Testimonial for Katie Terry

I knew that I wanted a natural birth, and at nearly 38 weeks pregnant with our first baby, my husband and I finally decided to hire a doula. I met with Katie and felt an instant connection. Her welcoming personality and enthusiasm added to our excitement about our coming baby. She took time to get to know both of us and find out what exactly I wanted for my birth. She was knowledgeable and explained what we could expect throughout labor. Then, a week later my doctor decided that things were not progressing correctly, and for the baby and my safety, we would have to do a caesarian section the next morning. I was devastated and terrified. When I called Katie to let her know, she really went above and beyond to make me feel reassured. She gave me helpful information to see if we could get things back on the natural track, although ultimately we did have to go through with the C - section delivery. Katie worked with me to redo my birth plan so that even though I was not going to have the natural birth I had envisioned, I would still be able to have a positive birth experience. The morning of my baby’s birth Katie was absolutely wonderful. Although I did not have the opportunity to have her support physically throughout my labor, I absolutely had her support emotionally. She was indispensable before and after baby E’s delivery, and made sure that I was able to cuddle and successfully breastfeed as soon as I was out of the operating room. I tell everyone how great Katie is and how big of a part she played in E’s birth. The only regret that I have is that I waited so long to contact her! Next time she is going to be one of the first calls I make! Overall I can’t say enough good things about Katie. The love she has for her work is apparent, and inspiring. I really can’t thank or recommend her enough.
