Testimonial for Kira Hendricksen

We hired Kira for the delivery of my son and third baby.  With the support of my husband I had been able to deliver naturally with my first two babies so I was uncertain a doula was necessary for my third delivery.  As my due date drew nearer I started to feel anxious about delivery and recalled many mixed emotions that had come up during the delivery of my second daughter, who was born preterm.  During my second daugter's birth there was a sense of urgency and I felt out of control about how things were progressing.  Hiring Kira was the best choice I could have made for the birth of my son to repair the lack of control I had previously experienced.  During my first meeting with Kira she really listened to my concerns about potentially having another preterm baby, my desire to want to deliver him naturally but being open to letting that change, and how I wanted to have my third delivery go well.  I was initially hesitant about hiring Kira because she is newer to the field but my experience with her erased all that concern and I would recommend her without hesitation. Kira worked really well as a part of my birth team with my husband and my midwife.  She arrived really promptly (which was essential as I started labor and delivered within two hours).  She held my hand, massaged my back and provided the perfect amount of reassurance I needed to stay calm and in control of my delivery.  She advocated for me in the delivery room about positioning and about avoiding an IV that I knew would impinge on my comfort during labor and delivery.  My birth experience was just as I needed it to be and Kira played a key role in that.  I can't thank her enough!
