Testimonial for Kira Hendricksen

I. LOVE. KIRA. I knew she was the doula for me when we first met. I interviewed 4 other doulas. When I met her, I was about 22 weeks along. She was spunky, kind, loving, caring and interested in me. All the other doulas were more interested in my midwife or birthing place. However, from the very beginning of our relationship, she cared about how I was doing.

From the time I hired her to about 40 weeks, she checked in on me regularly. After 40 weeks, she checked in on me almost daily. It meant a lot as I was a first time mom.

I was in labor for two days before my sweet baby boy was born. But she came to assist the first day I was in labor. She really helped equip and encourage my mom and husband to be there for me during labor. I felt comfortable enough to tell her what I needed and wanted. Friday was when stuff really got going and she came over right away. She gave such wonderful support. She gave me different positions to try as well as pain management help. She stayed all day and when we had to do a hospital transfer, she came with us. She stayed through it all.

She also came to visit me twice after birth. The first time, we talked through the birth; what I liked, what I didn't like, what I would like to do differently, etc. The second time, she came to go for a walk with my newborn. It was nice to have some alone time.

Kira was beyond caring, loving and attentive to me before, during and after my birth. When it comes to have more kids later on, I will definitely be talking to Kira again.
