Testimonial for Kate Dewey & Jane Drichta

Kate did an incredible job of assessing what I’d need to know to successfully execute my VBAC drug free. I was embarrassed at how little I knew about vaginal delivery. Kate sensitively and respectfully educated me. She explained my body’s pain management abilities. She made me feel so ready to have my baby naturally. When I was in labor, Kate did exactly what I needed and wanted: she distracted me when I was in the bath during early labor; she calmly reminded me how to breathe the pain away; she set up a ball and pillows to make me comfortable when the contractions got worse; she watched gLee with me to take my mind off of the pain; she made me eat (my husband could not); and she settled me comfortably into the car to get to the hospital. At the hospital, my dear husband just didn’t know what to say and do. Kate did. She advocated my needs to the nursing staff. She reassured and comforted me. I progressed from 3 cm to 10 cm naturally in one hour at the hospital, undoubtedly because I was so comfortable in the atmosphere Kate set up for me. Every time I said I couldn’t do it, Kate said that I could and I believed her. There was a complication during the pushing and the room had nearly a dozen people in it, nervously bustling about. Without Kate, I would have panicked. She was so calm and so confident. I was able to do my work birthing because of my clear state of mind, which was clearly due to Kate’s positive and confident manner. I really believe that without Kate, I would have had to get drugs. There’s no way that hospital staff or my husband could have offered me the support that Kate did. After the baby was born, Kate ooh’d and aah’d my gorgeous baby and also helped me breastfeed successfully for the first time ever! I highly recommend Kate Rollins for your doula!
