Testimonial for Whitney Koehle

I took the prenatal classes and read the books preparing myself for what childbirth would entail. All the preparation did little in comparison to what Whitney’s support and guidance offered me. I can honestly say I could not have done as well as I did without her by my side. Her knowledge and technique helped to make my labour a positive and truthfully rewarding experience.

My labour started early in the morning hours and progressed slowly the rest of the day. I experienced back labour and was not at all ready for this. Whitney stood (and knelt) by my side providing encouraging words and soothing massages the entire time. Really she aided me in any way I asked including running me a bath as the labour carried on into the next day and pain medications did nothing to help me sleep.

When I was ready to return to the Hospital the next morning, she drove my partner and me there. She was right by my side in the delivery room. Ready still with loving words and the willingness to assist me in any way she could. Her approach was supportive and respectful. She held my hand when I needed her to but also gave me space when I needed this. In the moment when I thought I couldn’t push anymore, she reminded me I could and her words allowed me to remain strong.

As a result, I was able to deliver a beautiful baby girl weighing in at 7.9 pounds who instantly took up all of my heart. Whitney continued to stay with me after the birth bringing those present snacks and helping me communicate with loved ones. She also visited the next day. Whitney was there for me from the beginning of labour through to the final push and afterwards. Her consistent and constant physical and emotional support made my birthing experience a successful and positive one. I am forever grateful to her and appreciative of all the love and care she showed me. I would whole-heartedly recommend her services to anyone.
