the birth. She also did such a wonderful job with informing me and introducing me about placenta encapsulation, which I had never even considered until meeting Katie and I felt safe and informed.

Katie worked so well with the medical professionals and my family and that's exactly what I wanted during my home birth. I couldn't have asked for a better support system with Katie included.

I was so lucky to find Katie during my third trimester. After watching "The Business of Being Born" my husband and I completely changed our birth plan. Our midwife recommended finding a doula to help with our natural birth plan, and after interviewing Katie we knew she was the one we wanted to be a part of bringing our daughter into the world. Katie helped me prepare for labor by providing educational materials, links and videos that helped me feel better prepared for labor. In addition, she helped my husband feel confident in his ability to help me through labor. On the actual day of birth, Katie was amazing and helped with our unplanned home birth (things went fast!) by helping me to mentally cope with the pain of labor, helped me husband provide the support that encouraged me and motivated me, and even helped by holding my leg! Katie made our birth experience feel joyful, peaceful, and calm. I wouldn't change anything about our birth, and I know in my heart that Katie is the one who helped make it happen. I am eternally grateful for her presence at the birth, and for all the work she did to help prepare me for labor. In addition, Katie helped make my postpartum experience better by providing support and help with breastfeeding, and did my placenta encapsulation! I highly recommend her, and know that she'll help bring positive energy and love to any birth experience!
