Testimonial for Kate Dewey & Jane Drichta

My experience with Kate was great.  My Doula, Tiffany, had another birth that she was attending when I went into labor so she had Kate contact us.  From the first time I spoke with her, while having contractions at home, I was relieved by her calm demeanor and reassurance.  Kate met us at the hospital as soon as we got there.  During early labor, my contractions were painful and I started having back labor.  Kate knew right where to push during each contraction the take the pressure off my tailbone and it made them so much more tolerable.  As they started to get stronger, she had me get in different positions to try and flip the baby so he wasn't anterior anymore and what we tried seemed to have worked.  As my labor progressed, she helped me remember to breath and suggested different things we could do.  I could tell that she was very knowledgable and confident in what we were doing.  I wasn't progressing very fast on my own so later that night they had to start pitocin.  She started me a warm bath to get into and it helped SO much (until the pit was turned up and I could no longer take the pain).  At around 6 the next morning I decided to get the Epidural and she let me lean on her during the whole procedure, which took away alot of my stress.  I am so thankful to have had Kate there during my labor-she truly helped me SO much and I'm glad I got the chance to share my birth experience with both her and Tiffany.
