Testimonial for Kim O'Rourke

I can't say enough good things about Kim. My husband and I chose Kim as our doula based on the high number of births she had attended (the number has since grown quite a bit), the fact that she gave birth naturally four times (three times at the hospital where I gave birth, and once at home), and the fact that she is very familiar with our hospital and the nurses/doctors there.

Kim is not only an experienced and knowledgeable doula and lactation consultant, but she is also a very kind, loving, and supportive person. I unfortunately had to have a c-section (we knew ahead of time), and it took a long time for me to get over it emotionally. Kim was there every step of the way, from the moment we found out that this would be the case, through the surgery (literally at my side and holding my hand), and during my recovery.

I then relied quite heavily on Kim for breastfeeding advice and for support during a brief but intense period of post-partum depression. Kim reassured me that we all struggle adjusting to motherhood, but it gets easier with time. (True!) I was consistently impressed with Kim's responsiveness, availability, and willingness to go the extra mile to research issues and answer my questions. Kim checked up on me more often than my doctor did!

What I also appreciate about Kim is that she is not "preachy." She will explain things to you from a medical perspective, then give you her own opinion based on her experiences with her children, and then support whatever decision you make. She does not judge or criticize.

Even though I'm now much more "settled" and confident as a mother, which means that I don't contact Kim as much as I used to, I still consider her a friend and valuable resource. In fact, my sister-in-law just had a baby, and whenever I give her advice, much of it is attributable to Kim! Simply put, you will not regret choosing Kim as your doula, and I would recommend her to anyone.
