Kaitlin is a wonderful doula - she worked with our baby for her first few months as a post-partum overnight doula. She was very nurturing and offered great advice. As a tired mom of two, it was amazing having a few uniterrupted hours of sleep! Having a night-time doula made my post-partum experience positive and manageable (with my first child, i was extremely overwhelmed). Kaitlin is friendly and knowledgable but not overwhelming. It was a pleasure to work with her.
The first time I spoke with Kaitlin over the phone, I was very pregnant with my second child and felt anxious about my transition into becoming a mother of two small children. I relayed my concern about making certain my two year old would be taken care of while I adjusted to life with another newborn. Kaitlin listened to my tales of struggles with breastfeeding my now toddler and how the prospect of finding myself in a similar situation was causing me more stress than I needed. I was grateful that she would be coming to me with education in breastfeeding in addition to all of her other experiences!
In person, Kaitlin was even more warm and understanding than I had hoped for. She interracted with my toddler like a pro, like they had long been friends. Our initial meeting helped to relieve my mind before the baby came; this time I was assuring I'd have the help at home that I lacked when I had my first child. We chatted with ease and I was very much looking forward to the prospect of including her as a part of my postpartum care.
For my first few months with two babies at home, Kaitlin joined us in our space by holding, playing, and interracting with my children. She asked me how I was doing every time I greeted her at the door and asked what I needed help with. Above all else, Kaitlin helped me to maintain a connection with myself as a person (and not just an overwhelmed mother!). We talked openly and I felt an immediate connection with her as a friend.
Kaitlin is kind, gentle, wise, and extremely well-suited for assisting families when expecting and welcoming a new baby into their lives. I would, without hesitation, recommend Kaitlin to anyone seeking a doula's care during their pregnancy and/or postpartum journey.
