Testimonial for Kira Hendricksen

My husband and I were referred to Kira from another mom. When we found out I had to have our baby in a hospital because of a medical issue, I knew I wanted a doula there to support me and my husband. Kira was amazing. In the end, I had a C-section, and Kira was a huge help through it all. She helped us prepare a clear birth plan for my C-section, walking us through all the options we could control (many of which I had no idea were options).

When the day came (it ended up being an unscheduled C-section as my water broke early), Kira met us at the hospital and was fully prepared despite the extremely early hour. She walked us through what was going to happen, easing worries for both my husband and myself. She made sure the nurses and doctors read through our birth plan and helped me stay comfortable for the couple hours we waited before surgery.

Kira was in the OR with us, making sure my husband and I were ok. When our baby was born, Kira took photos while we met our little girl. Having her there, first to wait with my husband outside the OR while I was prepped for surgery, and then in the OR with us, was incredibly valuable. Without her, I think we both would have been far more nervous (neither of us had ever had surgery before) and we wouldn't have photos of those first moments of our daughter's life.

Kira has a calm, loving demeanor and is incredibly knowledgeable about the birth process. She truly loves what she does and I couldn't have found a better person for extra support. After the birth, Kira follows up and makes sure the transition with a newborn is going ok--she's willing to help out with whatever might be needed.

I can't say enough good things about Kira. She's kind and lighthearted, willing to work hard to keep everyone comfortable and do what needs to be done to give her clients a fabulous birth experience, no matter how the baby comes into the world.
