Testimonial for Kira Hendricksen

Kira was our doula for the birth of our second child, a baby girl, on Mother's Day.  From our first meeting with Kira, we were impressed by her enthusiasm and passion for birth, as well as her deep knowledge of the subject and ability to clearly communicate and answer our questions.  We felt like it was a no-brainer to go with Kira, so we booked her and are very happy we did.  We also really liked that we could easily pay for her services online with our HSA account--that was a nice plus.

My water broke around 8:30 PM and I was at the hospital by 9:00 PM.  Kira was a ferry-ride away visiting family for the Mother's Day weekend, but she returned to Seattle as quickly as she could once I got in touch with her.  She arrived right as my epidural was about to be placed (getting an epidural was always my plan).  She provided a reassuring voice and presence to a labor that ending up being longer than I expected and involved a little bit of Pitocin to get the contractions in full swing.  Kira quickly developed a rapport with our nurses, especially our main nurse, and it was clear that they respected her and that she was part of the birthing team.

We especially appreciated the in-depth debrief with her of our birthing experience a couple of days after delivery.  It made us feel like we had some closure to our experience.

Overall, I had the exact birthing experience I wanted.  Kira was a wonderful advocate and supporter of me and we would hire her again if the need arises.
