Testimonial for Katie Terry

I came very close to hiring Katie during my first pregnancy, but eventually "chickened out". I was experiencing a lot of self doubt regarding natural childbirth. I ended up struggling with breathing/relaxing during my labor and received an epidural late in labor. My daughter arrived healthy and for that I'm grateful, but I didn't like how "out of control" I felt. I was given medication that made it very difficult to focus & I wasnt given any instructions to leave my bed. I was nearly 9cm before receiving my epidural and immediately after I was at 10cm & given instructions to push. Had I been able to focus, breath correctly & move around I believe my 1st experience would have been much better. So, when I found out that I was pregnant with my 2nd child, I felt very strongly that I wanted to at least give it a shot. After meeting all of the lovely doulas of Shoals Doula, I felt the strongest connection with Katie! From that moment on she was in the loop on Doctor's visits, my progress, even just calls/texts to just see how I was feeling & dealing with my pregnancy. Her sincerity was very touching and appreciated! I ended up making it to 41 weeks 3 days! Katie knew of my desire to avoid medicinal induction if at all possible and informed me of EVERY natural method under the sun! Katie even accompanied me to my acupuncturist appointment which ultimately sent me into labor, Woo Hoo!!! During labor she was a Godsend from massage, to switching positions, walking stairs, distracting convo, filling/refilling my tub, helpful instructions for my husband & ultimately VERY helpful suggestions for my final stages of labor. She was a positive light throughout my pregnancy and labor. My husband and I were so grateful! I couldn't imagine a better birth experience and I am so thankful for Shoals Doula for their services!
