Testimonial for Karen Ganga Huslik, CLD(CBI), RNC- OB, PES(WBC) CLC, MAP, CCT

For my second homebirth, I had a good idea what I was looking for in a doula.  I wanted someone who would help turn my home into the most relaxing atmosphere possible and at the same time provide me with physical support for labor discomfort.  Karen turned out to be exactly what I was looking for.  She first interviewed me to get an idea of what I liked and to understand what I was looking for in a doula.  I really appreciated this. We had weekly phone calls in the third trimester to address any questions I may have.  When I was in labor she used a rebozo which really reduced the pressure of the contractions.  She assisted me in any way that I wanted, but also left me on my own when I did not seek out her help, so not to overmanage anything.  It was a wonderful balance.  Her calm energy and the calm music that she played really helped me stay in the focused/birthing mindset that I needed to be in.  When I wanted to go for a walk outside, she joined me for as long as I went - as we stopped and hugged at each contraction.  I will forever feel guilty for how hard I held her as I pushed my baby out, but I guess she understood how that helped me and was so gracious to be such a physical support.  I highly recommend Karen if you are looking for a calming presence to aid you in a natural birth and for unconditional pre and during labor support.
