Testimonial for Kate Dewey & Jane Drichta

My doula introduced me to Kate, I was only at 37 weeks and with my first. My original doula was heading out of town for a few days and we wanted to be on the safe side because I was full term at that point. I had a slow leak in my bag of waters for a 2 and a half days.  Kate was very knowledgeable and had lots of advice for me to help start my contractions naturally. My husband call Kate to come to our home when my labor really picked up. She showed up very quickly and jumped right in helping me both physically and emotionally-she was such a godsend! I didn't know what to do with myself, my body felt out of control. Kate was very reassuring and compassionate to my state of mind she was able to provide me with comfort. I got really scared at one point and Kate knew just what to say to ease my mind, she kept reassuring me that this was normal and natural and everything was as it should be. I also think it's nice to be with someone who actually has given birth and has first hand experience. Kate had ton's of great ideas of things I could do to help my labor progress and distract me. She also knew right where to push on my back; this was so relieving. She guided my husband and showed him places to push and rub on me. Kate had a great breathing technique that was different then we had originally practiced but worked like a charm. I ended up pushing for 6 hours and 10 minutes-from 3:30am until 9:40 am it was very intense. Kate never left my side, she held my hand and supported me through the entire night. Kate has a natural nurturing and loving energy yet is very strong and confident. Even though my labor came early and Kate was not part of my original plan, I felt so comfortable with her and was definitely in great hands. I'm so happy Kate was with me for my birth. Kate has an amazing talent for what she does and I highly recommend her.
