I love Katie! From the first time I met her I felt like she was my mom or sister in the way she is so comforting. She never made me feel bad for asking a million questions and really cares about her clients. She knows how to put me at ease. As a first time mother to be, I felt so unprepared and I knew my husband was also nervous in knowing how to support me when the time came. But thanks the the training, material and resources Katie gave us, I felt empowered and had the confidence to speak up for myself once we got to the hospital. Also when I first told the staff I wanted everything completely natural they didn't believe me until I said Katie was my doula. My baby came so fast he surprised us all, but Katie still came and jumped right in taking pictures and helping me know how to get my little guy to latch on. If I were to do it over I would still pick her every time. As my husband said "she is worth every cent and more as a doula!"
I remember meeting Katie for the first time. It was before I was even pregnant and after meeting her I knew she was someone that would be an amazing support. When we got pregnant Ben and I called her right away and set up a meeting. For the full 9 months she was there for us to answer any questions and concerns we had. The class Katie taught was really helpful too and prepared us really well.
When it was time for our little Dillon to arrive I felt completely ready and confident that we could do it. She met us at the hospital and was there supporting both me and my husband. Ben and I seriously can not imagine how our 28 hours of labor would have gone without her comforting support. We recommend Katie to everyone she was just an important part of our experience. Katie you are seriously amazing.
Katie was so wonderful for both me and my husband during pregnancy and labor and delivery. I was so comfortable with her calm but knowledgeable personality. She was right fit for us. Her background in nursing helped me have the confidence I was looking for to enter labor and delivery feeling prepared and calm. I appreciated that she was so available to me when i had questions or concerns. She did her best to answer them thoroughly and provide me with resources. Katie offered a thorough, wholistic childbirth class that helped both me and my husband (first time father) feel more confident, too.
During labor and delivery, Katie knew when to step in and offer help and when i needed space to let my body do its work. She was wonderful at following my cues and knowing what i might need. She was also very helpful gently telling my husband what I might need, also.
I was very pleased with her lactation support, as well!
I highly recommend Katie Logan based on her personality, qualifications, and wholistic approach to birth and beyond.
Katie provided phenomenal support for my husband and I! She went above and beyond to make sure I was relaxed during labor and she knew what interventions to use without me needing to ask for them! After my baby was born, she made sure he was latching correctly. She also followed up with me a few weeks after he was born to make sure breastfeeding was still going well. She is very knowledgeable about all areas of pregnancy, labor and delivery, and breastfeeding. I also highly recommend her birthing class as it helped me prepare for labor. I highly recommend Katie to anyone considering a doula!
Katie was an amazing doula for my first birthing experience. She really helped to calm and coach me! She was very helpful to us by having different experiences there for me to try such as oils, candles, bath, massage and helping me feel strong and calm. We would recommend her to anyone!
My wife and I welcomed a baby boy into the world on January 4th of this year...... it was a wonderful experience on all accounts! The labor did get long, which was very unnverving at times, and as a husband who had never been through a child birth, I can tell you that having Katie in the room was very comforting..... Katie was able to keep me calm, which in turn prevented me from making my wife anxious! Another big plus was the fact that Katie knew her way around the delivery room so well....... Katie knew what my wife was asking for and was able to find it, which allowed me to focus on "being there" for my wife rather than buzzing the nurses station to help find what we needed. My wife and I cannot say enough good things about the entire experience with Katie, from the birthing class to the actual delivery. Having been able to ask Katie so many questions before the delivery, it gave us the opportunity to go into the birth with confidence and excitement, which made for a very positive experience!

Our experience with Katie is was amazing. I don't believe I would have had the brith I was looking for with out her. It was also a relief for me to know that my husband had support during our natural birth. Both sides of our family live 12-13 hours away, so knowing Katie was there put our minds at ease. If you are debating hiring a doula, don't second guess. It will be the best discison you make.
We have called on Katie for birth coaching and as a lactation specialist. Every single time is worth the investment! The coaching she provided put my husband and I at ease and gave us several ideas and discussion points to think about prior to baby's arrival. I had difficulty with breastfeeding and reached out to Katie several times and she did two home visits. She was informative, patient, and came up with solutions! Baby and momma couldn't have done it all and corrected our issues as quickly as we did without Katie. We are very grateful!!
